Hormonal Yuckiness

Hey all, long time no blog. My mom has been in town and we had a pretty busy weekend. My cousin graduated from college on Friday so we had a bunch of family stuff going on, but we also got a lot of solo mom-daughter time, which I loved and sorely needed. She left yesterday and now I'm totally bumming about going back to work and school. My summer class starts this afternoon, and between research and clinic I'm working over 40 hours this week. Ugh boo shoot me now.

Clinic is fine, I'm just bored there. This is not the type of work I want to do. I'm not very good at it, and it doesn't feel like a good use of my time or talents. Lately it's been sucking all the energy and inspiration out of me, and I still have another three months to go. I'm still working at the university research center, but the one guy I really enjoyed hanging out with there just quit. Plus, due to weird funding issues this summer, I'm not doing as much research with my advisor, which has been my main source of intellectual stimulation and inspiration. So I'm bored and irritable and entirely underwhelmed.

Sorry for this, I think I'm just hormonal and cranky. My period is over a week late and I'm in full-on PMS mode. Something is definitely up with my system; my period hasn't been this late in almost two years, the pelvic pain is still flaring, my face is breaking out, and I've been sad and teary for two days. I was supposed to see my College City gyn this week, but I will probably reschedule because I don't want to have my period when I see him (eww sorry tmi).

Yuck. What is wrong with me? Now I'm crying at work and I don't know why. Maybe a better update tomorrow.

  1. I really hope things start looking up! Sounds like a lot of things that aren't so fun all at once. I hope your class goes well! Sorry about the boredom at the clinic. I'm sure you're better than you think, but I can understand where you're not terribly happy working there. Hope the hormones decrease and things stabilize again mood-wise for you. Hang in there!
