Mattress update...

Okay so I write something about my new mattress and then nothing... Crickets in the background nothing. So here is the deal...I ordered a Serta Presidential Suite mattress (the exact same kind at the MGM) and on Monday it arrived! They set it up, took away my old mattress and left all within minutes. And then...there I stood looking up at my mattress. It's soooo tall! I almost need a step or two just to get on the mattress. Funny that I don't remember that part from Vegas. Either way...I love it! No more back pain...I actually feel weightless. I wish there was an invention for that would allow me to feel the same way standing up.

Weekend update...HORMONE HELL! Is it possible that my entire body could play a game on me and overdose in estrogen? I had PMS all weekend...the kind of PMS that allows you to plead temporarily insane. Friday night...worked until 7:30ish on a grant that and then came home to an exploding headache and bed! Saturday...work, work and work again. With random tears throughout the day. I cried at anything and everything! I stayed home and did nothing, talked to nobody and hoped that I would wake up in the morning and feel normal again. No such luck! Today...more crying and bloating. Being a woman is crazy! My mom use to tell me that PMS went away after having a child...which I know is not true. Teachers use to say that when "girls" exercise and eat well PMS is not as strong...not true either! So what is it? Why are some months fine and others more like living in a Lifetime movie? So random!

PMS can get worse with age, so I don't know why having a child would improve it! Seeing as you're still getting older. I've been having it much worse than I used to :-(

Hate to burst your bubble, but I am going through my "change of life" and definitely STILL have freak outs!!!

I call them tantrums. And yes, I hear that they never go away.

Good luck, my dear.

I can relate! I've definitely been PMSing this week as well. No fun! I do find if I eat well (limit sugar/caffeine) and exercise my PMS is significantly better. Our bodies all seem to react a bit differently, so this may not work for you.
