Trying to stay busy and keep the monster of frustration away...

The last couple of days I have been doing as what and as much as I can from a stationary place... the sofa. My back has been bothering me again and I'm still having the problem I wrote about before. I will get to that in a few. I honestly can't remember if I posted anything about a 'friend project' or not so I will explain it now.

A month ago a friend on facebook posted a post where five people signed up if they wanted something home made from her but in return you had to re-post the message and five of your friends would sign up and have to re-post the message too. A 'pay it forward' kind of scheme. I ended up with six people who wanted something from me but I don't really mind and some how I have managed to gain a seventh. Good thing I have a year to complete these little projects.

One of projects is finished and two are in the process of being completed. I had to halt the friend projects to do some Valentine's Day gifts and cards. I've finally managed to nearly complete the 4-panel, wooden mini-screen for my girlfriend. It took me days to get this far but now I only have to reassemble it and seal it. Thank goodness!

I went to the doctor today and as it turns out she diagnosed me with Menorrhagia and will be putting me on another round of birth control only I have to take all of it in seven days. She said I would have some cramps and be really bitchy. Lovely... But she said it's supposed to force my body to stop bleeding and reset my cycle. If it doesn't work, they are going to see if I have fibroid's and I don't even want to think about what they might have to do to me then. Needless to say, if this doesn't get fixed with the birth control, I may very well lose any chance of having children. That doesn't sit well with me at all.

Needless to say with my back and this girly issue I've been really angry and upset. I haven't been able to get comfortable and tonight I'm hurting quite badly. So, I'm in a rush to finish everything I need to get finished and get my ass in bed so I at least get a couple of hours of rest.

Haven't brushed my hair in 4 days... I should be dead...

No, I'm not going for the dreadlocks look. I've showered and my hair is clean, I'm just too exhausted to care about brushing my hair, putting on make up, or doing much of anything.

The reason: my doctor put me on birth control to regulate my period since it was pretty much on going for well over a year. Only the birth control back fired, in my opinion. Not only did it affect my vision, which is now mildly blurry, it makes me nauseated, and I'm bleeding heavier than before and the cramps are debilitating. I've pretty much stained all of my pants and pajama bottoms and am having to seriously stain treat them. People are starting to suggest I wear depends or tampons and pads at the same time. And the best part of this, I stopped taking the medicine 4 days ago and things are just getting worse! I pretty much sleep off and on all day and night. Frankly, I shouldn't be alive.

All that aside, well, anything else I was going to write has left my brain in a mad dash because the gf's Dad is up and talking and I can't concentrate.
