31, “menopause” and moods.

Hello friends!

I hope everyone is doing well! Spring is here! Now, I am just waiting for consistent sunny days with low pollen count so I can ride my motorcycle without a raging sinus headache. Sigh.

Anyway, it has been a while and I have had so much weighing on my mind. I believe I mentioned possibly taking a new endo drug – Orilissa and I did end up taking the plunge.

It was and is still terrifying.

Hormones – messing with them is a risk. I always feared having to change a birth control etc because you just never know what side effects you may have physically and mentally. However, I am happy to say that I have not really had any issues with the Orilissa. My pain has decreased over all and that is what was important to me.

Sure, most people will say “it is a band aid” and its true. But surgery is not something I want to deal with right now. In fact –  with the time associated with recovery etc. I couldn’t do it if I wanted! So, I am taking it easy and paying close attention to my body in the mean time. Any slight issue and I am done with it. That was the promise that I made to myself. Although the thought of having little to no estrogen in my body is odd…. at 31. Hello medical menopause 😳

Bday side note – Did you see that 31? YUP! In the middle of all that mental battle of going back and forth – deciding if I want to throw more medication in my body on a daily basis, I turned 31. The end of April just snuck up on me – yikes!

It was quite unremarkable.

Honestly, I really did not do anything because I had a stomach flu…good times (cursed). Over all it was just… a mess for many reasons. But you see…I am older now, even since then 😉 ,  so I can handle these things like a true adult! Ahem.

Other than that I have been more motivated to do things. Things around the house, in the house, in the garage, the motorcycle! A whole lotta girl power over here & putting my tools to good use! Depression & pain on a regular basis causes these litttttle (huge) piles of things to do. You neglect them for so long, ignore the clutter, the house “to do” list and just sleep. That has been me, my life and I am slowly coming out of it. The reduced pain has helped in this for sure. So… since the dogs are not going to use their paws to fix things – it is up to me…..sooo I am trying my best!

I would also like to note that since Orilissa has worked for me, it may not for everyone and that is okay! No matter the methods – please try to remember to stay kind to others and their journey!

I hope everyone is doing well and that you are soaking up some vitamin d.

–>Share something with me in the comments! Recent happening, adventures or random facts?!? <–

Take care and chat soon!!!

    Hey Kat, welcome back after your extended absence. Vitamin D is banned in Michigan this spring. I hope you have plenty in our sister state! So good to hear you’re getting some relief from your chronic pain….what a burden that’s been for you. So, get out on your motorcycle. I know you’re, um, Born to be Wild. Even at the advanced age of 31. ❤ ❤
