Default October chit-chat

not much to say this morning gals, but i thought throughout the month someone might have something to say.

like most months i can't believe it's october already. i usually want time to slow down, but I'm already ready for winter break! hope everyone is fit as a fiddle. it's kinda slowed down in here, but such is the life of the alternachick forum.

and i know no politics, but the vp debate is tonight! should be interesting to say the least and that's all i can say, right? right.

later!

holy mood swings! I just feel the KILL KILL KILL and an occasional EAT EAT EAT thrown in just for funsies. I've had it really bad the past couple of months. Then again, I've sort of been a raving lunatic in general- no matter what time of the month lately.

Mood swings were a prob for me recently (like a roller coaster ride with Sybil at the switch)-because of the pill I was on. I'm on the nuvaring now and I barely get any symptoms of pms. I'm much happier (and so is my BF!)

I become insane with rage when I'm pmsing. Sometimes I just lock myself in the house and don't go out. Its safer for society that way.

Hey missygith, I've been on Mirena now for 6 months, and I have the same problem with cravings! Oy! Still, it's better than actually having my period...

Does anyone have any tips to curb the cravings a little bit?

I got the Mirena five years ago. It's almost time for it to come out. Have either of you ladies noticed problems with weight loss since getting it? Maybe it was just the cravings that did it, LOL. Also, be warned, your periods will come back with a vengeance during the last six months of the thing, at least mine have. The only thing that has helped with the cravings is completely cutting refined food out of my diet. I eat like a cave woman. It helps, some.

On the BC note-I think I'm all messed up. This pill stopped working for me (in the OMG I am irritable and moody ALL the time sense) so my doc put me on the nuvaring, which I loved, but now I'm starting a week early! Cravings haven't been too bad, but my moods & H2O retention are crazy!

Hi my girly-girls! Posting from the blackberry again because I wanted you all to know I was thinking about you! I can't comment on everything right now but I'm giggling madly on the train with the Pms talk, and there are quite a few peeps here wondering what I'm on, laughing at my phone like this!

Anyway, i went to a WW meeting last night for the first time in a year and I was surprised I weighed the same as then. Good surprised as we all know it can be worse. My former gym buddy is now my meeting buddy! I'm so happy, I much prefer going to meetings with someone.
Anyway, I promise to not be such a stranger and hopefully I can pop in later to be reply more personally to the chickies here.

Okay, my week has been insane and it is only tuesday. I think next week is going to be TOM, and I havn't been on birth control to regulate that...so IDK, I lose track of my cycle. I think I like having my tubes tied except for the fact that I can't just decide to skip a period by skipping the pink pills. Dangit!
I want to try out a differnt gym location for the gym I go to. It has weight machines instead of free weights and stability balls and yoga mats and its only across the street from the location I frequent. I figure if I have to find a babysitter in order to get to the gym then my golly I'm going to find a babysitter. Besides, people are coming out of the woodworks offering to babysit for me since I've magically aquired two extra toddlers to keep me busy.

Good morning all. I had a less than stellar week but it's WW day again and I'll be going to face the music this evening regardless.

I'm not feeling that great mentally / emotionally and the lack of self-control doesn't help me at all. I just keep thinking "just ONE day, Renee" but the "need" to self-medicate with food and/or drink seems to win each time. Its like another personality, mocking and laughing at me. And it just makes things worse.

This is so not who I am, and I'm trying again, just ONE day to grab control of my life again. I have so many issues that are tearing me up inside and I have no real outlet, or rather I'm still struggling to share with others but it really seems old coping methods die a pretty slow death, even methods that clearly don't work!

Sorry to dump this on you guys, I just feel like if I don't talk to someone, even vaguely, I'm risking a big crash. And I really don't think I could handle that again.

Take care and I hope things are going well for you guys!
