After coming back from a hurried trip up to North Carolina and Virginia, my husband and I came back home and immediately went back to our jobs. My first day back I fell into a creek at 10:30 AM, and stayed in my wet work boots chopping down tree limbs and bushes until 3:00 PM or 1500 for those of you that run on 24 hour time.
Of course I immediately caught a cold. I went back to work the next day and the next sighing at the increasing difficulty, and how out of shape I was just from two weeks off. Add not one but two work parties, both of which had either my boss or his Chief in attendance, mix in a little bit of maybe my sister in law and her beau are going to come live with us maybe not, a dash of arguing with hubby, and some post Christmas shopping money troubles and you have the perfect storm of stress.
Maybe that’s why I’m now bleeding like the river Nile after a series of plagues only 14 days after my last period? No cramping, and not a huge excess of blood but still worrying.
I’m 21. So I’ve had my period now for 10 years, and I’ve never had mid cycle spotting or bleeding of any kind. And I’ve had one child already, last year. So…what the heck is going on right now?
Is stressing about my stress and whether it caused this or not making this worse than it has to be? I set myself a doctors appointment like a proper adult, but now I’m terrified of whether or not they’re going to tell me something like I’m dying now.
Anyone else get all jittery jabbery and stressed out during the holiday season? What do you do to cope?
I’m just going to make another cup of Chai tea and try to settle in for the day and enjoy my Christmas break until I go back on the 2nd. Maybe if my vajayjay stops it’s impression of a Molded from Resident Evil 7 I can take a nice calming bath and do adult lady things like painting my nails or putting a mask of some sort on my face.
Sigh, wish me luck.
