Hey there. Yep, I’m nonetheless right here. Soz for the radio silence, obtained a bit overwhelmed by stuff and therefore felt the necessity to disguise away and distance myself from social media and all that shiz for some time. Nervousness ranges have been excessive, my gremlin robust, and any sense of my true self had effectively and really fucked off. I used to be a hormonal wreck, in want of a while out. Which is strictly what I did. And boy has it achieved me the world of excellent. I’m again feeling stronger, happier, and extra like I can deal with this shit and so I believed seeing because it’s a brand new yr I’d begin a brand new little function on my weblog, which is principally me having a weekly mind dump. The thought being that I get to creatively empty out the contents of my poor overactive thoughts, while additionally hopefully offering you lot with just a few giggles and possibly a way of reduction in case you’re feeling some of these things too.
New Year Resolutions
What a load of bollocks. I’m not gonna sugar coat this shit (or glitter the turd – my new favorite saying) I hate new yr resolutions. They do my bloody head in. Firstly, nobody sticks to them. Secondly, January is shite sufficient as it’s with out including much more crap to the pile. And thirdly, certainly we’ve all had sufficient of restrictions!!!
There may be a lot stress presently of yr to set resolutions and targets for the yr forward. Social media feeds are inundated with photographs of individuals beginning new diets, new train regimes, operating on daily basis, not consuming, slicing this, slicing that, or no matter else they really feel wants altering. However to me, all this narrative tells us is that who we’re isn’t ok. Which is a bucketload of bollocks for my part.
I get that January appears a logical time to reassess, to start out afresh. And I’m all for that to a point, in any case somewhat little bit of self enchancment by no means did anybody any hurt, it’s by no means good for us to relaxation on our laurels so to talk. What I do have an issue with, is the way it’s bought to us and the stress of feeling as if you ‘have’ to make a decision. I’ll be completely trustworthy with you, I caved this yr. I sat down with a pen and pocket book decided to jot down a listing of issues that wanted to alter. I spent ages staring down on the clean web page in entrance of me racking my mind, attempting to consider something, something in any respect that I may resolve to alter. Don’t get me fallacious, I certainly not suppose I’m excellent, nor do I would like or try to be, however what bothered me is how interested by resolutions created a unfavorable narrative inside me. As a result of the extra I struggled to provide you with any, the extra it made me really feel as if this was simply one other factor that I had failed at. Fucking sensible. I ripped out the web page, screwed it up, threw it within the bin and promised myself this – that this yr greater than the rest I’ll stay true to myself. Not a decision. A promise.
Little HRT Replace
I’m in a extremely good place hormones sensible in the intervening time. There was a little bit of a blip once I first began the HRT, in that it gave the impression to be making my nervousness worse regardless of all of the bodily signs being alleviated. I introduced this up at my 3 month test up and my dose was upped. Only one month on and I’m happy to say that contact wooden every thing appears to be doing what it ought to. I take progesterone capsules for half the month and am now on 3 pumps of oestrogen gel each night time. Each the bodily and psychological signs that I used to be experiencing have now all just about disappeared. Which is a (pardon the pun) bloody miracle! I’d love to do just a few extra posts on my expertise of this, as I understand how a lot of you’re going by comparable, or at the very least suspect you is likely to be. It’s at all times actually useful to listen to from you about what you’d like me to put in writing about, questions you might need, and so forth. so please do get in contact and let me know. My DM’s are at all times open, and regardless of the reasonably impersonal automated response, I’ll get again to you. The courageous a part of me wonders whether or not a Fb dwell might be a goer… however then the scaredy pants facet of me thinks nobody would flip up and that will be awks. So yeah, let me know what you concentrate on this too please my loves.
Beginning As I Imply To Go On
A few fortnight earlier than Christmas I fell in poor health, like correct take to my mattress in poor health. I don’t actually do in poor health. I combat it, refuse to really feel it, battle on. Us females are good at that, proper? Anyway, this notably nasty bug, effectively and really floored me. After all, the pure response was to suppose it was Covid, cos effectively that’s what we’ve been brainwashed into considering. A Pack of lat flows and a PCR take a look at later, revealed it wasn’t Covid. 10 days spent principally in mattress, not consuming, shitting yellow liquid out of my poor sore bumhole, and coughing up chunks of lung butter, I emerged feeling and searching like an emaciated Victorian avenue urchin. It wasn’t fairly.
I do know that is going to sound correct woo woo bizarre, as a result of actually I believe it was simply flu and sure I’m 100% signing as much as a flu jab subsequent yr, there is part of me that thinks that possibly, simply possibly, me catching this bug was for a purpose. That possibly I had been combating issues for thus lengthy, that each one of my energies had change into blocked, that maybe my physique wanted a ginormous bodily and psychological purge to ensure that it to reset. Does that sound loopy? Since then, I’ve felt this shift in me. Clearly, I really feel immensely higher in myself now that I’m consuming correctly once more and in a position to go away the home and train. However my mindset has additionally modified since then. It’s as if I’m lighter, like one thing has been lifted from me, and it brings with it essentially the most immense reduction let me inform you.
Final yr was a shit present – each actually and figuratively – however I’ve come out of it and moved into 2022 feeling extra like me than I’ve in an extended outdated time and it feels superior.
So no, I gained’t be making resolutions, they’re effectively and really moving into my fuck it bucket. This woman has obtained no extra shits to provide – fairly actually!!
