|Me! and Mary Lou Ballweg at the EA booth|
Which provides a *seamless* segue from This to That...
I was so incredibly bloated and swollen during my November & December periods that I took pictures so you can adequately empathize... Maybe I just never notice the extra inches when I was heavier, but when it was 3 weeks til finals and 1 classmate & a prof asked if I was pregnant I about lost it.
Side note: I am officially terrified of medicated cycles. I have obviously never experienced one, but after seeing pictures and reading some of the stories regarding "The Injectibles' Belly" and seeing what my gut does on it's own.... I'm investing in muu-muus.
Second side note, first TMI note: I know GI issues are extremely commen with endo girls, so I guess I'm just looking for any suggestions... AF brings over a week of lazy guts. And I'm sick of drinking myr.ilax. Help.
For perspective, this is me on an average day. Actually this was taken after got back from my parents' house, so I'd been eating all kinds of crap for a week. But that's neither here nor there.
