I’ve been avoiding this blog for a while because I’m trying my hardest to focus on good health. This means that I’ve been avoiding thinking of myself as someone who suffers from chronic health problems–even though I do. I was just trying to enjoy the good part of my month, basically.
Random updates: I’ve avoided meat so far this month. I’m not a vegetarian, but I’ve noticed that when I eat more vegetarian, I have less PMDD. It’s day 25 of my cycle and so far, no PMDD yet… I hate even typing that because you know how it goes with these things. Still, I used to get BAD PMDD from day 14 onward. For a long time, I knew to expect an absolutely terrible day on day 14. Then one day I realized I was well beyond day 14 and not suffering from massive hormonal flares.I didn’t find myself dripping with sweat or dealing with rages. The only thing I was doing differently was not eating meat.
I wasn’t even doing it on purpose. It’s just that because I’m so busy, I don’t always get to the grocery store when I need to. I also got really depressed last year. The entire second half of last year kind of sucked. So I ended up living off stuff like rice, beans, frozen veggies, etc. That was when I noticed my PMDD getting better. I had one month where I didn’t have any bad symptoms at all, pain or emotional. My period even surprised me that month, which NEVER happens due to extreme cramps for at least a week if not TWO weeks before. So, for these reasons, I have a little hope that eating more plant-based foods might help with my endometriosis and cysts.
Currently dealing with some painful cysts on my skin … That is definitely troubling. I’m hoping they clear up.
I think I’m going to make a Youtube channel to talk about skincare, hair, health and beauty/lifestyle type stuff. But I’m still keeping this blog anonymous as it’s easier for me to vent about everything.
All right, I think that’s all I have to update for now. I am trying so hard to keep the focus on health and not sickness. Doing my best, it’s all I can do.
I’ll leave you guys with another one of these relaxing ASMR thingies I love so much. This one really helps me calm down for whatever reason:
