Apologies for the 'B' word in the title but I couldn't think of anything more appropriate to describe me at the moment lol. For a while now...maybe 4 or 5 months I have been all over the place. One minute I'm my normal happy self then in the blink of an eye I'm so low you need to scrape me off the floor. On the low days I can waste an entire morning or afternoon doing nothing but playing Whirly Word (note to self: remove from phone and ipad!) ... I can't be bothered with anything, no energy and I know my face is tripping me....I feel like I'm going to combust! My memory is more shocking than normal...concentration almost non-existent and feel teary at the drop of a hat. I don't want to see or talk to anyone...I have to force myself to socialise. This is hard as I LOVE my friends and I'm sure they must be wondering who stole the real Kerry and replaced her with a PB!!!
I suppose that was one of the reasons I started running and got back into Zumba as everyone knows (or should) exercise is a great form of 'feel good'. And it does but the 'feel good' is lasting less and less. Yesterday I was in great form...I went for a run then met up with Suzy Q at CB with the pups. The sun was shining and life was great. By the time I got home (less than 10 minutes) I could feel myself slipping and the rest of the day was torture. It has been in the back of my mind that I am at an age (47) that menopause could be knocking at my door. Not sure if I've had a proper hot flush as when they've happened in bed all I have to do is stick my leg out of the covers and things go back to normal lol. I know I haven't been my sparklicious self or fun to live with so today I took myself off to Holland & Barratt (thought I'd try the natural route before going to the doctors), marched in (literally) and verballed all to the poor woman behind the till lol. It was obvious she's had plenty like me come in ... she didn't bat an eye and marched me (literally) over to a row of green bottles that will hopefully be my (or should I say my family's) saviour....
Angus Cactus Agnus Castus! She thoroughly explained how it works....told me a story of how she put her daughter on it when she was 17 as she was a she-devil a week out of every month and her son locked himself away in his room for self protection lol. So here's hoping it will start to kick in asap and I'll start feeling fabulicious again :-D If anyone reading this recognises themself and has found a solution other than drugs please email me ... I'll try anything within reason lol!!!
If you're still with me after that well done lol!!! This is one of my catch up's ... my neighbour's son got married recently...not once but twice! First was in a registrar's office in Edinburgh then in a beautiful chateau in France. Of course I had to make a card and Bride Nikki was begging to be inked again...
I hope you're not bored with my WOW wedding cards...I just love making them :-D
Here are a couple of pictures of Rocky and Ruby at CB the other day...
