It’s Day 16 of my cycle. I just started my Ramadan fasting today. I tried on day 9, but I was in pain so I broke it. I decided to wait until I feel fit and that day is today. I have 8 days before my next cycle so I think that will be how many days I could fast this year.
It breaks my heart 💔 but I have to accept the reality and respect my body. I will be very grateful if I could make it for the next 8 days.
I have started to do yoga yesterday. The goal is to do it everyday just like before. My body has accumulated more fat on my belly, I will try my best to get rid of it and be healthier!
Yoga day 2: done!
I made it until iftar. The first day was quite easy. I barely feel hungry, just my mouth felt dry.
Tomorrow will be more challenging, I will need to continue cleaning the new apartment. Ganbarimasu!
It’s a promise, I will keep crawling.
I love the medicine colors! It makes me forget that I take that because I have a chronic pain! 😆😆😆
– May Cycle Day 10 –
After what happened yesterday, I decided to postpone my fast until my painful period has passed. I should respect my body and try again in a couple days or maybe tomorrow 😁
My Ayurvedic medicine has arrived yesterday evening. My doctor prescribed a slightly different medicine this time. She gave me special medicine that should be taken when I’m bleeding. I checked on the ingredients, it’s prescribed to boost hemoglobin and red blood cells production and anti inflammatory. I’ll talk more about the details of my medicine in different post.
Me and my husband moving to a new apartment soon. I have to check the new apartment today. I need to install a shower curtain, that’s why I need to measure the bathroom to make sure I get the right size. I also need to start to clean the apartment tomorrow 😖😖😖
I hope my uterus be kind to me today 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Pain… pain… go away… comes again some other day!
It’s day 3 of my period. I woke up at 1am because I felt so much pain on my lower back. I felt like somebody hit my lower back with baseball bat over and over again. I had cramps, it wasn’t the worst and I felt nauseous.
I took ibuprofen around 3:30am. Watched Family Guy so I can distract the pain while waiting the ibuprofen working. I fell asleep after a couple episodes and then woke up around 7am because of another series of pain.
I made honey lemon water, for detox. I had to wait for 30 minutes before I took ibuprofen with rice porridge that I bought last night. The pain was severe, especially the lower back pain. I could only cry while waiting the ibuprofen to react. I ordered papaya takeaway. I know it will help to reduce the inflammation. But I had to wait for 30 minutes for the delivery. When you’re in so much pain, even 30 minutes feels like forever.
It’s 10:18 now. The ibuprofen had been reacting, the pain level had decreased from 7 to 3/4. I also just ate my papaya, I don’t feel nauseous anymore.
My body’s feels so sore from the pain. I bleed so much, I felt that I have no energy. I don’t have any iron supplements, I might need to get a supply.
I feel so tired and beaten. This disease got me good. I need to get some rest.
