Stag Party! Posted by Hello

Knowsley by name!

Misty is behaving himself, I think I must have frightened the life out of him!!

By friday, I was knackered and with the new tablets that Im on, me mood swings are up and down like a tarts

I feel really sorry for Paulie as he is getting full wack of them, on friday after work i called for a few bits from the local shop and when I tried getting through our back gate I ended up trapping me fingers in it, the slightest thing and I go off on one, got into the kitchen and launched everything that I was carrying across the kitchen floor.......

Saturday morning was the same, until we went to knowsley for the day for some serious Lion watching and chillin of course, on the way home we called in at me sisters house and had a right good giggle, me neice showed me her riding hat that me and Paulie got her for her birthday.

Today we have been to see Paulies dad and then called at a textile shop to get some new curtains for our front room, we normally have vertical blinds, but the cats are ruining them as they keep jumping in and out of the window.

I made us a sunday dinner today, we dont usually bother as we are normally out and about but it was bloody lovely and I also made Paulies dad a casserole that looked scrummy too....

Bloody Cats!

Im not sure what the heck is going on with our cat Misty, but tonite I could have bloody frottled him, this morning Paulie changed the cat litter as he normally does but did not put a lot in, not sure why, but I got home and fed the 3 amigos who were screaming like mad, talk about a cat chorus....

Then as I walked back into the kitchen after tea, Misty was there having a pee on me door mat, I could have murdered the ickle next I goes to get the bleech and disinfectant and low and behold none there!

TEMPER now flaring and curshing anyone or animal that gets in me way........

Dash to the local shop, came home and did the hole bloody house cause Im now paranoid, since yelling at him, he's gone into hiding till the biccies come out at bed time!

Not sure why the heck he is behaving in this way??

On a lighter note our helium has come for the baloons for the wedding so we shall be having a good giggle with

And Paulie has got me a surprise gift, well I think its for jiffy bag was through the post when I got home from work and me being me, normally opens all our mail, but for some unknown reason I just left the post on the side and now the package has disapeared!!

Bloody Scarey!!

This is bloody scarey its only 25 days till our wedding and I carnt wait for the bugger to be over and done with, all the preparation we have done is now taking its Im sure its going to be a fantastic day!

I keep having this dream that we forget the wedding rings or the caterers dont turn up or something goes really wrong...fingers crossed that nothing like this

We had another wonderful weekend, the bridemaids turned up and we went for their fittings, the dresses are lovely and my neice looks like a princess, they are both chuffed to bits, everything is done now apart from my dress which is being finished off next week....Im propper chuffed with it and Im sure no one else will have one like it...

We went to see Paulies Grandma yesterday and she had us in stitches, not bad for an 85 year old and I think she is having the nurses running about, cause we took her some flowers, she would not settle till they had gone in a vase, which Paulie had to go and find, her get well baloon is tied to her bed.

On the way home tonite I had to call for petrol or me car would not have made it up the steep hill that I car has to do every day, the garage seemed really eary and I could not put me finger on it till I had set off back home as I turned to check nothing was coming I noticed not one but 4 police cars all lined up.....

Tonite we have been to our local Matalan, they have some propper bargains there, I got some nice simple tops for work and then spotted a pair of boots, as me calves are very musscley from the horse riding I use to do, its difficult to find apair to fit but I managed to get some and the have sparkles down the side, propper trendy and will look propper bobby dazzler at christmas....

Time to chill and let Paulie check the weather situ out, he is nearly pulling his hair our cause its changes from min to min as to where the snow is going to be falling...

Tonite as I was leaving, me boss and the Financial Director had a few words with me to see if I was ok, I explained that things need to change, all for the better of course and that some people need to take a step back and leave things well alone, surprizingly both of them agreed with

Our diet is going well and we have lost 4lbs in the first week, which when you think about it, its like loosing two bags of sugar, hopefully next week will be the same or god willin a bit live in hope.....

It has taken me a while to pluck up the courage to write about something so personal to me!

PCOS – Polycystic Ovary Syndrome affects 1 out of 5 women. It is cause by cysts forming on the ovaries which in some cases can cause infertility and other symptoms such as being over weight, acne, abnormal hair growth, abnormal periods or non at all.

It has only just been recognised in recent years and there is no cure at all, just medication that can help.

My Story

It all started when I was 18 years old, I was getting married and my family did not want me to fall pregnant at such an early age, so I was advised to go on the pill, within 3 months I had gained 1 stone, not happy I went back to the docs and he gave me another one to try by six months I had gained yet another stone in weight.

I stopped the pill as I was getting really bad headaches as well, but my weight gain spiralled out of control and so did my non existent periods and talk about mood swings, I could have killed someone and not even known about it.

I was referred from one Doctor to another had countless tests which all came back with nothing, due to the lack of information on the condition, no one knew what they were looking for!

After years of suffering I changed my Doctors and when I went to see him, he looked at his medical book and referred me to the gynie clinic. They started various tests on me including a tummy scan and also an ovary scan. Well would you know, 10 years later one doctor finally found out what was wrong with me?

At the age of 28, I was finally getting help, first came the different pills, non of which worked, my depression got worse and they ended up giving me Prozac. At this stage I did not really care as I was off me head, I would go missing for hours and when asked “where were you?” I could not answer as I had not got a bloody clue.

I stopped the Prozac myself and returned back to the hospital.

This was the final stage, I had tried all the treatment, I had constant pain in my tummy and still did not have periods, I sat in the doctors office and we agreed that the next step was a hysterectomy, I was booked in for March 2001, hopefully this would be the end to all the pains etc.

After the op, I changed my life completely got divorced and started seeing Paul, He is the light of my life, and understood about PCOS and the side effects it had.

September 2001 I moved in with Paul and changed doctors again as things were still not right. After several visits to the hospital over here, I finally feel like we’re getting somewhere with the latest visit last week resulting in a new diet and some new pills to start taking. We will wait and see what happens this time.
