The Trifecta...

**Warning: There will be some discussion of female bizness. If you think this will cause your eyes to bleed, much like the crying vamps on True Blood, then stop reading now. However, if you stop reading right now you are still obligated to leave me a comment about how much you love me.**

I'm feeling a little bit better today. Yesterday I had the trifecta of badness...and I'm not talking about three loser horses.

A little back story...

I started taking Yaz in May to help with my PMDD & all the other bad things that happen during your period. My doc had given me a two month supply along with my Rx so I didn't have it filled at a pharmacy until last month.

It was there the pharmacist told me this particular medicine needed pre-approval. Blah, blah, blah - basically my doc had to sign off that I was taking this because it was medically necessary and not because I just didn't want to have babies. Cause there are a million other cheaper b.c.'s out there & my insurance company is a bunch of cheap bastards.

Since Yaz is a brand name drug with no generic it's expensive even with insurance, so to save myself some dinero, I decided to utilize the mail order program that's available through my provider.

That explains why I took my last pill on Sunday without any new pack to start. And my period started.

Yesterday, I was on my period (1), without any pills to stop it (2) AND I was on day 2 of the Flat Belly Diet Jumpstart (3).

The true trifecta of badness.

No pills Monday & Tuesday morning meant that it was the heaviest flow I've had since May and I really didn't know when my pills would show up.

The mail order company has a website but it's impossible to navigate & their employees wouldn't give me an exact delivery date. Plus the FBD jumpstart is 4 days of the bland ass food, no caffeine & 2 liters of water a day.

Seriously NOT what my hormones were hollering for yesterday.

Thankfully the pills were waiting for me when I got home yesterday. Otherwise I would have been elbow deep in chocolate cake & washing it down with a sweet tea...

...dang that sounds good.


Remember...it's your last chance to bid; Kori's auction ends tonight!

So, the pills really regulate your Jekyll and Hyde episodes? My dr. put me on Orthro Tri-Cyclen to help regulate my lady issues since having my tubes tied. Do you think it's possible the PMDD and irregularity of things is heredity?


ps. Joey is steadily eating grape tomatoes and wanting me to get her more... how much would she have to eat on that diet you are doing? A pint? or 2? She weighed 23 lbs at the dr's office yesterday, think she is over eating them and she won't gain weight? LOL

Oh Yikes! that is the trifecta of badness! Hope you are feeling better today... The BC pills made me so crazy I had to stop taking them completely. Apparently i'm hormonal enough as it is LOL

sounds fun... get preggo and the period goes away. LOL

thanks for the reminder about the auction I meant to check it out, now I will.

p.s. I have a wordless wednesday I think you might like... at least smile about.

That sucks! Glad your pills showed up and now you can go back to normal. Or at least they way you were. ;)

Kat said...

Ohhhhh...that is some badness.

Way back when I did Atkins for the first time...it says in his book to not start a diet the week you are getting your period :-) I admire your ability to stick to it with the hormones being in control!

Martha said...

That does sound totally unacceptable!! Sending you some virtual chocolate and buns of steel.

chocolate cake and sweet tea.... ohhhh, wait.. you said something else, ok, trying to focus here. I haven't been in the pill since... hmmm... 1995. That time of the months MEAN!

Thank heavens I don't work with you or know you irl - that would have been a hairy situation for sure.

Let me say that making the doc sign something kinda irks me. She wrote the rx, that should be enough. It is like the insurance company wants to dictate what the doctor does not the other way around - the doc is the one that knows you, your medical history, and your needs NOT the insurance company!

Looking forward to hear how the jump start went.

Tubes are tied and I had an ablasion...best thing I EVER did in my life :)

Shannon said...

I'm currently NOT menstruating nor hormonal... but chocolate cake and sweet tea does sound good...


sigh.



Good for you for sticking with it!

WhisperingWriter said...

Okay great, now I want some sweet tea. I'm currently sipping on water and it's boring.

Candice said...

One time I went to the dr thinking I had PMDD and I left the Dr's office with a diagnosis of .....


wait for it....

PREGNANCY!

LMAO.. Well, it's funny now, but it wasn't at the time.

Hmmm...I'm so intrigued by something called the Flat Belly Diet. I'll be off to google that after commenting here...

Anyway, glad the pills showed up and hoping you are back to your usual self!

Jen said...

Man, that was close.

Seriously... I would have been curled up in the fetal position clutching a bottle of wine....

glad you survived.
