Y’all, I went to the Gyno yesterday for my annual exam. Well, I hadn’t been in two years but disregard that. It was a great appointment! See, I have some issues beyond the mental ones you’ve seen demonstrated here and yesterday I got some news that really and truly made me feel like I was walking on air.
After Ryan was born, my bladder was SHOT. I wear Depends, people. Depends. I’m 36 years old and let me tell you it’s not fun. I pee all the time and don’t even know it, not a river, just dribbles, but still. It’s embarrassing. Well, now there is a procedure to fix that and insurance covers it! No more buying diapers for myself at the store, no more being self-conscious when I’m watching a comedy with a group of people. Life-changing.
Next, my periods have been pretty horrific for the last year or so. I’ll spare you the details on that but there is a procedure called endometrial ablation that is going to help me with that, too. My period keeps me at home but after this procedure, that won’t be the case! My shut-in days are over!
Last but not least, I’m getting my tubes tied. Five years into Ryan’s childhood I cannot imagine having another child. It would be traumatic and Sean and I don’t use any BC so we’re really just tempting fate here. I can’t get my tubes done until 3 months after these other procedures but it’s going to be great.
I have felt gross, dirty, embarrassed for so long and now that all these things are going to be fixed I’m going to feel like a normal woman again. I can go out in public and dance if I want to. I can RUN! Couldn’t do that. I can JUMP! Couldn’t do that either.
I’m so excited and in a couple of weeks I go in for my tests to make sure I’m a candidate for all these things. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
