Friday night.

I had good news today about car insurance. The first company I went to charged me $1400 per year and I thought I would shop around and find a better deal. I have a clean record for the last 18 years, that gotta count for something. Finally, I got it. $898!

It is time to take better care of myself. Now I found the car, the house should be ok too, I need to focus on my studies and my health. I will be planning my meals for the next week and go shopping and cooking this weekend. I may be able to workout too. I miss it so much.

I had a bad time at the clinic today. I had to leave the room during my last treatment. The cramps were so bad I couldn't see anymore and I almost passed out. I forgot my advil at home, thought I could make it but didnt. This can't happen anymore I feel so bad about it. I can say I was scared tonight, and the other therapists too! I called for help from the back room, I was sitting there dripping sweat and shivering lol the girls didn't know what was going on!

The cramps are usually bad, and this last months with all the stress it's been worse. It seems that my body is rejecting the IUD more when I am tired.

It's a wake up call, a reminder that I have the willpower to push myself and get things done, but my body can also tell me to stop. I realize that for the last twelve months or so, I never caught my breath. Crossfit competition last March (that was fun but the training was tough), then met thomas and started running around and help him with his projects all summer, then went through the break-up, joined the massage school, ran even more with the epidemy of pneumonia on the animals last fall, and finally spent the winter... well, kept running to make everything work. I need a break!

Have a great weekend my friends!

Anne when I was young I used to get cramps like that. I passed out in an Algebra class in high school and in a bank once!! It is scary. I hate that feeling of passing out. Things are on a roll and I'm excited for you. Great job with the shopping for auto insurance and so excited the house is going to work out too!! You will get back into your routines, give it time. And I agree with Sharon ... MASSAGE!!!!

Great news on the car insurance. I feel your pain Anne on the cramps. I used to be like that too. Try taking that advil 3 or 4 days before your period. It really works.
