The red flood gates burst open around 5 this morning. I know, gross but what is cruel is feeling like your uterus is being stabbed with Satan’s claws. I am seriously considering getting my tubes tied because I am over it and because of my SB. I have a high risk of conceiving a child with the same birth defect plus I have a million other things wrong with me.

I was in so much pain, that I didn’t even go to the library today to do my time. I felt like an asshole but in all fairness, I am a volunteer. Plus, I showed up yesterday. I do love it once I am over the motions of dragging myself there. I love the staff, discovering new material on the shelves when I am in the middle of a task, the smell of the library, the AC, and because of my actual job they always assign me crafts. It is nice to feel appreciated.

But while I am battling the red tidal waves and guilt, I am noticing my fat is sneaking back on my hips, tummy and butt. I did weigh myself and the gain is only a few pounds but pretty soon it is back to MyFitnessPal and omitting bread items. Boo.
