Gentlemen, I don't mean to exclude you but this is women Issues right here and now. If you want to know all about it keep reading but I mean it's not gonna be pleasant.
Now that most of the men have ran screaming from the room, can we talk?
I mean can we really talk?
I have one nasty yeast infection.
And I've had some advice from a good friend. Thanks ! you know who you are. ;) And on her advice, yes I've been to the doctor.
Yes he prescribed something ( a cream) and it mostly worked, but I think I need something Stronger.
And whose idea was it to have that bacteria living down there just waiting for the right time to appear and make life a living hell? Like really, try sitting in public and not itch. Being woke up in themiddle of the night to scratch. Paints a picture, doesn't it? I've stopped eating bread; I've stopped most of the sugar. (Ok it takes time) and well I fell off the wagon on the weekend and had more wine than I should have and now I'm paying BIG TIME for it. I have never experienced anything like this in my life. I have noticed over the last few months that just before my TOM or AF , or whatever else you want to call it, I have become itchy and it went away after that was all over and done with. NOW It won't leave the building. My Dr. Thinks the cause may be Diabetes. I think he's full of it. I’ve had the tests and was to wait for the results and see him April 3rd. Well I guess I'm seeing him today, cause if he doesn't see me, you'll be reading about a woman who lost it in the papers. Where she took and knife and got rid of that itch problem once and for all.
There are so many things that could have caused this. Fatigue, diabetes, menopause, Bubble bath...the list goes on and on. BUT I'm going to blame FATIGUE! I haven't slept well in months. I have 2 kids who both seem to need me at night. Not through the night as you might think, but as they are going to bed. Nathan likes to cuddle before sleep and yes I did this with Miranda when she was young. I guess age is creeping up on me. BY the time I get up from cuddling. (I fall asleep before him every time) Its 10 - 10:30 Miranda wants to have her TALK with me. I love these talks. How much longer will she be living at home for me to have these hearts to hearts with her? But here again it's almost midnight every night before I crawl into my own bed and fall asleep. Then Nathan for some reason wants lately to get up at 4 a.m. I go and lay with him again and he will fall back to sleep in about 1/2 and hour. And then I'm up at 7 - 7:30. It's not every night that I'm up but it sure seems like it.
There are so many things out on the internet telling you what to do. I was looking for some foods to help and apparently there are 3 foods out there that will help with the PH Level of this tender and oh so itchy and sore area. BUT you have to buy whatever it is they are selling. What's with that? I'm taking the yoghurt supplements and eating the damn stuff. (I don't like yoghurt much) And then I read that you have to stay away from DAIRY PRODUCTS....Since when is yoghurt something outside of dairy? Eat whole foods and no red meat was another one. I can do the whole foods (I do that anyways) BUT red meat? I have a freezer full of red meat! Did I mention that my FIL was a beef farmer? SIGH.
As for doing the having loving relations with the Man of my dreams, (Ok My husband) that's all put on hold while this is going on. Apparently he can get it and transfer it back to me. LUVERLY! just what I wanted to hear.
Men you may re enter the blog, I will write something better for you tomorrow.
How many of you ladies have suffered with this and what finally clear it up for you?
