  • HAHA, my new bra arrived. Yeah, there is no way I can wear this one. The band size is perfect, unfortunately the cups are so hilariously gigantic that I could probably fit both breasts into one. I expected it to be a little loose, but it's even worse than my old bras. I wonder if I can be shady and return it to a store for the full retail dollar amount... Returning it to the ebay seller would not actually get me any money back. Or I guess I could personally sell it back out on ebay.

    Conclusion: Mail order bras, while cheap, are really not something I would recommend unless you definitely know your size for a given company. It really sucks being an unconventional size that is not carried in stores.

    [Edit to add] Ok, I'm going to the mall tomorrow to exchange it for a 40DDD, which I believe (hopefully) should fit reasonably well. They only carry up to DDD in the store so that's the best I can do. That seems fair, because it's just trading for a different size. It should be no skin off their nose, and that way I get a bra I can wear, and I won't be out any money.

    Hopefully they will be okay with that.

    I had to agree to go to the flea market tomorrow and keep my friend company in exchange for the ride to the mall, so I might wear something frumpy to avoid attention. I don't know, we'll see. I resent feeling like I need to wear unflattering clothing to avoid being harassed, but would I rather wear unflattering clothing or be harassed? Neither. Blah.

      Here is another suggestion from the lady who thinks she knows it all: Booda Dome (brand) Clean Step Litter Box (the specific style). Got one for Rudi because it has a built-in ramp - easier on his hips that way. I got mine at PetSmart. No way in hell your cats are tossing much out of this one - mine like to play kitty-excavating-company as well.

      One of mine liked to walk straight into the old-style covered litter box, parked-car style - and pee out of it because he would never turn around so his kitty-heinie was pointed towards the back of the box...

      The Booda is two-piece: a top dome and the actual pan. Easy to clean. I plan on getting a second soon.

        We have kids, and our fondest hopes and dreams are that our toothbrushes live quiet and boring lives. You really don't want to be intimate with a toothbrush that has led an exciting life.

        • 211 again today. It's 5am. Getting ready for the flea market. Ugh.

          Wish my period would gtfo. It's heavy this time. Do not want.

          • Look on the bright side. A heavy period is (usually) a sign of good health. It means your body has the resources to build up a nice, thick lining for any babies, and the muscle tone to produce good, strong contractions to get it all out when it is not needed. You are building a better body.

              I suppose that's a good way of looking at it. I just feel a little resentful that I have a hormonal IUD and it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Like, say, giving me light/nonexistent periods. That would have been nice, but I guess it just didn't shape up that way.

              The flea market ended up being REALLY SWELTERINGLY HOT, and I was not dressed for it. I wore thick jeans and a thick tshirt. Not fun.

              Good news, however, I was able to exchange the bra for a 40DDD and it fits very well. I probably could have even gone with a DD. The sizes for that company are seriously fucked up... Here's hoping I lose more tit and can switch to a different bra company.

                My uterus, with it's scant and weak periods, is suddenly feeling vastly inferior.
                Good thing I don't want it to do anything silly like make a baby.

                  Same here. I still have some of my uterus left and I get these weak ass periods. I wonder if this will affect our health later on? And yes I worry about my hormone levels, for health reasons since I don't have baby plans either.

                  • I know I need to get my Mirena out at some point for health reasons (I technically have 3 more years on it, but maybe I will get it out early). It's just, if my periods are still heavy even with it, I DO NOT want to see how bad they are without it.

                    Like, I always thought my horrifically-painful, Carrie-style periods from before were a PCOS thing, but maybe that's just how they are for me. God I hope not.

                    • I got an old style copper IUD after my last son was born and one of the results was much heavier periods. Interesting, however, one of the few miraculous results of supplementing iodine was that my periods normalized again. After many adventures with iodine I finally settled on about 1 mg/day. Any higher and very bad things happen. BWAHAHAHA!

                      • I've had two friends with the copper one and they both experienced horrific periods afterward too.

                        I specifically got the hormonal one because my periods were already horrific and I literally could not imagine how they could even be worse than they already were. I used to barely be able to get out of bed the first few days, and would actually sob from the pain.

                        So, I mean, I'm glad my periods are more like "normal" ones now, but I am still scared of what's going to happen when I get it out. I DO NOT want to go back to how it was.

                        • Could you just have it replaced with another hormonal IUD? I will have to have my copper one replaced soon. Unfortunately with my blood clot history, hormones are out.

                          • Yeah, I could, but I've heard people talking around here about injecting hormones (or having an implant) is probably not the most healthy thing.

                            I would want to know more about that before I made a decision based on it, but it seems reasonable enough to me. Also, I worry about hormones in the water supply, which I am contributing to. However, personal grief has a place in the equation as well. So I dunno.

                            • Hopefully, by the time you have to have the IUD removed, your body will be in a whole different state, and you'll have a different(better) period experience.

                              • 211 again today. Come on!

                                Also, I'm concerned about a dark grey stain that started between my front bottom teeth and is now spreading to the right in a thin horizontal line. I first noticed it spreading maybe a couple weeks ago? I do not like going to the dentist but I think I will need to. I hope to god it's not decay. And I think I should start oil-pulling again because that really helped earlier this year. I mean, it didn't help with the grey stain, but it helped with tartar buildup which may be making things worse.

                                Fuckin teeth. I hate teeth.
