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.

And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
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.
