September PD1

Yesterday I got my period after 18 days late. The pain was terrible, it felt like someone trying to rip my uterus out of my body. I haven’t feel this kind of pain for quite awhile. Yes, I cried. I suspected jogging as the culprit.

I tried to make rice noodle for lunch, the pain was escalating so fast. I felt heavy cramps and I felt that I was going to passed out, I had cold sweats. It was terrible πŸ˜–

My husband came home from work around 5pm, I was curling on the couch. He said, “You look terrible, are you in pain?”. Yes, I was in so much pain!

I couldn’t sleep well last night. I took 1 x 200mg liquid ibuprofen around 11:30pm. But it didn’t touch the pain at all. I cried again, frustrated. The pain stayed until around 3am, I couldn’t sleep. I was watching a comedy tv show, but couldn’t distract my brain from my pain. And then I remember about massaging certain spot on my leg that might help with the pain.
I massaged that spot on my left leg, omg it was so painful! I kept doing it for about 15 minutes, I noticed that the pain had lessen. I felt relieved 😌 I massaged my right leg too, it wasn’t as painful as my left side. I was doing it until I fell asleep. Why didn’t I do it earlier? πŸ˜… I really have problem to remember things that useful for my condition 😬

This is my left leg this morning, do you see the bruise? Yes, it’s worthy! πŸ˜†


My First 5K Run!

I did it! I ran 5k for the first time! I was panting most of the time, stopped so many times, and ran very slow, but I did it! 😍😍😍

I cracked one of my toe nails yesterday when I walked to Decathlon, it’s getting worse today. I think it turned purple-ish πŸ˜†

I hope it won’t turned black and fall of my toe 😱 I blame my running shoes for this! My shoes also hurt the back part of my left foot. I think I need a new pair of running shoes 😁😁😁

Adeno pain updates:

I felt no pain on my uterus while I was running, so it’s a good news. I felt light back pain 2 hours after I have finished my run, which was not that bad… but I took 1 ibuprofen to make sure the pain won’t escalate. So far so good…

I will try to run again tomorrow if my foot doesn’t hurt too much.

6.95 KM Walk!

I took a long walk today to a sporting goods store, the total distance is 6.95 km or 4.3 miles 😁😁😁 Im so proud of my self! 

I’m thinking to try to jog again, I stopped to jog long time ago because it caused my period pain more painful. My pain was lessen these last 2 months, So I want give jogging another shot. Another reason is because my stomach fat getting bigger this summer, I have been so lazy on summer holiday πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜† I will start tomorrow, I hope I won’t feel any pain… My uterus, please be kind to me πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

Btw, I took some pictures along the way to the sporting goods store today and I want to share it with you all… Enjoy!

Walk + Seafood Buffet = Awesome DayΒ 

I walked a lot today. I walked from my apartment block to a supermarket downtown. It’s actually not too far, only about 1.5 km if I took a shorter way but I need to exercise so I took a longer way. It took 3.55 km to go there 😬I walked home from the supermarket but I didn’t turned on my walking tracker. 

My husband and I went to a seafood buffet for dinner. It was an all you can eat buffet and it had a various food sections. Sushi and sashimi sections, hot pot sections, western food sections, fried seafood sections, Chinese food sections, barbecue sections, fruits and drinks sections, desert sections, and a couple other sections that I don’t know what to call πŸ˜† It’s so awesome! Here are some pictures from the restaurant.

I only ate vegetables, salmon, and pickled ginger, so I think I’m still on my Endo diet track 😜 After finished our dinner we walked home. So total I have walked 7.9km today. You did a good job today, me! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

Wednesday Afternoon Walk

3.4 km walking exercise today 😍

 I actually walked more than that distance, but I stopped the tracking because I went to a mall at the last point on that map, lol. Up until now, my pace tracker counts 6 km walk 😁 Good job! 

The pictures below are some places that I passed today.

September UpdatesΒ 

Wow, it has been almost 2 months since the last time I wrote here! 

A little updates:

  • My mom had a mini stroke last month, I went home to Indonesia to check on her. She’s recovering very well, thank you God, her doctors, my cousins and my neighbors.
  • My cycle went crazy 😜 It went from 22 days on July 9 to 15 days on July 24. And then 21 days on August 14. Today is day 30 of my cycle but I still haven’t get my period. I have checked with my doctor, she said it’s okay.  FYI my cycle is getting shorter since I have diagnosed with Adenomyosis. It used to be 28 days on my 20’s.
  • Last month’s period was pretty easy. I was traveling from China to Indonesia when it happened, and the pain was pretty manageable with ibuprofen. The pain level was about 1-5, pretty good isn’t?
  • My new Ayurvedic medicine has arrived
  • I asked a favor of a friend who went home to the United States to buy me a couple bottles of liquid ibuprofen (yay!). Liquid ibuprofen (Advil brand) is difficult to get in China, so I felt like just won a lottery! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
  • I have been so lazy this summer, I haven’t exercise at all for almost 2 months 😬 I will restart my walking exercise today.
  • I dropped a class for this semester because I missed the class starting date. I’m a week late πŸ˜… 

That’s all for now, will be back soon with my first walking exercise update!

RIP Chester πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

I’m a big fan of Linkin Park since I was in high school. I fell in love when I heard “In The End” on the radio. High school was a hard time for me. My parent was on financial problem and they fought everyday. I felt alone and angry. I hated my parents because they fought all the time, it was a soul torturing. I thought they didn’t care about me, they only care about my sister and would do anything for her but not for me.

Linkin Park’s songs felt like speak for me. Chester’s voice is so deep and painful, I felt that he sang for me. 

It has been 17 years since their first album, and I still become their loyal fan. Their music has changed to a different direction but one thing that hasn’t changed. Their lyrics are so deep, they are speaking the pain, the truth of our hearts. That’s why I love them.

On Friday morning China time (July 21, 2017), my husband told me that there’s a bad news, the lead vocalist of Linkin Park has died. I thought he was joking but I didn’t see him laughing. He showed me an article from CNN that stated Chester committed suicide. I felt heartbroken, I sobbed. It’s just so unbelievable. 

Today is Monday. I have been crying on and off since Friday. I couldn’t listen to Linkin Park songs anymore since then, it’s too painful to hear Chester’s voice. This morning I accidentally play “NoboyCan Save Me” from one More Light album. I broke down in tears, it sounds like suicide note… it’s so sad… 

I cried a lot this morning, I’m still feeling very sad. Guess what? My lower back started to feel hurt and I feel light cramps. Adenomyosis would like to join the party… I know stress and sadness feeding Adenomyosis but for now I really can’t control my feelings πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”

Goodbye Chester, you will always be my hero. You always singing for me these last 17 years.. I’m sorry you’re in so much pain all of these times… I hope you found your peace now.. I will keep you in my prayers…

Dear God, please take care of Him πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­
