Not so Christmasy Day

Sorry, no warm heartfelt memories of Christmases today and this blog may end up being TMI for some folks (too much information) but damn it, it's what's in my head.

The main design flaw in God's creation is the lack of a reproductive off switch. Think how useful this would be. I mean this beyond the idea of unplanned or unwise pregnancies -admit it, we all know someone who should not be allowed to reproduce. I'm talking about the unnecessary inconvenience and down right painful experience no reproducing women experience on a monthly basis.

I don't have children. I will never have children. So why on earth do I need to have a menstrual cycle? Why can't I simply shut off my uterus? I don't mind if my ovaries work -or attempt to in my case. I can use the estrogen. But why do I need a uterine lining every month that is only going to cause me a great deal of pain?

Oh, I've tried to rid myself of this menace only to be told by my doctors that since my reproductive system isn't "unhealthy" (and having Polycystic Ovarian Disease isn't considered unhealthy?) removing said reproductive system would be "elective surgery." Not covered by insurance. Bastids!

Don't mind me. No I'm not PMSing. I don't have PMS. I'm MSing and it sucks!

But now, on to more appealing things.

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

Yep, been there and did that! I think the off switch would be great!

Amarinda Jones said...

Oh Jae! I so agree with you! I would love to have menopause. I beg my doctor for the big M. She always tells me I have years and years to go yet...bitch

As for Santa Claus...where do you get these bad boys?

Molly Daniels said...

Ditto...these hot flashes are driving me crazy! Flip the switch and end the damn thing! Please!

Sandra Cox said...

My Santa what nice abs you have. grin.

Go ahead, Jae, work yourself into as much of a lather as you want. I'll even add some foam to it! Bad enough our own bodies torment us...but, on top of that, the "health-care system" in this country (is there one?) sucks.

Hope you feel better soon, hon. Now go lick that Santa. It might help him slip out of his suit more easily.
