How do they say that … life can throw you a curve ball, right? Well, however they say it, life did. And the curve is definitely not how I want it to be. Sorry guys, here comes a bit of “women-talk” …
Ladies my age tend to enter their menopause or, as it is in my case, been through it. It’s really a joy to say goodbye to all the monthly nuisance. As we used to say among my friends, “you can tell God is a “man”, or else He wouldn’t have invented that monthly period.”
Anyway, I was done with it and happy about it. Until a few weeks ago. All of a sudden I got all the symptoms of an upcoming period again. I dismissed it as being ridiculous. It’s been three years now and you don’t start all over again.
But I did. So I went to see my GP who did some tests and send me to the gynecologist who did an gynecological ultrasound. He was very nice and showed me that my endometrial lining is way too thick. He explained that that means there is some abnormal activity going on.
So, now I will get an endometrial biopsy in a few weeks time. We will have to wait and see what that brings.
I’m not scared yet, but it’s not what I ever thought would happen. There’s a lot of “what if” going on in my mind.
It also made me realize how blessed I am to know God. I can’t imagine facing all of this without Him.
