A quarter of my life

I was now passing clots the size of (what felt like) major organs. I swear I thought my liver had detached and slipped out of my body on a couple of occasions. By this time, I was down to 25% of my life. My period lasted one week. It took me about a week to prepare my mind to face my period and about a week to recover from it. Only one week out of the month was carefree. One week! I loved that week. The world was full of rainbows and Godiva chocolate. All was right.

    This is so strange..I have experienced exactly the same things that you have with this condition..the dam bursting,the organ sized clots that I have also described as ‘passing my liver’!
    Then theres the one week of normal living..I have told friends for years that I get one week a month to enjoy life undistracted.
    Most vacations have been postponed or cancelled because of this trouble!
    It may have saved my life, I was heading to NYC on 9/11, but cancelled because of cramps.
    I am not as educated as you, I drive a delivery truck for FEDEX, which is a nightmare in the heat with cramps and heavy bleeding.
    I actually came home from work yesterday cramping so severley that I thought I would pass out..got home and..ummm..threw a liver..haha..YIKES!
    I also have endometriosis, so that contibutes to my misery.
    I just had a transvaginal ultrasound last week which revealed 6 fibroids.
    Im seriously consideing a hysterectomy, Im 46 and have no children.
    Thank you for this link, it helps to know Im not alone.

    The funny thing is that I started to not even post about my “quarter of a life” or organ-like clots. I thought it would sound kind of crazy but something told me to just put it out there. I’m so glad I did. I now know that I AM kind of crazy but not just because of these dang fibroids. 😉 Dona, thank you for your comment. It’s good to hear from someone who understands. You have helped me and that’s much appreciated. My thoughts are with you.
