I'm in Singapore and considerably less than half-way home. If I have to spend 3 hours in an airport in the middle of the night, Singapore makes the experience a lot less unpleasant than it might be. But still. I wish someone would hurry up and invent teleportation; this journey is ridiculously long and annoying, even considering how far I'm trying to travel.
Also, my period has chosen today to pounce on me, after lulling me into a false sense of security by leaving me alone for half a year (and without even being pregnant, yay). And I'm getting recurrences of those annoying "migraines" (or whatever they were) I was having back in the summer. I have no reason to think these two events are correlated, mind you.
All being well I'm expecting to be back in Cam at around tea-time today. Which will be over 36 hours after leaving Melbourne, not too impressive. I'm still appreciating the free internet, cos not being cut off for that time removes one of the worst aspects of travelling. Save me some snow and some tea, won't you?
Not on birth control; I don't like taking gratuitous medicine. My period just randomly decided to desert me between about July and now. My mother is convinced I'm dying of PCOS (not that PCOS is fatal, but hey).
Migraine: the optician said there's nothing physically wrong with my eyes, and it might be high blood pressure. The nurse practitioner at the GP surgery measured my blood pressure and said it was normal. So the conclusion is visual migraines, which seems to mean they don't know what else it might be.
sorry i was being nosey... googled PCOS as i dint know what it is (curious also cos i have extremely erratic periods but never bothered to look into it), noticed this at the bottom of the page:
"What else could it be? The other conditions likely to cause abnormal periods include raised levels of prolactin and of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). ... Raised prolactin levels can occur together with headaches and some disturbances of vision ..."
hmm? (sorry if it's junk - i'm not very clued up on medical stuff)
