I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Freaks come out at night...

Or, maybe the AM. I woke up this morning feeling rather woozy. The first steps out of the bed were into the wall/window. I took some more stumbles into the bathroom where, for some reason, I thought it was a good idea to take a shower. I was fine, a little wobbly, but, looking it back it probably wasn't a good idea. ;) I took my BP, it was 74/45! WHOA! About 15 minutes later it was back up to 90/something (I'm usually low anyway). The rest of the day I seemed fine. I had an appointment with my ND today (naturopath). She wants me to keep an eye on the BP. I have been kidna dizzy the past few weeks-this may be why.

I should be starting tomorrow-Thurs...ugh...I can feel it coming! I will have to keep an eye on all of my symptoms (as usual).

Oh how awful - there is nothing worse than feeling dizzy. Look after yourself!

Oh geez! Be careful! How scary. I've actually been getting insanely light headed recently, too. No fun. Take care of yourself.

Also, about the endo diet thing- I am seriously a foody too! I adore food. I'm lucky because my boyfriend is a "I eat for fuel" kinda guy so I'm trying to take notes, but it's really really hard for me to give up what I love to eat. Hence the six years of endo diagnosis and never changing my diet. We'll have to keep encouraging eachother. Cuz I know I'm gonna fall off of that wagon at some point! :)

Wow!! That is low BP!!

I have dizziness problems too (not from low BP, though).

I finally broke down a couple of years ago and bought one of those plastic "shower chairs".

Something about standing in a hot shower just made me so dizzy! I actually fell into the shower door a couple of times before I broke down and bought the chair.

Whenever you stand up, try getting up slowly. With BP that low, I would think standing up too quickly could cause you to feel faint.

Hang in there!!
