Oh thank you so much!!!
I am planning to give myself up to 3 months to recover if I need it. I'm self employed, so I've "x'd" off my calendar until the end of January. Knowing me, and all my issues, I'm going to need lots of down time. I promise to go really slow and give myself all the time I need to get well. That is so important!
I appreciate your encouragement so much. I'm dealing with a lot of "should I?", "shouldn't I?" with this. But after this week's period, it's a definite "I MUST"!!! My period gets more painful and longer and heavier every month that goes by.
I feel better knowing that others have had success!
