Wearing white!

Hi Sisters,

I just had to share with you all that I am able (for the first time in my life) to wear white clothes!! I wore white capris yesterday and was so excited! I have NEVER been able to wear white pants, shorts, skirts, etc my whole life cause I never knew when I would start bleeding. It is so GREAT that I can wear whatever I want when I want. I don't even have to wear a pantiliner anymore. I feel so free and am so glad that I had the surgery. The first four weeks were really rough but I feel wonderful now (except for the occasional hot flushes etc and brain fog). Just wanted to give you new es out there a . It does get better; you just need to be gentle with yourself and have patience.

s and s, Joanne

How wonderful
I haven't worn anything white in years. Last time was probably my wedding gown. I was looking at some white capris the other day. I need to get some clothes for when I go back to work.
I should have bought them. Something in my brain just hasn't registered that I can wear white now!

I bought some white capris too & all new underwear. Now I don't have to have 2 sets. Good underwear & period underwear. Here lately, I didn't have any good underwear, they were all period underwear. Now all of my underwear is good. What a feeling!!

Every time I make a pee and wipe myself, I'm shocked. For years now, I thought pee was pink or red!

I wore white capris yesterday (first time since surgery I could wear any "regular" - non-drawstring pants). And wouldn't you know it - I dropped a small piece of chocolate in my lap in the heat - melted instantly!! LOL. So don't throw away yoiur stain removers yet, ladies - just get used to working on the other side of the garmet.

And I can't wait until I feel better - I am going to go through my drawer and throw out all of my stained undies. Not going to do it until I feel I can wear regular undies again instead of my granny panties. That way, I can buy new ones and wear them right away!!

I promised my co-workers that I would wear a pair of white pants on my first day back to work. I made good on my promise and wore white pants! It was fun!!!

I went clothes shopping Fridayy night - and since I'm a clearance rack bargain shopper, I tried on a pair of white brushed twill pants, but I needed the next size up. The bigger pants that were left were only in Khaki or black, so I went for the khaki! Woo HOO! I didn't have to buy the black!

It's so absolutely liberating!!!
