No, saying mean things about people who have made comments to some of us isn't necessarily the right thing to do. But, we all seem to deal with our female problems differently. As I have said before, my husband and I sort of make a joke out of it. In truth, it is not a joke to me. I had my consult on Saturday, and it is a huge probability that my ovaries will be taken also. This is not something I was counting on. So, taking out a little frustration in this way..in a way that doesn't hurt the feelings of those we are talking about...gives me a little giggle and therefore, makes me lighten up a little. I am not someone who says things out of line in order to hurt someone....but, everyone needs to vent. Sorry if anyone has been offended, no harm intended...hey that rhymed!

So today a co-worker whom knows that I have some health issues lately asked me how everything was, I told her "I had a hysterecomy seven years ago and now they have to go back in a remove my ovary" She looks at me and grinches and say "Well at least you keep one and can still have babies" GRRR so I looked at her and said "why you going to donate me your uterus after I kill you?" We jokingly insult each other all the time so it was not as bad as it sounds but it sure felt good being able to say it.

I feel like I want to scream if one more person tells me how lucky I am not to get my period and not have the cancer inside me anymore!!! The cancer, yes I know I am lucky and I am grateful....yes I guess I am lucky about not getting a period, but what about the hot flashes, nght sweats, sleepless nights, headaches etc....if that is all I have to deal with then I am lucky, but I do not need to be reminded evey day, especially from my family!!! everytime I talk to my mother, I hear the "you are so lucky that....." but no one knows what we deal with on a day to day basis, thank god for this website where we can talk to each other!!!!

I understand people are idiots. I hear all the time at least you don't have to have your period you are so lucky. Heard that just the other day and luckily it as a day where I felt totally empty inside and not anger. I just looked at them and said oh yeah don't worry I had more then my share before I had my hysterectomy to last me well into my 70's. I just got that dumbfounded look. Then a couple days after that the person was "ovulating" and cramping with it and I looked at her and said "HA HA I don't have to worry about that anymore...rememeber I don't have anything" she looked at me like oh! It finally hit her that it maybe wasn't such a great thing.

I think because this is all so new that I just am ultra sensitive to everything around me.....babies, pregnant women, everything that goes along with the menopause.....I think i had my first real mood swing at work the other day, I was happy and fine one moment and before you know it I was angered by something so little, Thank God I have a great staff and they understand and love me and then I come to the hystersisters and let how i am feeling out.....

I read your whole thing and can feel the anger you hold inside. it's not easy to let things go but you have too. You have to be for you and not for anyone else. You feel empty inside, I'm not there yet but I can tell you that you didn't have a part of you removed but instead a piece of evil that held your spirit! If you can find the time to look this up, it will change your life. It did mine. No, not a nut job here but a gal who has had to start over three times now and finally found someone 'worthy' of me! I had to believe I was worthy first.....look up Reike. It's a mind, body way of life that will give you so much inner piece with no hocus pocus and witch doctors! It's a way to be, to help you heal physically and spirtually which will give you the key to ever lasting piece.....

I wish you well in all that you do and trust in yourself that you CAN be what you want to be, you have the power within, now set it free!

OKay, I need to "chime" in on this only child deal! I am an only child my mother had a very hard time having me, and I am not totally sure about why she had no more. Anyways, I have always enjoyed the special bond that I had with my mother and wouldn't trade it for anything. I now have two boys and boy let me tell you it would be easier with just one, but I wouldn't trade either of them.
I think that people just don't really understand what I am going through, I have had some of my employees ask me things like, "Can I have all your pads and tampons?" and "Will you grow a beard without your ovaries?" I usually then go outside and cry, and the one friend that actually gets it is my transexual friend who wants ovaries. How screwed up is that?

I have one child. I wanted more, but I am glad to only have the one. She and I are best friends, and have a special bond. I know I would have that bond with other children if I had any more, but I cherish what I have with her. We have all joked and vented about comments others make, and it makes me laugh. We are silly and wonderful. I like to be silly....so, I have now come up with a line to say to people when they tell me how lucky I am that I won't have a period anymore, and imagine the money I will save since I won't have to buy tampons or pads or midol anymore...I tell them that the water isn't always warm in the bathtub. "The grass isn't always greener" is too common for me, so I made up the other saying. It makes me giggle when I say it and they just look at me like I am already off my rocker. I asked my employees if they will still love me when I grow my beard and voice gets deeper...they just laugh. As I have said before, this surgery is no joking matter to me, but it helps me to cope with what is to come. Love you guys!

Did someone really ask you if it would grow back? I am a scientist, and that is apalling and unbelievable!

If anyone asks me if I feel hollow, I'm going to tell them that I had my Ipod inplanted in there so I won't have to carry it around anymore, and have the headphone cord coming out my belly button.

Really, where do such stupid thoughts come from? Don't hang around with these dopes! My goodness!
