a bit too personal right now..

We're moving soon and it's been several anxiety filled days and weeks leading up to this. I'm assuming this is what's causing both me and the cats to be off. Alexander has been throwing up on things or near things when I pack stuff up or move stuff. He pooped in one my canvas recycling bags (a Target shopping bag fwiw)

While I haven't taken to pooping in bags,LMAO.. my system is off.. I've been keeping track and I'm pretty regular like clockwork.. but when the back & knee pain/swelling showed up on the 7th.. not the 17th and certain "relatives" showed on the 11th.. I knew something was wrong. Suffice to say I'm still having issues. This is reminiscent of the early 2000's when I was having Dysmenorrhea and Menorrhagia due to what I later found out to be endometriosis and tubal blockage.. Yeah I didn't want to go here..

I was hoping I wouldn't have to talk about how being female affects how I do on Plan. I usually have a 2 pound change every month and it goes away.. Four pounds is a bit excessive.. I know it has a lot to do with stress, my current health and the 2 Fresh & Easy pound plus milk chocolate bars I've been nibbling on and the multiple cheeseburgers I've been devouring off & on over the past week. =(

Since the stress and worry over the cats isn't going to abate til after everyone and everything is safely moved, I can't help but wonder if I shouldn't just give myself a 5lb allowance and start this all over again the beginning of April?? *sigh* And it goes without saying that if I have 'issues' next month I will certainly get myself to a doctor!
