Around 12 AM EST January 13th I wrote my first real post in several months; but I titled it My Fibroids today January 13 2015. Of course today is Wednesday January 13th 2016. So, I’m a little embarrassed; but only a little. At least it gives me inspiration to write another post, which gets me a step closer to my goal to update this site a little bit more frequently than I have been. Then again hardly anyone reads my blog so I guess it doesn’t really matter one way or another how frequently I update.

The mid-west sky morning of Wednesday January 13th 2016

I woke up at 6:30AM this morning feeling a bit confused thanks to some convoluted dreams. In one of the dreams I was walking somewhere with one of my sisters. We were trying to get across a very busy road to try to make it to a bus stop to catch a special bus that was going to take us back to a church where we were attending an event. I had left the event with my husband and my son to go find another of my sisters to confront her over my husband’s claims that they had slept together. That whole scene was quite ridiculous. I found her in a tree that at first had been a balcony. She was on the balcony with a guy who seems like he might have been her old boyfriend. I shouted to her straight off upon arriving that my husband just told me the two of them had *&^&ed. So she left the balcony and came down to our level. It was at that point she was in the tree, but it had seemed she’d always been in the tree and there had never been a balcony involved. Maybe I’m mixing up scenes from different dreams. But anyway, she denied my husband’s claim, and I started acting like I had never believed my husband in the first place and had only forced him to come and make the claim to her face in order to show him up as a liar.

Anyway, we left from that encounter and started heading back to where we’d come from; but suddenly it wasn’t my husband and my son who were with me. It was another of my sisters, and we were walking trying to find a bus stop. As we were walking, we spotted yet another of my sisters. She was walking with a group of her friends. She didn’t notice us so we called out to her and stopped to say hello. She was speaking to us in French. It’s not clear if we understood her or not. That part of the dream was interesting because I do have a sister who lives in Paris, so maybe that’s where I had traveled in the sleep realm because there was nothing familiar about the location where my sister and I were walking. My sister introduced us to her friends and then we continued on our way; but at some point the sister I was walking with disappeared. I kept looking around calling out to her but there was no sign of her anywhere. I had no idea where I was and how to catch the bus to get to where I needed to be. I was in a panic, but I kept on walking in the direction where I thought the bus should be. I was walking while looking for my sister and looking out for the bus at the same time. I came to a street that was so busy with traffic and so wide that I was terrified to cross it and had no idea what I was going to do. I stood there wishing and hoping my sister would appear, and she did. But it wasn’t really my sister. It was a wished upon figure–someone I had made appear in the dream at that point (probably using my conscious mind). She said she had stepped into a store to buy something and she figured I would have waited outside.

That’s all I can remember from that bizarre dream.

My goals for today are to maintain my calm, eat well, get an adequate amount of exercise and check off as many items as possible off my to-do work list.

Hope you have an accomplished and happy day.

My name is Monica. I have fibroids. My fibroids are large enough that they have transformed my figure into something I am still trying to learn how to live with. In the meantime while I try to learn how to live with my fibroids I am also trying every possible method I can find to try to shrink them naturally because I am afraid of the idea of a hysterectomy. I lived with fibroids from 2007 - 2016. I started documenting my experiences on this blog in 2012. On March 7th 2016 I had a hysterectomy out of concern that I might have ovarian cancer. It did not turn out that I had ovarian cancer. The cancer scare forced the hysterectomy I was trying to avoid, and so, I became fibroid free as of March 7th 2016. I will try to keep this blog up and running in the hope that it will be of some use to others going through what I went through.
