Hormones Out Of Whack

1.30.2013

Blogs are helpful. Let me tell you the many reasons why they are helpful.

  • You can make new friends. Blogger friends. That you may or may not ever actually see in real life. I am lucky enough to have met a handful since I live in Utah (aka. Blogger Capital of the World) but to all my friends that live in a different state, I wish us luck in meeting.
  • I always have someone to talk to. Either responding to a comment or leaving a comment.
  • Sometimes you get free stuff. Which is awesome.
  • My head is a lot more clear because everything I feel cluttered in there goes into a blog post... and then you have to try and decipher it.
  • You can learn a lot from other blogs. Cooking, crafting, fashion, makeup.... all sorts of things.
  • Self esteem boost. Whats up 600 followers that I don't even know but somehow you are reading all about my life... you are awesome.
  • And the final way... which brings me to the importance of my post... a blog can help you realize when your hormones need to be checked.
How did I know my hormones needed to be checked? Besides my insomnia, weight gain, mood swings, and headaches.... my blog helped me figure it out. How you ask? Because I used to be funny. I used to be put into any situation and I could make it funny. Whether it was getting my hair cut, getting an extremely awkward security check, reliving my dating past, or having a claw for a hand. All which are normal. I could make people laugh in my posts. Here. Let me give you an example of the comments I used to get:



That is right people. Even Gentri Lee thinks I am funny. Now these are the comments I get.
In case you didn't get it... that means nothing. Zero. Nada. The big goose egg. I get hardly any comments anymore. And I think it is because I haven't been writing funny things... that is what brought you all in the first time. And I don't write funny things because I am emotional. And why am I emotional? Well. Web MD told me I might need my hormones checked. So what did I do? I got my hormones checked. And my blog was right. My hormones were off balance. So here is to a few pills and hoping that I can get back to the women I once was. A huge shout out to all my followers and blogger friends and of course my blog. Because without all of you... I might not have known to get my hormones checked. Even though I probably would have because this weight gain thing (my insulin levels were off the chart) is CA-RAZY! And I am not liking having gained 20 pounds in the last 8 months.

Love,
Deidre

Yeeah you are actually funny :D I am impressed!! You are a true blogger :) This post helped a lot. The best thing as being a blogger is that you really get free items from fellows -no scam- and your fellows really listen to your words and somehow help you :)

Hun, I adore you and I'm still here! And if anything I thought this post was going down the pregnancy road, now that would be crazy! You know what will get you out of your funk? Dance! I bet that will help! xoxo

WHATEVER DEIDRE! (said with my fingers in the shape of a "W") I LOVE this blog! It's one of my favs! It's actually my fault... I am a bad commenter. If I have things to do, rather than coming back later and reading AND commenting, I just impatiently read. And don't comment. Rude, huh?
Anyway, I promise to do better. Not because I feel sorry for you. But because I LOVE getting comments. They are truly mood boosters and that whole "Do unto others..." saying comes to mind. PLUS.. I am only 2.5 hours away from you, so we're practically neighbors! ;) Hope you get to feeling better!!

Boo to being women with crazy hormones! I totally agree that you can figure out what's really going on inside of you through writing. I had to stop blogging for a year because I realized the same thing - I had just lost it. I wasn't funny or didn't have anything cool to blog about. However, please don't do that to us, keep blogging! I think you're great and I don't even really know you. :)
