Waiting for Weekend

The boyfriend is going away on a weekend trip beginning tomorrow. His friends from work arranged an all-expense-paid trip to Bantayan Island, Cebu. It’s their birthday gift for him.

Lucky him!

I, on the other hand, have two more shifts before I call it a weekend. Two consecutive days off after two long weeks of split offs and going to work on my rest day. I am sooo looking forward to it. But what will I do this weekend?

I’m not sure yet, but I have a feeling that after this week, I’ll be back in fighting form. Maybe this feeling tired and moody (or is it broody?) is just hormonal. Perhaps PCOS-related. And because of that thought, I tried reading up a bit on this syndrome that I’ve got. I was trying to look for this gel or patch that a woman can stick to her skin and it sorta tames the hormones, or promotes balance. Was it testosterone gel? I saw an ad for one somewhere and I immediately thought of getting it if it was something that would help my PCOS. Good thing I wasn’t the impulsive buyer that I usually am.

High testosterone levels is what can actually happen with women who have PCOS, like me. It leads to acne, oily skin, hair loss (my current major issue!) and, wait for it, mood changes!

So I should stay away from those gels, or patches. It’s the opposite of what I need.

Hmmm. Maybe I should try the Juju Cleanse this weekend… I wonder how much that costs…
