Something isn't right
As a reporter, I am responsible for being an expert on a variety of things such as board of elections, town boards and community colleges.
Basically, I know a little about a lot of things. But there are two things I know well—ED and my body.
For years, I focused on my depriving my body of its most basic need. And because I focused so singularly on this, I know my body. I know when things are out of sort with me.
I apologize in advance for the TMI of this post.
For the past few months, I have noticed that my period (or girl fun time as I call it) has been getting longer and more painful. Plus, I am always tired. I can get eight hours of sleep and still be exhausted. It has gotten to the point that I have started to take a 20 minute nap at lunchtime.
Another thing I have noticed is that I always feel full now. I know when I wake up at 6 a.m. that I am not full. I can’t even finish a meal without feeling like I am going to pop.
Maybe I am overreacting but something isn’t right.
I know my body. I have a doctor’s appointment on Dec. 4. Hopefully, there is a reasonable explanation but something is not quite right. And I intend to figure out what's wrong.

2. No meetings to cover tonight!
3. Election stuff is OVER!!
