The morning I was 40 I woke up Fat and Blind!
The power of suggestion
The power of suggestion ,quite the motivator. When I went to the doctor to find out if I was pregnant I had to stop on the way home and buy maternity clothes as what I was wearing was suddenly three sizes too small.
Turning a certain age I was not ever alarmed or so I thought. I recall going to bed that night before my birthday reading a book that seemed to have very large print I woke up the next morning (of my 40th birthday) and complained to all that would listen that the back half of the book was in smaller print. I had to go that day to have my eyes examined where it was suggested I should just pick up a pair of "cheaters". Dang..My eyesight should be the first to go..I really couldn't wait to see so I could finish Scarlett the sequal to gone with the wind..
This same week I have to go for a physical where they gave me a shot for birth control they didn't ask or explain it they said we are giving you a shot of depo provera(sounded like a worm treatment for dogs!) They told me not to be alarmed if I didn't have a period it was not uncommon. What they should have said was there isn't a period of time you won't hemmorage!!! I had a period that lasted for two years I should have bought stock in the Tampax corporation to help keep funds in my pocket! I gained 11 lbs the first two weeks I had the shot.I blew right on up to 151 pounds you couldn't tell if I was going or coming I looked the same from all sides.
They did mention I could possibly gain a little weight.My husband was very kind and never said a thing.
