I’m on Day 9 of my LP (Luteal Phase). This is the time to be on edge because I don’t know how long my LP is. For a pregnancy to “stick” your LP needs to be at least 10 days long. Anything shorter and a woman will have trouble staying pregnant after she conceives. On average a woman’s LP lasts 12 – 14 days. On the plus side I’m certain my LP will be at least 10 days. At least my chart looks that way. Also, no impending sign of the dreaded period.
There’s a lot going on right now. It’s adding stress I don’t need nor want.
To start my friend is in agony and she’s hinting at harming herself. We’ve only been friends for a short time, so I don’t know if she’s serious or not. Basically her loser boyfriend, who’s been aloof the whole time I’ve known her, decided to go to Australia (instead of Japan) before Valentine’s Day and in addition to not telling her this, he lied about his whereabouts. Then he didn’t even have the balls to break up with her and said she should just break up with him. She’s super sad, but I don’t know how to help her. She’s definitely too good for him.
Second, at work today my awful coworker and I got into a fight because of a situation we disagreed about. Basically, she was wrong and is being stupid, and I am completely in the right. My former boss agrees with me and thinks she’s being unprofessional. That’s all I want to disclose about it now. However, I was infuriated and was crying and cussing (might have been PMS but I hope not). Then I felt awful (physically) afterward all congested and red eyed.
And finally, the icing on the shit cake is that my husband just came back from the doctor (after I kicked him out of the bed to go there) and drumroll please…he has the flu. The fucking flu! Brilliant. In Japan, if you have the flu, you can’t go to work. That’s right. A doctor writes you a note which loosely translated says stays stay home and don’t infect the general populace. Right now I’m slightly congested and have a sore throat and ear pain (thanks to flying while sick I’m afraid I’ll forever have ear pain every time I’m sick). I may just have a cold if anything at all. According to my daily temperature readings I’ve not got a fever, so that’s good news.
So yeah, this has been the stressful goings on recently, and to be honest I’d rather they were not going on at this time. Just a couple more days. I can do this. Breathe.
