Cyster Talk: Herb Pharm Black Cohosh

It's no secret, but I don't really talk about it. I have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, (PCOS). Infertility among early 30 somethings is still quite taboo. I can name at least 4-5 women on my Facebook friends list who suffer from PCOS, and NONE of them will strike a connection on the subject. We may casually talk about it, but then it fizzles. I don't broadcast my personal bizz, but the PCOS life can be a lonely one... So, I just completed a 134 day cycle.

134 day cycle.
Yes, you read that right.
Almost 4 cycles with no period.

I went to the local Natural Foods store in hopes of taking a "Fertility Shot" they had advertised outside. Herb Pharm is a brand that is difficult to get in a store, and I needed it pronto and couldn't wait for shipping. I eyed it on the counter as the man made my "Fertility Shot", which I have no idea what the hell was in it! I purchased it for $15, and took it immediately! I took a dropper full 3 times a day for 12 days straight and wah-lah!

Ladies we have a period!
Cramps? Woo hoo!

Parsley tea usually helps me, but even that wasn't working. I am happy to say and report that this tincture worked. Not just the tincture itself, but I really believe it is the brand. I love Herb Pharm, it is really good quality stuff. If you're suffering from Amenorrhea before you run to Black Cohosh do your due diligence with research, or ask your doctor. 

It made me loopy.
Yes, loopy!
Happy one minute
Sad the next minute.
Angry to the max the next minute.
Back to happy.

This will definitely be my go-to, and I am hoping it will work just as effectively. It's the Holiday season so I am spoiling myself and getting herbs and tinctures to help manage my PCOS. I will be reviewing once they come in the mail =)

Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.

I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?
