Today's Public Service Announcement goes out to all the people that think they're funny when really, they're just mean.
I had a hysterectomy.
When I was 26.
And I do hormone replacement therapy, not because of the uterus thing, but because I have an autoimmune disease that freaked the hell out because of my pregnancies.
So, every day, I take some little pills that make me feel like a regular person.
What does a regular person feel like?
Well, about 15 years ago when I used to be one, I remember that I didn't get headaches, I didn't throw up every day, and my feet weren't numb all the time.
I didn't have hot flashes, my hair didn't fall out in droves, and I used to really enjoy summertime.
You can make fun of my schedule all you want, but if my dosage is off by as much as 20 minutes, I feel like I'm going to die.
So yes, I throw up. Every day. And ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, it sounds like morning sickness!
And when you joke about how I must be pregnant, even though you know full well that that possibility slammed the door in my face when I was 26, I get offended.
Because it's not funny, and you're not cute, and I would love to feel normal for just one freaking day.
So thanks so much, and I just wanted to tell you that you're mean.
And that is today's public service announcement.
