PMS

I must have had mild PMS before my daughter was born, but I had not paid attention to it much so I was not sure about that.

After my daughter was born, my PMS was getting worse. Short of breath, tiredness and bad mood were so common to me.

Before period, my temper was getting very bad and very bad. Sometimes, I was so much close to lose control. Because of that, I went to see my family doctor in Australian. I did not say how bad I was, she began to talk about how bad it could be, like before the period, you just want to leave your husband, you felt so bad about him and so on.

I was thinking, oh my goodness, how could she know so much details?

What she was talking about was very much like me. Obviously, I was not the only one who felt like that.

She suggested that I should take a kind of tablet made of natural herb, called Evening Primrose Oil. This tablet is supposed to be good for women who have PMS.

I did and then I felt like a little out of control, just want to sing and behave like somebody in sane. I stopped.

Later, we came to Sweden. PMS did not get better. But one thing I noticed was that before period, I was so easy to get irritated by my husband who had been aware for some time. He called it red light time and he had to be cautious. After the period, I felt so lucky to have him; he is so charming and I love him so much.

Nearly every month it happened like that, which made me think of the reason behind.

It must be something that led to how I felt about my husband. Then what is it?

The key point to be healthy

Do not spend too much time in finding out what you eat can help you to be healthy any more. It would not work definitely.

What you should care is whether your body has enough energy or not, which is the key point to be healthy.

In order that your body has enough energy to function well, the most important thing you have to do is to sleep in right time.

You must think that I am talking rubbish because you could not sleep in the first place. In that case, you have to find out the reason why you cannot go to sleep.

If you have problem in your stomach system, it is difficult to go to sleep. If your heart does not feel well, it is hard to go to sleep, too. There are other reasons, as well.

Everyone has problem and we are all different. Pay attention to your body and it will not be that difficult to know your reason of sleeping disorder.

Doctor uncle Six

In my close relatives, there were three and half doctors. Two uncles in my father side , one was conventional medicine doctor, I called him uncle Six and one was Chinese medicine doctor, I called him uncle One.

Uncle Six did very well in medical school and He had worked in a state owned company until Chinese economic reform began. Then he opened his own practical clinic. He found that he had diabetes in his late thirties.

In his last few years, he went to Chinese doctors to seek help. I still remember that he came to my family and went to a Chinese doctor in another province with my mother because my mother had seen this doctor for a while for a lump in her breast.

My mother’s lump was gone with this doctors’ herb medicine and uncle Six heard that.

He wanted to see this doctor, too because insulin could not help him anymore. It was from him that I heard the word insulin for the first time. That was long time ago.

Anyway, this Chinese doctor did not keep him long. He died of diabetes at age of 42 in 1981.
