Writers workshop... That time of the week where I bow to Kat's feet for relieving me of the task: What to write about today? Get in on the fun, head on over to Mama's Losin' It and check it out.
This week we had interesting topics to choose from. One of which was: 2.) Share with us something you made by hand. That was just too easy for me, so I took a different prompt.
1.) What's ailing you? Diagnose yourself with a syndrome.
Today I would like to talk a little about a newly acknowledge illness, B.M.I. syndrome. This affliction has been around for a long time, but doctors and psychologist are finally getting around to admitting it exist. I suspect it took them so long, because these fields are mostly dominated by men, and B.M.I. syndrome mostly affects women.
I am personally an expert in this syndrome, because I suffer from it myself. I want to bring awareness to this issue, and let other women know they are not alone. If you suffer from these symptoms, it is likely that you also have B.M.I. syndrome.
Exhaustion and excessive sleepiness
Unexplained weight gain or loss due to forgetting to eat and then stuffing the first thing you find in your mouth.
Forgetfulness. As in repeating to yourself, over and over, what you need to do when your done peeing, and still not doing it, because it slipped your mind.
Long term Amnesia of important dates and events.
Short term Amnesia, an inability to remember if you paid a certain bill or ate lunch.
Problems with coordination like walking into walls. Though it is assumed this is a result of the exhaustion.
Consumption of unusually large amounts of coffee or other caffeinated drinks.
Some patients may also suffer from more sever symptoms including:
Daily headaches making it hard to see straight.
Ulcers due to the amount of nsaids you take for your headaches.
An inability to get cartoon jingles out of your head.
Sever moodiness as a result not being able to watch your favorite TV show.
Other, considerably less affected patients may only exhibit mild symptoms.
Bags under eyes
Considering an hour of uninterrupted blog reading time as a vacation.
What does B.M.I. stand for? Why Busy Mommy Itis of course. B.M.I. is also commonly referred to as Mommy Brain. It is often mistaken for early onset Alzheimer. Extreme cases can mimic schizophrenia.
At this time, there is no known cure for B.M.I. The good news is that it is not a permanent ailment, as symptoms generally subside when your children leave for college or move out of the house. Unfortunately for some, by the time that happens, other ailments may have already started to develop. Such as dementia from old age.
