So, here's a bit of tmi.  For the first time in many years I started birth control yesterday.  Not because we wouldn't welcome another child with open arms, that will never be the case I don't think.  But because the medications I am on to get ME right can seriousely harm a developing baby.  Any baby that comes into our family deserves A: to be as healthy as he or she can be and B: have a mother who has her issues under control.  nuff said.

So my midwife gave me the bill you hear about on tv, Seasonique or whatever it's called.  Hello 4 periods a year! I can handle that!  In the past the pill (as well as pregnancy) has kicked up my depression so we may have to play some more with my Prozac dose but I'm on a mission to find ME again and I think I'm taking the right steps to do it, and facing some of my fears in the process.

Good for you!! It sounds like you are doing a great job in finding yourself again. I usually give up after a couple of days! Keep up the good work.

iunderstand your reasoning. when grant went on chemo his oncologist told me the worst thing that could happen (besides the obvious) would be for me to get pregnant, as chemo would affect his sperm. i went and got the depo shot.. i hate depo but i needed to be sure.

i use the merina now.. its like a low dose of chemo i use it more for being able to avoid a regular aunt flow.. because when its that time of month i am literal agony.

i hope things start to look up for you soon, i think your an incredible mum and an amazing person as well.
