oh how i love my Provera

Thursday, April 24, 2008

problem: AF has been here since jan. 22 (more of heavy breakthru bleeding). i am beginning to consider buying shares of Playtex...and you should, too; bet i could single handily boost your portfolio.

solution: i finally called the dr back about my never ending drip...and i start Provera (progesterone) today for 10 days. but if the drain doesn't stop leaking after 5 days, i'm supposed to call and let them know and come in for an ultrasound and blood work...again. (just so y'all don't think i'm a glutton for punishment and misery...i did call the dr back in early march...we decided i'd go back on the Met (blech) and it should work itself out. not so much; nothing in my life ever "works itself out".)

the funny thing about all of this is: i normally take Provera to start AF and now i'm taking it to end the damn thing! irony at it's fullest.

i'll be OOT next week, as i'm going on a business trip to Arizona. & if my clingy friend is still lingering around (and i suspect she will be), the dr will have to wait.

p.s. if ONE more person tells me i just need "to relax & it'll happen", i am going to beat them senseless! seriously?!? i think i need to dedicate an entire post to the s-t-u-p-i-d things ppl say thinking they're being helpful. God bless them...b/c i just want to hurt 'em!

{{HUGS}} Dana!

Anyone who thinks that the "Relax" comment is helpful has obviously never dealt with Infertility. I can't remember who posted about it recently - or where I read it - but someone was talking about how hurtful that comment was. They said that it shows that IF isn't thought of as being an illness and until people realize that it is the feeling will never change. The next time someone says that to me I'm going to ask them if they'd say "You know, maybe if you just relax your cancer will go away!"

Hang in there! I hope that they can figure out soon why the "Witch" (AF) isn't going away!

Love you!
