Good Days

My goods are starting to out number my low days and I feel like myself again.  There is a tentative plan to help me get off my medication but I was told that I have to wait until Summer is in full-motion before I can talk about that again. Sunshine brings happiness, is what my doctor is leading to, I believe.  So, I'll be patient.

In the meantime, I've done a few things to help me feel better about me.  First, my doctor said that I need to start working out and I have to make it an appointment in my calendar and DO IT.  So, with that, I played around with a couple of ideas.  I thought that joining weight watchers would've been the best option because I've had success in the past, but I ended up tossing that idea out because it wasn't what my doctor said to do and I just wanted to sweat.

So, I went with a friend on a free weekend to Jazzercise and from there, I was hooked.  I went a few more times on the free weekends and then before too long, I became a member.  Let me tell you how awesome it is... IT'S AWESOME and while I may not look awesome doing it, I don't care.  I feel really great when I leave, I'm typically dripping in sweat and the next day, I always feel the burn.  It's been about a month and while I haven't lost a more than 3 pounds, I can see my body transforming.  It's a great feeling and I'm so happy that I did it!

Secondly, I bought some self tanner for my father-in-law's funeral because I didn't want to look so pale in the dress that I was wearing.  Can I tell you how much better that made me feel about my legs and myself in general?  Seriously, it was such a confidence booster!  I think everyone should use self tanner... such a cheap way to feel great about yourself.  Especially when it's 45 degrees outside!  Oh and I did happen to get water on my leg that dripped down to make a really nice streak but I didn't mind.

Lastly, I've been coloring my hair at home.  Getting it done at my salon is always nice, but in my ripe age of 30, I've realized that I don't have to do that to feel good about my hair.  Plus, since the majority of it is falling out, I'd rather just color what I have at home and wait for it to thicken up to get it done at the salon.  I do have an appointment to get it cut, but it's 6 months since my last one.  My hair will be out of control, but I don't mind because it looks really nice.

It's those sorts of things that are really helping me get back on track to feeling like myself more and more.  Seems silly and so cheap, but I'll do whatever works.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
