My hormones have ebbed. Oh, thankyougeezus. I know, once you get baby fever, it doesn’t really go away. But at least I can live without the symptoms for a while.
I feel like I should gush about all my problems – so you’ll understand why I feel like this whole baby making thing is such a difficult endeavor. Let’s see. The bipolar thing is pretty big. It’s been seven years since I was diagnosed. Seven years since I had to re-learn emotions; seven years since I my hair dryer talked to me; seven years since I had no hope. And it’s been seven years without episodes — because I faithfully take my lithium daily.
And the fertility part? I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). I apparently haven’t ovulated in YEARS. Years, people — let’s talk about the gigantic waste of money known as birth control. Ha! So, maybe the hormones aren’t completely at low tide.
