Talking about myself

One of my favourite bloggers is running a week-long course in how to blog about yourself. I’m about to demonstrate why that course is necessary, but I’m not signing up for it. Because I have enough to do without signing up for additional courses. There are many ways my blog could improve, and I am aware of a lot of them. Clearly I don’t yet have the drive to actually *do* them…

Those of you who have known me for a long time will know that sometimes I have… issues with PMS. This is one of the side-effects of a slight  hormonal balance caused by having polycystic ovaries which itself is the reason why Lily isn’t 5 years older than she is.

I recently changed my means of contraception from normal contraceptive pill to a mirena IUS. I’m loving the not having to take a pill every day which I’ve done 21/28 days since I was 18. My body is still adjusting to the change, though. I’m told that this is a good system for levelling out your hormones, often results in little or no period action, and has been recommended by several folks for PCO. I’m looking forward to when things have levelled off…

The doctor who installed it had no bedside manner *at ALL* and made me feel like a silly teenager who was choosing to change contraception on a whim. I’m not looking forward to going back for the 6 week check I have to have.

I don't want to go!

Plus, today I’ve been a hormonal paranoid wreck with several out-of-body-who-is-this-madwoman conversations. Luckily I have the day off tomorrow and will be chugging the homeopathic placebos if I’m still a mess by Tuesday, but today, it’s all feeling a bit too much like an effort.

Thank you for listening – normal service should hopefully resume before too long!!
