TGIF

TGIF! I get to start progesterone again tonight! Woot!

The eight days without weren't as bad as it was last time. Thank God. Last time was horrible.

Now I'm afraid I won't feel good on progesterone. It's silly, but I keep waiting for the misery to start.

I feel superstitious about it. Like I should be throwing salt over my shoulder, knocking on wood, dancing naked around an oak tree under a full moon etc...

Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

  1. I looove when you digress into proposed rituals. So hilarious and it's been majorly missing in my life before I met you.

  2. I was on birth control pills for 1.5 years to treat abnormal uterus lining. The treatment was supposed to last longer but I could not sleep, had anxiety attacks, had to stop the pills. After stopping, I had many symptoms. My personal understanding, backed by what i read, is that progesterone also suppresses your HPA. Progesterone is the pre-cursor of cortisol, the very hormone HC or prednisone is suppressing.
