The Estrogen Has Landed

And the z-pack antibiotics and the baby aspirin. No wonder I feel nauseated. The depot lupron did not give me hot flashes so much as extreme tiredness and headaches. It could have been worse. Hopefully now that I have started on the progynova and start ramping up the dosage, I will feel more lively.

Amy, my ray of Californian sunshine, did perk me up no end. From the giggles at her lack of clean underwear and the shrieks as Mr P scraped the wayward bat off the hood of the car under the full moon rising to the wolfing of the delicious Bangladeshi curries and the restrained consumption of only ONE bottle of natch, South African wine during her visit. It was good. We did the obligatory ancestral castle visit and saw the heilan coos and the yomping for miles and the lying around eating cheese and biscuits and roast red pepper hummus and falafel. Again, again!!

As soon as she left though, I plunged back into gloom and darkness. She took the sunlight with her and now there is only rain.

Somebody slap me.

*SLAP*

Did you feel that from way over here? It should have felt like a soft kiss to the cheek, actually.

That's just me wishing you a break in the clouds. I've been missing you.

Ahh.. the terrifying time of pre-cycling. I am with you and I am terrified too.

Here's hoping we are able to see the sun every now and then. Glad you had a nice visit with your friend.

Oh the joys of sunny Amy, I'm so glad you had such a good time together (and v jealous). Sorry to hear about the rain. Not long now til SA and the start of hope again. You can find a tiny ray of hope in there, can't you? Well, I will look for it for you. And don't forget, it's the drugs it's the drugs it's the drugs.

Oh, I'm so not looking forward to all the drugs, which just arrived today. Hope the weather clears soon.

I'm glad you had at least some sunshine! It's quite the scienc project you've got your body involved in, so it's no wonder you're not feeling fabulous. I hope you're feeling less gloomy and more lively very soon.

Wouldn't it be 'stop me?' stop me if you think that you've heard this one before.

Glad you had a good foodie time w/ Amy - what's the SA countdown now?

All I can say is: I hear you sister. I'm glad Amy was a ray of sunshine! Progynova was like a miracle drug to me after the depot shot of the lethal ginecrin. I thought I was pretty ok, mood-wise, but mister m said not so much pretty ok. I was relieved at the stopping of the flashes, but apparently the mood lifted as well. Hang in there.

Glad you had a great visit . . . wish I had some magic way for you to recapture the cheer.

Hang in there.

The estrogen will do it's thing, I have no doubts. And I will slap you silly if it will help.

You will be on your way very soon. I'm terribly jealous and wish I were going back with you. So I shall just have to live vicariously through you.

Oh my...castle-ing? That is one of my all time favorite things to do! And curries? I am soOOoOOoo jealous. It sounds like you two had a fabulous time! No guarantees that I can light up a place like Amy, but if you ever want a bit of California sunshine you just let me know and I'll be mounting a plane.

I'm a drinker, not a fighter.

Can I offer you a glass, to help cheer you up?
