I think I might have kicked Evil Crazy Bitch (ECB) to the curb! Well, I didn’t do it. The Vivelle Dot seems to be doing it. In fact, I’m hesitant to even “say” this aloud, but I might feel even better than I did before this whole thing! When I wrote yesterday, it had been about 18 hours on the patch. By 24 hours, I felt like a new me. Some of it was probably the adrenaline rush I get before teaching or giving a presentation at work, and then the endorphin rush I get when it goes well. But by the time I got home from work last night, I felt pretty awesome. I was in a good enough mood to return phone calls I’d been avoiding. My mom said something frustrating on the phone, and I just ignored it. My husband did two annoying things, and I just went on playing with our son. The little guy and I ran around in circles on the grass barefoot, chasing each other, falling down on purpose, lots of tickling and unabashed toddler belly laughs – I think someone should have filmed it as a commercial for estrogen patches.
So, I don’t want to jinx myself, but I thought I should report that I do feel pretty good!
Today I will see the hormone specialist to check in with her. And, I will also see the surgeon this afternoon. I plan to ask him about that strange pathology report as well as some of my physical symptoms (uncomfortable twinges when goin’ #1 and unable to ‘push’ when goin’ #2).
