I guess I have a vent. Today, after much poking and prodding, I found out I have PCOS. (Well they're pretty sure, although right now it's all based on an ultrasound) It makes me feel really stupid for thinking that my problems were just caused by stopping bcp. Especially since I thought I might have been pregnant a year ago. (I freaked out about a possible unplanned pregnancy for nothing, but I guess it did make me realize that a pregnancy right now wouldn't be the end of the world. It's also how I found jm.)
I also hate that my co-worker was more concerned about clocking out on time than caring about how I felt. I'd like to know how she'd feel after everything they did. If she didn't care she shouldn't have asked. (I arrived ten minutes before she was scheduled to leave. She knew I might come in late and didn't want me to find someone else to work for me, so I don't feel very bad.)
Even though I know lots of women concieve with PCOS it still makes me feel defective, like suddenly my fertility button has been switched to off. It doesn't help that my mom said maybe my body was just trying to tell me something and that there are plenty of kids to adopt. I know she's trying to be helpful, but it doesn't make me feel any better.
Plus I've missed a lot of school because I'm afraid to leave the house for fear of flooding. I suppose I could talk to my professors about it but I don't want to do that, even if it would stop them from thinking I'm just another student who doesn't care.
Oh Elena... I am so sorry. I'll be thinking of you!
My whine? I was so sick yesterday I wasn't able to do my ritual, and I had to go the doctor and get a shot in the rear. I was told I had a mild case of the flu... and Joshua is sick with the same thing. We took him to the doctor today and she told us the same thing. I hate colds!!!!
