See? I don't write for 4 days and I become a writing machine.
Health - Got a copy of my blood work I had a week or so ago. We put me on iron supplements because my iron was a little low, for 3 months. My ferritin only came up 5 points. Does this seem right? Anyone know about iron levels? My B12 has been getting lower with each blood test; even with taking iron. My WBC has dropped and it's also on the low side. So... I don't know what this all means, but I'm not sure I like it. I'm a little confused, really.
Gurl stuff - I stopped my usage of 'the pill' Sunday. When I went to fill a prescription today for meds for my IBS, I didn't fill for my birth control. And y'know what? It was kinda nice. Liberating, almost. Not to say it isn't a little scary. Not to have that freedom from a wild night of going bareback is a little daunting, but it just means I'm going to be most selective in my future partner(s) (which was part of the point of doing this, amongst others). I won't be shoving hormones into my body on a daily basis anymore; that's nice, too. My body will be taking back over in its natural cycle (not just monthly cycle, but menopause will come sooner, as it's delayed with women on the pill). Perhaps it'll get rid of the crazies, or maybe I'll drop a few pounds or curb my chance of cancer. Hmm... I wonder if I'll still have that weekly craving for chocolate :)
Hey, look at that, I'm growing up ;)
