All Over the Board

So….a short update and then on to other things.  We’re in that “waiting to start a cycle” phase.  Which means I’ve been leaving daily messages for the nurse at the clinic to make sure I have all my meds (which I don’t) and trying to find out why the insurance company isn’t calling me to set up delivery.

In the meantime, I decided not to take the plethora of antibiotics that Dr. Ambitious prescribed.  In part because both the pharmacist here and Dr. Celebirty, my old RE, said that it was overkill and would only make me sick.  And in part because I was falling into the 1-3% of people who react to the Floxin with sleep disturbances.  One night of waking up every 2 hours was enough to get me over taking that one.

I did the 3-day course for yeast but have decided to let the others go.  I’m not going to get into it with Dr. Ambitious but I’m going to follow Dr. Celebrity’s instruction that we’re always filled with bacteria of some sort and that it’s not healthy to try and get rid of all of it.


Even though I’ve been fairly numb and removed from the whole infertility thing for the past few months, I realized that all of those feelings are still lurking under the surface.  This article from the New York Times is one of the best I’ve read lately and I thought I’d share it.


And on to something totally fun and trivial.

Mrs. X at The Young and Infertile posted a fun music meme that I thought I’d try.

The rules:
A.) Go to musicoutfitters.com
B.) Enter the year you graduated from high school in the search function and get the list of 100 most popular songs of that year.
C.) Bold the songs you like, strike through the ones you REALLY hate.

I graduated in 1983.  By then I was heavily into alternative “new wave” so a lot of what I was listening to wasn’t a top 100 hit.  Enough said! 🙂
