Well since the middle of July I've been on bcp non stop. I must admit, it's not as wonderful as I had figured it would probably be. The hormonal headaches and non-stop cramps (while not severe) have been uncomfortable. But, looking at the craziness I've heard others talk about on lu.pron, I really have very few complaints. My blood pressure was through the roof when I saw my doctor in August. He went as far as to say that he may have to take me off the bcp if my blood pressure wasn't under control. I must admit, I've been taking every day and it's been much more normal 110/76 is about where I'm usually at. Sometimes its lots lower than that even. Finally, I've gained almost all of the weight back that I lost last year. I really need some motivation! Hopefully I can find some soon!
In other news, I'm also trying to find some motivation and the time to get back to blogging more. John's taking two classes this semester (english and educational psych.) which require a lot of writing. I'm trying to go through the process to become a national board certified teacher (read a hundred typed pages of me analyzing myself and every decision I make throughout 3 different lessons/units with supporting artifacts and documentation and video). So needless to say, the computer is often used, but not so much for blogging, OBVIOUSLY!
I vow to attempt to be better. I'm still reading all of your blogs and I'm on twitter to check in every so often. I miss the community you all helped me create here. I don't want to loose it. Stick around until April 1 when all my national board stuff has to be turned in, okay!
