"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

The Bitch is Back...with a vengeance

It only (haha...nothing only about it) took 5 months for my cycles to fully return to normal after getting my Mirena IUD out. Yay me...NOT! That means I'm back to bleeding like the proverbial stuck pig once a month. Guess its nice though to know my cycles are still like clockwork and I'm ovulating right when I should be.

I wish I had more or better or even different news on the baby making front but it ain't so. Life has conspired against us so far. We've been too busy trying to get Vic's diabetes regulated to worry too much about baby making. Did you know people with *Type 2 diabetes can convert and become Type 1 diabetics? I wasn't really aware of that but that's what happened to Vic. It explains why all of a sudden his meds weren't doing what they should do. Oral meds for Type 2 diabetics are designed to work with the insulin your body produces (but that you are resistant to) and, all of a sudden, he wasn't making insulin anymore. Blood sugar that is yo-yoing all over the place has a tendency to wear you out physically and mentally. I hope it stabilizes soon.

*Endocrinologists don't even use the terms Type 1 or Type 2 anymore. They just refer to insulin dependent and insulin resistant diabetics.

I didn't know that about diabetes. I hope Vic's situation is stabilized soon! YAY for your regular cycles and boooooo to the monthly bleeding.

Yep, you are right. Does this mean Vic is now injecting himself daily? That sucks! If you must inject, I am a big fan of long-acting Lantus...
