Last week burst into action.
I found out I had a ovarian cyst.
Monday and Tuesday(aug 21st,22nd I would get random sharp pains. They hurt. A lot. But they only hit once a day. It was random enough for me to disregard them. I also started class that week so perhaps it was nerves. Wednesday morning I woke up to incredibly sore boobs. I mean a light breeze would hurt sore. That night as I was trying to study the material we went over in class those sharp pains started coming over and over and over. Now I was getting suspicious something was wrong. Trying to think about what would be causing this, it clicked. I have a frickin ovarian cyst. I was pretty certain. The pain was right where a ovary would be. I did a quick google search to see if I was right or wrong. The symptoms matched up and the IUD can cause those.
Thursday morning I went to class and during a pop quiz those pains came again. I'm not certain I did well on that stupid quiz. I called my doctors office to get a appointment and they had nothing until the following Thursday.
I spent the week just feeling like crap because all the hormones going crazy made me feel like I was pregnant. I peed on so many pregnancy tests. I didn't know the pain was it bursting. I thought it was a cyst starting. I didn't want to know what the bursting pain was going to be like. Little did I know that's what I was experiencing. I got them to move my appointment up to Wednesday(Aug 30th) because I was really starting to get fed up feeling this way. They did a ultrasound and nothing. NOTHING. I was so confused.
Then I spoke to my doctor. She said everything looks good, but that's probably because it had already burst and the evidence of the scene has been cleared away already.
Meanwhile my body is going insane with the hormones.
They had me do a pregnancy test there just to be sure because of my history.
We started a plan to switch birth controls because the benefits have officially been outweighed by the negative side effects.
Friday(Sept 1st) I had lost my mind. I was emotional at everything. Moana made me cry. This video of a 4 year old with no limbs helping put a pacifier in his newborn siblings mouth made me cry every time I thought about it, so about 5 times. Then feeling like I was losing my mind made my cry.
I really really really hate birth control. It's a necessary evil in my life. I'm hoping my next option works really well and doesn't make me go nuts.
Right as the morning sickness stomach went away, I caught Cole's cold.
It's been a really crappy couple weeks.
I really hate birth control.
But on the other side, the eclipse was really cool to see.
