I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Rest of 4/Day 5

I came home early yesterday with an awful headache and scratchy throat. I had headaches pretty constantly the past few weeks...even before the shots. I have a history of headaches associated with my neck/shoulder muscles. May be time to go back and see the Manual Therapy Associates. They did an awesome job. I took some tylenol and sudaphed and napped for most of the afternoon. The headache seemed to ease up, but came roaring back in the PM. That one was hurting in my sinus cavity and from my right shoulder up the back of my head. No pleasant.

Oh, I also had some leg cramping yesterday. Similar to when I am getting my period/am on my period. It'll hurt right behind my knee, where my vein is. Yesterday it extended up my leg (on and off, no constant) to my inner thigh. I will definitely keep a watch on that.

Today has been good so far. Before the shots, I was having issues with my eyes-like, focusing on things. Very hard to describe. For a while I was kind of dizzy with it, but, not anymore. ANYWAY, this "visual disturbance" is back today..kinda lightly. I am way overdue for a Dr.'s appointment, wondering if it is my contacts? My eyes are always changing. Will keep tabs on this as well.

After eating my stomach cramps a bit, and, when I have a bowel movement. There is colon involvement (not inside, but, on the outside) with my endometriosis.

I found a new blog today, another young lady journaling her experience with Lupron. I will tab her blog link on the right.

Such a rainy day here today. I think my husband and I are going to go for some dinner and to see a movie.

I am not sure if I have blogged about this, but, I've been making some dietary changes to help with my ingestion of estrogen and unecessary hormones. Obviously I cannot transform my habits overnight, but, just making some small changes along the way. I am trying to cut out non-organic dairy and meats from my diet. Pretty hard, and, can't do it everyday, but, I think even small changes along the way can make a difference. Also trying to lessen our use of plastics (drinking bottles, containers when reheating foods or putting away hot foods), and I got a new water bottle-a Sigg for more information. ALSO, we are starting to use a home delivery service here in town for our veggies. It helps support our local farmers, and, it's all organic. And, really pretty convenient. We just got our first shipment this week (Thursday). It's called Absolute Organics.
