As many of you know, I have Endometriosis and Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (on top of everything else! Fun!).
I’m allowed to take my Demulen 30 (for the Endo) and Cyproterone (Anti-androgens for my PMDD and Acne) for three months in a row, and then I have to stop until a period shows up before I’m allowed to start the pills again.
I stopped the pills about 2.5 weeks ago and it has been a nightmare. My Endometriosis pains are the worst that they’ve EVER been, my mood is all over the place, hormonal migraines are taking me down, and despite all of the misery, my period REFUSES to start.
I was at the point where I was actually crying and begging for my pills back and to forget following the doctor’s orders, but I live with my mom (who is a pharmacist), who is holding out in favor of following the rules. It’s probably the right decision, I just can’t believe how much these pills have been helping me over the last few months! I may still be a mess in a million ways, but those pills had managed to get a few very important issues under control and I miss them!!
Cross your fingers for me that I can get them back sooner rather than later…I’m not coping so well with it all!
I love this picture and this film! [Moonrise Kingdom]
