Russian Roulette

good vs. bad news. Which do you want first? I choose bad:

Bad news:
--Apparently I've been playing a little game called Russian Roulette. Instead of bullets, I've been playing with eggs. Eggs that could become fertile and result in a baby. That's right, my doctor informed me yesterday she's pretty sure that I've been ovulating on the birth control I'm on. Yowzers. I was on it for 14 months.. I'm so glad that she caught it and even more glad I didn't get knocked up like the rest of the world around me is. Needless to say, I changed birth controls

--The doc suspects endometriosis, but can't tell unless she goes in surgically. I'm trying a new birth control for 2 months (and of course insurance doesn't cover it!) and if that doesn't work I have to take a hormone that puts your body into a non permanent menopause. I'm not at all interested in menopause at 23.

Good news:
-- I got a raise. Thank God. Plus, my boss encouraged overtime so I can make even more (Hello, time and a half!!). It's only 50 cents on the hour, but after seeing a lot of my company is getting laid off because of underperformace and budget, I'm happy. I didn't think I'd get anything.

-- I'm applying for my dream job. It's within my company, so if I don't get it, I still have this job to fall back on! Plus, my boss is really pulling for me to get it. I lack the experience needed, but he said if I don't get it this time that he'll start giving me things that deal with that aspect of the company to gain the experience I need. Plus, he said I would be compensated for any extra work I would be doing for experience. If it means working more and longer (and occasional Saturdays), I wouldn't mind; I know I would be happier with my life. This has been the job of my dreams for as long as I can remember.

Wish me luck, send me good vibes, pray for me, whatever. Just send some good thoughts my way for this job. I'll really need it since I lack the experience. I'll let you know how it goes during the interview. I assume it will be next week, but who knows.

IDK, My BFF Rose??

Ooh, that ovulating without warning is scary. Thankfully I am married and hubby is fixed so not an issue for me now, but wow, thinking it could have happened in the past make my uterus quake with fear!

Good luck with the job.

Hey girl! Okay since I have some experience with endometriosis, I must say that you should SERIOUSLY think about it if they tell you to take the hormone that puts you into pre menopause. I would even consider surgery before doing that. I've never tried the hormones (other than birth control,) but I heard the side effects were TERRIBLE. My doctor wanted that to be my last resort. Like I said, someone else may have another opinion, but I've read lots of bad things..

I want to play! Gosh...

Cheryl said...

Oh my, I can't think of anything worst than being knocked up, and not wanting to be.

Sending you lots of luck. I hope that you get your dream job! x
