…and it's wonderful!

Dearies, I must share this joy!

Suddenly, I'm as energetic and excited about everything as when I was 19. My opinions are important enough to voice and defend. I am inspired to write things, and I actually doodle– I may even resume drawing! I sing in the car, and all those songs I had forgotten are back, and they want an audience. I was dreading this research-intensive semester but now I know I can kick academic butt, because information *sticks* now. It just feels like everything is brighter and better. And I want to share this happiness with everyone I hold dear, especially you, VPers, because you've all been helpful, supportive, caring people who've gotten me through some scary times.

I hope this lasts 🙂

    Oh, that’s awesome! Most HBC can cause or contribute to depression in up to 10% of their users – sounds like that might have been what was going on for you? In any case, it is fab that you are feeling up to kicking arse again! Long may it continue.

    I was on Lutera, generic for Alesse for the past 2 years. Before I was on Aviane which is another generic for Alesse, just a different generic from a different pharmacy.

    YES! Me too!!

    YAY for au-naturale and YAY for research (1 month away from submitting my thesis…)

    I’ve been having some interesting hormonal re-balances over the past 8 months, but I’m happy to be back to my “old” self now (finally). I hope it lasts for you too!!!!
