leaping into my future

It’s been a while since I’ve last blogged. I thought I would give a little update as to where I am with my treatments — and in life. I’ve been taking a few leaps into my future. I’ll start with good news — I passed my real estate license exam. I’m so excited and relieved because it was sooo hard. Right now I’m interviewing with potential brokers. It’s an interesting flip of a situation — as a salesperson you bring money to the brokers so they want you. It’s fun being wooed. So, it’s really up to me who I want to work for.

As for my fertility, I mentioned that we were taking a break and that’s exactly what we did. I needed it. I needed to get back to myself. I really feel like a lost myself during December. The whole process of shots, hormones, blood tests & ultrasounds just didn’t seem right to me. I’m not saying that I won’t go back to my RE but I’m just not ready to yet.

I’ve been doing acupuncture for the past three weeks, and for a person that hates needles, it’s been very interesting. I already feel relaxed and healthy. She’s been giving me these chinese herbs to make teas with — and even though they are the worst tasting and the smelliest things in the universe — I feel a positive difference in my body.

If anything, this process has been more relaxing and regulating for me. I love it and I look forward to my visits every week. I can’t explain it but I feel calm & empowered after each session. Not only that, but I feel like my acupuncturist really listens to me. I didn’t get that with my RE at all. He was always busy and when I talked to the nurse  I felt like she was hurried as well. I felt like Jeremy and I were going through it alone — with no support.

So, that’s my update. Moving forward I will blog about my experience with acupuncture. I’m going to try very hard to keep grounded and not get too obsessed with this process, but I think it will be helpful for me — and hopefully someone else. I’ve found solace in reading other blogs and I hope that someone else can find it here too.
