Almost over

Well, this past weekend was unpleasant but not unbearable. Friday night was awful and I'm still feeling some cramping. And I'm still bleeding but that's lessened significantly. The first was more blood than I've seen ever plus a nice bout of throwing up.

I don't regret my decision but I'm starting to wonder if I'm a little emotionally disconnected from everything. I got the impression at the clinic that I'm supposed to be very conflicted and broken up about everything. Or maybe I was just annoyed at being called 'sweetie' by all of the staff.

Overall, biological messiness aside, the experience was as positive as it could be. The clinic staff were nice and explained everything thoroughly. I was even given pain medication though I think I should have opted for Percacet rather than Tylenol 3.

I found out I was actually 6 weeks along rather than 3 which was disconcerting.

I feel very disjointed right now, probably due to the pain meds and the overall cabin fever-ness. I'm supposed to stay off of my feet for awhile and avoid vigorous activity. Of course, vigorous activity is part of my job so I'm off for today. I have a hard time with enforced rest.

Thank you for all of your support. It made this whole experience so much more bearable.

You process things in your own way and don't let anyone make you feel badly about how broken up you may or may not seem to others. You take care of you my dear.

And I agree, I would have been annoyed at being called 'sweetie' by all the staff too, but I guess they meant well. At least they were nice.

Don't push yourself to go back to work. Take the time your body is telling you that you need.
