So I haven’t been blogging for a while (April was my last blogging session) as I have been working hard and not had the time to update so I do apologise for that 🙂
What’s been happening over the past 4 months then? Lets separate them into sections so you can see.
Well I have got a job in a College teaching which is fantastic and I know this is what I want to do (It’s taken a while for me to decide where I fitted in and this is the right choice). I was working in several jobs which stopped me from seeing my family and friends yet again but once the job in the College came, I stopped the other roles as I knew that I needed to focus on my career and it has paid off! Hurrah!!!
Depression, Anxiety and Stress
I am happier than I have been in a while and this is down to the support from my family and friends. If they weren’t around and stood by me when things were bad then I wouldn’t have got through it. I know that it was a stage in my life where I was pushed way over my limit and I needed to give in for a while. There is nothing to be ashamed about if you have or are suffering with depression, anxiety and/or stress as it’s your body telling you that you have been strong for far too long and you need to rest and get some help. It’s hard to do but please tell someone how you are feeling if you need to 🙂
I am still struggling with my weight and I am coming to terms with the fact that I am not helping myself with the food choices that I have been making. I joined back Weight Watchers and have been referred to the dietetics department within the clinic I attend for fertility as my Fertility Specialist has realised that there is something I need support with here. I have been for my initial consultation and today I attended to see a dietician who explained exactly how my weight isn’t shifting and the type of plan I need to follow for my own body – Low Gi. I am in the process of reading up about this and what types of foods I am better having. I will be linked with this person for a while now to help me with my weight issue. I am also due to see the Physiotherapy department too so they can help with the physical side. I am so happy that I am receiving extra support. I just need to work with them and myself to become healthier.
So I am still far from being pregnant. I had a very large cycle of 10 months where nothing happened at all apart from being in pain. A scan was conducted the other week to see what changes may have happened and these results should be given tomorrow when we go to see our Fertility Specialist. I know the 1st thing will be ‘you need to lose weight’ which really annoys me as I can see for myself that I need to! I am hoping to get more answers to what and how I can work with my dodgy ovaries to help with the weight loss and possibly the chance of conceiving naturally. We will make a list of questions and treatments that could be done and see where we go. It’s getting a little tedious just to be told that I need to lose weight so we can have IVF. Surely there is something else! Only time will tell.
In other news
I’ve been looking through my bucket list and have crossed another few items off which is great! I feel a sense of achievement when I cross items off the list. Some people say that they are easy to achieve but when you are mad busy and don’t have a settled job (like I have now) then it’s fairly hard. Here’s to crossing more off in the future.
That’s it for now and as always, any comments will be replied to and thanks again for all of your support.
