Fun with Insomnia

I stole this from Sleep Goblin...or from DS via Sleep Goblin...

It's a smelly robot!

I've been up since 4 a.m. and I'm feeling slightly pensive. The 'basket case' comment in previous entry relates to the fact that birth control is evil, evil stuff. Obviously my body is rejecting the great heaping mounds of extra hormones I'm trying to feed it every night, because it's making me insane. I have very little control over the things I say lately, which is not good. I've been somewhat depressed (part of it due to missing B. so much) and anxious. Also, I've had a lot of problems health-wise since I started taking them. Headaches, nausea, and oh! yeah, Insomnia. Plus, it makes me mean.

So no more of that! I'm going to try the Nuva-ring thingie. I hear it feels...odd to say the least but it's all localized hormones, so it will be worth it to me to not be fucking CRAZY. When I start blathering about demons in my toilet, maybe you guys should just go ahead and call my mother, okay?

i hated birth control. also, i gained weight, which "they" say shouldn't be that big a problem anymore. *shrug* i've been thinking about that little flexible ring, too. but also, i'm poor and don't like to spend money on myself.

... then again, i don't think i'd want to spend money on a baby, so maybe that's the plus.

hormones totally suck teabags.

Check with your local health department to see if you can get it there. The state pays for my family planning (I'm just that poor!) and I believe I can get it for free.

what about the pull-out method? that's, like, safe, right? ;)

omigod, Kimberlina you crack me up.

Beth: Try the patch. I've been using it for about a year, now, with none of the icky side effects of the pill. The ring is wierd...you feel it in you when you're doing the deed.

Besides, I like smacking the sticker on my ass. It's lovely.
Being a chick can totally blow,can't it?
