I'm glad I started this thread
It's been on my mind for awhile now, actually. So, Jamie, your thread just encouraged me to do what I should have done awhile ago! Yay! I have missed a lot of the One Thread people, too -- but every single time I even try to read the One Thread, my mind just kicks up all this resistance and negative thinking my way.
Dani, more sex is a good thing
When I was deep in my depression this cycle, I had absolutely no sex drive at all -- very scary. I knew I was starting to come out of it when I had a sex drive last week, finally!
I can definitely relate to needing a solid place to "be" mentally. I need to remember that place is always within me. I've been having a lot of problems sleeping, and it mostly comes from not wanting to settle into that peaceful, solid place -- having real problems finding it, I guess.
Wow, Jamie, I hadn't known that about your working as a nuke. I can understand that fear a lot -- that's a scary thing, for your uterus to have been around!
Sara, I can totally relate to where you are -- I think that's where I am, too. It's a sort of limbo -- not sure where to go next. Yoga is one of the things I have let slip away from me, and I am hoping to get back to it soon.
BTW, here's the website I mentioned last night http://www.clearpassage.com/whatothersay.htm
It's about deep tissue massage and fertility (really, it's just an ad for the clinic in Florida that does this therapy, but I don't see what doing my own deep tissue massage could harm! I'm also thinking of getting some shiatsu or other deep tissue massage done.
So, it's been almost a week where I've been massaging my abdomen at night before bed. It is pretty relaxing (helps me get to sleep, actually) and has been having a good effect on my digestion. We'll see about the effects on my fertility.
