- The simple realization that last week/weekend I was PMSing. I don't get major PMS or anything, but the one and only "symptom" I tend to have is an utter, depressed meltdown if something sad happens. I'm not sad every month, typically, but I am easily set off in that week leading up to my period and can spiral downward quickly. Not to say that those feelings weren't real, but it helps me to see the effect that may have had on me and gives a little perspective. Hmm...
- It's probably not a good idea to try to make a huge decision (such as whether or not to do IVF) while in said PMS state and also facing the devastation of a 4th IUI failure.
- Thanks to a recommendation by my friend Melody, I ordered the book Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God by Dallas Willard. I'm excited to read this and hope God will use it to help me discern whether or not he did speak to me that night and/ or what to do with that experience.
- I've heard the expression that laughter is the best medicine....and while I don't know if it is indeed the best, I can say that it sure does help. DH and I had a couple moments this week of deep belly laughter together. It felt heavenly.
Posting that book link reminded me that I wanted to share a couple books that I read while thinking through IVF as a Christian. I added this to my IVF post in case you are looking for resources.
