Post Birth Control Journey Week 20
FINALLY I am seeing the light. When I started my new regimen with my new doctor it really got me super anxious. Then when I started to take the supplements I started to experience bloating, I was nauseous and just could not eat. I contacted my doctor and she advised me she was confident that this was going to work. We changed a few things on how I was taking my meds and now I feel fucking amazing. I say amazing because I have been feeling like shit since god knows a very long damn time but I got off BC Dec 18th as I was titrating it. Then I was completely off January 15th and slowly shit got worse after that. Once Philadelphia went into quarantine I went into a deep depression and my condition was just getting worse. So I have been use to feeling like shit for about 4 months and I'm just glad to be feeling better. I have been on an intense plan with about 10 supplements, mediating everyday and taking 3 detox baths a week. I am also watching what I eat and follow a gluten free diet. I drink herbal teas, seed cycle and focus a lot of my mindset. Things are getting better and I am excited for my healing. Averagely it does take 4-6 months for your body to regulate and get back to normal after birth control and with the help of my doctor we are on track because if you do not seek help it can take much longer. With my case birth control made my thyroid sluggish and just wasn't working properly I also had adrenal fatigue that was also causing the mood disturbances, anxiety and IBS. I am interested to see what my labs looks like now but if you struggle with anxiety please get your thyroid levels checked, as well as your stomach and vitamins levels.
Here is my week in review
Yesterday I hardly ate due to bloating. I contacted my do the because I was concerned on how shitty I’ve been feeling. She assured me that she is confident this is going to work. Hoping for a better day today and praying I can eat normally.
I did get more sleep than I did yesterday.
Day 137 (Thursday April 30th) THE START OF FEELING BETTER
Yesterday was a much better day. I was able to workout and my body didn’t feel as tired and I actually felt strong. I ate 3 meals and my stomach didn’t feel uncomfortably bloated. I’m grateful for one day I feeling better it gives me hope.
Yesterday was pretty good. I worked out and didn’t have any issues with my stomach. I was excited about working but I still have to get out of my own head. This morning I’m anxious thinking of things I need to do or thinking of the future that always starts my anxiety attacks. I don’t wait until I wake up normal again. I also didn’t get much sleep but I’m not tired.
Things are starting to brighten up. Only thing is my sleep. I’m starting to become more productive and excited again about my business. My anxiety through the day has been manageable I do still have my morning anxiety but not as bad as before. My stomach is not crazy bloated anymore and I am able to eat. Progress is coming staying focused.
I think I got about 4 1/2 hours of sleep. I’m up and not tired but I feel like I should be sleeping more. I try awaken by my husband snoring or breathing heavy so I’m going to try to sleep in another room to see if it’s me or if it’s him waking me up.
I honestly miss my 7-8 hours of sleep. I experienced a night sweat last night but I know my period should be coming on soon. Morning anxiety is becoming a little calmer no heart pounding this morning but I hear ringing in my ears and my body gets tingly a bit.
I think I got 5 1/2 hours of sleep today. I keep waking up way before my alarm 430am to be exact. I don’t like waking up this early but i think Instead of laying there I’m just going to start my day and see how my day goes. Yesterday o noticed breast tenderness so should be getting aunt flow soon.
Brewster tenderness but not period yet. I have been on a 27 day cycle and now I am a day late but I do feel like it’s coming. Yesterday was a good day I didn’t have anxiety and my mindset is right on track. Things are brightening up.
