My boyfriend and I have decided that we're going to use condoms this month because I start my new job next week and I want to make sure my insurance kicks in before I get pregnant. It's going to be weird because we've never used condoms before. He understands where I'm coming from though, and I think it makes sense. I'm not going to go back on the pill for a month just so I can go back off and have my hormones all out of wack all over again. I hope this works. With my luck I'll get pregnant anyway even if we use a condom just to mess with my time line. Oh well, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I finally feel semi-normal again after stopping my pills. I was all kinds of weird emotions and eating habits for the last month and a half. It's weird how much something like that can effect you. I started birth control just after I turned 18 and I'm going to turn 25 in a month, so nearly 7 years of controlled hormones in my body. I could never have guessed just how much that could dictate how my body works and feels.
