How is everyone doing today?
Mimi...hope you are taking care of yourself. Come back and chat when you feel up to it. Know that we are all thinking of you.
I went to Zumba this morning then went to see how much I made off of selling clothes at the consignment shop. I wanted to see if it was worth the hassle of taking in summer clothes. I made $61 so I figured it was worth it. I don't have nearly as many summer clothes as I did winter ones.
Still thinking of you Mimi. PM me if you need anything!
That sounds like quite a haul Meg. I've been collecting things in hopes of doing a yardsale soon. Guess I'll be able to do that sooner rather than later now. I've never done one on my own so it should be interesting.
I'm still pretty numb. I a little nervous that I'm going to break down and not be able to stop :(
We've done two garage sales. We could probably do another one but I just don't want to store everything until we do it. We have quite a bit of toys we could probably get rid of at a garage sale. Our neighbor had one this weekend. I wish we would've known. i would've asked if we could've put some stuff on their sale.
Oh, Jenni I am so so sorry! Huge hugs :bighug:
Jenni...I'm sorry I didn't see this earlier. :bigarmhug:
Thank you all for the kind words! I am just numb today, huge improvement from yesterday. DH decided that we needed to get some wine in us last night. We downed 2 bottles and I cannot believe I am not hungover today.
RE wants me to have a consult on May 9th. I don't want to go, I told him there is no more trying, but he said I should come in anyway. What do you think is the purpose of this appointment?
I'm glad that you are feeling some better. In some ways, every day gets a little less hard. Continue to allow yourself to grieve and be kind to yourself. I'm not an alcohol drinker but I do think that a 2L of Dr. Pepper is in my future. Might even just connect 2 straws together and go at it ;)
We always had a "debriefing" consult and will have another one this time (whenever I feel like calling and making the appt). I'm sure it's to go over the procotol. It might be for their benefit and records in case they have a patient in the future in a similar situation. I think that this whole RE business in general is a lot of "guess and test" and the more information they can glean, the better. Maybe it will also help give you closure? From what you have said about your RE in the past, they do seem to be very patient-oriented and not out to get just your $ (our old clinic was like this hence the switch). Continued big hugs!!
Mimi...I'm sure you needed those bottles on wine. I would've done the same thing. You go months and months doing everything right for you body so you deserve that. You must've needed them if you don't even have a hangover. The first day is always the hardest but it will slowly get better day by day. My RE wanted us to follow-up after our last failed cycle also. He said he'd even do a phone f/u on a Saturday so we wouldn't have to drive 7 hours to do so. I never made the appt. I didn't see any need to since we were done trying. I knew we did all we could. I did think about writing him a letter saying how much I appreciated him and his clinic and that we had decided to be done.
Jenni...Enjoy your Dr. Pepper. Sounds like you need it also. I'm so sorry you are having to go through this.
Mimi and Jenni....I hope you stick around here on the chat thread. I'll miss you two if you don't :(. I feel I've really gotten to know the two of you through this.
