I got an unexpected treat yesterday when I walked into my office. Some anonymous nice person sent me a bracelet from The Fertile Garden on Etsy. There was no name; just an unsigned card. What a lovely surprise.
In case you hadn't noticed, I've been a bit depressed lately. Plus, I'm on Letrozole now. It's actually a medicine that's used to treat breast cancer, but it helps with fertility because it lowers your estrogen level, and makes your body think you're going into menopause, so you release a bunch of eggs all at once in some last-ditch effort to procreate while you still can. The downside? I have a bunch of menopause symptoms. I'm a cranky mess, and I cry at every tiny thing.
The upside? I could get away with just about anything and blame it on the meds. Sadly, J has been in Amsterdam for a week, and hasn't been here for me to milk the situation with the way I'd like. Lucky for him. Not so lucky for me.
(Have I mentioned that I'm seriously over this whole being infertile thing?)
Anyway, whoever sent me this, thank you. It made me smile. I will wear it and feel a warm anonymous hug.
