Now trying Lithium out for a mood stabilizer….. it’s not doing fun things to my stomach, but at least although there haven’t been changes that have been too noticeable yet, my anxiety does seem to be a little less. I’m also feeling a bit less depressed, but that could just be that my hormones have shifted.

On the IUD/endo front things are… interesting. The good news is that my periods are much lighter, almost to the point of non-existent as far as bleeding goes. The bad news is that this month I’m having a terrible period pain wise….. yesterday was the worst, but today hasn’t been fun (though I have managed to just get by with OTC meds today for pain)….

I don’t share good news often enough.
In fact I’m not even sure I’ve mentioned my IUD placement at all on my blogs.

I had an IUD placed in… I believe it was early May….. and although I have some discomfort physically, over all it seems to actually be working to treat my endo! The only other thing (aside from surgery) that has helped was the birth control patch, which I had to use without any breaks, so that I wouldn’t bleed at all!

Yay for working birth control and endo control! I wanted to wait until I had at least a couple months of it before really talking about how it’s helping, and I hope it continues to, because it’s so nice to not have to worry about taking a pill daily or anything!
