Next Wednesday is the 2 month anniversary of the 3 month Lupron shot. I am pleased to report that this second month has been much better than the first. If you asked me how much better - I would probably spontaneously burst into tears. That one side effect seems to linger on - extremely emotional. (I watched "P.S. I Love You" yesterday and went through an entire box of Kleenex - yeah, I've been known to be a bit of a boob, but that was a bit excessive, even for me!) However, comparing the last several weeks with the several months before the shot - so much better that I do cry just thinking about it. So, relief - this incredible relief - that I have a shot at feeling a lot better on a more permanent basis. Yeah, I could live with that. So, from a physical standpoint - if this is what I am going to feel like after the hysterectomy, book me an OR yesterday! From the mental/emotional - ummm, well, we're still working on that one. Being done and being "done" with that particular organ a bit more complicated than simple feeling better or not.
On an aside, while not a fantastic movie, "P.S. . . ." did a nice job of handling some of the loss/grief aspect.
