7 Quick Takes - Vol. 13

Even though I feel SO MUCH better than I did in October, I still have a long way to go in trying to figure out how to manage this Graves' disease on a day to day basis. Some days are good, some days, my thyroid hands me my ass on a platter.
I don't know if my recent lack of motivation to blog has more to do with the Graves' or with the lack of anything even remotely interesting occuring in my life to inspire me. This pervasive feeling of being stuck in a rut is the pits! I need something meaningful to do.

7 in 7 - Day 4: Au Naturale

Sex au naturale, that is.  As in, we use no contraception of any kind, and we haven't since sometime within the first year of our marriage.

Why am I telling you this?  Well, because it is National Natural Family Planning (NFP) Awareness Week this week, and I want to tell you a little bit about it from my experience and encourage you to ditch the birth control, and use NFP to space pregnancies instead.

What is Natural Family Planning?  It is a scientific process of determining when during her cycle a woman is fertile and when she is infertile, and using that information to determine when to have or not have intercourse in order to achieve or avoid a pregnancy.

Burn, Baby, Burn

Five long years.  More than 60 heartbreaking months.  Over 1,825 days of riding a rollercoaster of hopefulness, despondency, and aching resignation.  God only knows how many more days, weeks, months, and years of the same are in my future.

I am infertile.
