NYEBoy. He is my sometimes better, often times smarter other half. He compliments me well. We’ve been living in FL since 2008 and we’ll likely be here until 2014. You'll never see his face on this blog for his privacy, but he really does exist!
Infertility. I have PCOS and a clinical diagnosis of a chromosome imbalance. We’ll be doing genetic testing before we start fertility treatments in 2014. I’m currently taking Metf0rmin and eating a low amylose diet. In September 2011, I had a miscarriage before we even knew we were pregnant. It’s a total mindfuck. No other way around it. This year will mark 8 years of my TTC journey. The only thing that gets me through the grief is knowing we’ll be beginning treatments in two years.
College. I am a full time college student double majoring in math and education. College is my DD plan. Death or divorce. I don’t plan on working after I graduated unless I have to, but very thankful for this chance.
K. She is my sister. I took my sister to court for custody of my niece in August 2010. We were granted emergency temporary custody of my niece for six months. In FL, judges are changed every two years, our final court hearing was in Feb with a new judge. The judge gave K custody back. K is pregnant again. I have lots to say but I can not do so due to ongoing issues related to A’s well being.
A. She’s one of the best things to ever happen to me. I love her more than words can express. My only desire is for her to be happy, healthy, and properly cared for. I will fight for her until she’s old enough to fight for herself. This is my promise, baby girl. I love you to the moon and back, always and forever, until my last breath.
Me. Who am I? Sometimes I wonder who I am. I am trying to learn to love the life I have instead of being upset that I don’t have the life I planned. I am funny, slightly smart, short, kind, and compassionate. I love to paint, craft, and spend NYEBoy’s money. I am blessed in life, minus the custody case and infertility. Oh, and I love blogging, tweeting, and cussing.
Any other questions? Drop me a line.
