It's been about two and a half months since my specialist suggested that I get the Mirena pulled out. I'd been living with pain in such intensity and so often that I don't even really remember the last year and a half. But since having the Mirena out, I've been in less pain. I've been able to think, to do chores, to live off more than just junk food.
Of course, it's not fixed everything. My anxiety and depression still haunt my steps. And I still have pain on my right hand side sometimes, as well as pain when going to the bathroom and pain during my period, pain during sex, etc but it's not as intense. And that has made a huge difference.
I've started drawing, I've started going to zine fairs, I'm working on the third installment of the Bi Focus zine, I'm doing my Masters and I'm having fun. I do worry that I might be taking on too much too fast though.
I will be going for a second round of surgery, probably around October/November and I'll probably write the second part of "The Monster Inside Me" after that. I don't have high hopes but I'm seeing a specialist now who listens so I think that will make a difference.
