Thank you all. My ability to roll with the punches is actually pretty pathetic. This has just been a really long punch and it's more like I fell flat on my face and then got back up, hah. It took a long time, I've been trying to have kids for 7 years. Also, I've been known to be pretty melodramatic, especially when I'm upset, so don't mind me over here whining!
Thanks about the video! I'm just glad I got her to even TRY to say it. If we ever go back to her SLP, I'll try to get her to use the proper term, instead of teacher, but no promises, hah. Though, like you said, at least she knows her name!
Oh man, that would be terrifying!! We don't have very big spiders where I live (these tarantulas are too much of a drive that they don't show up at my house), but when I went to Japan, I had a bit of culture shock with their huge spiders. One time, I went to take a shower, and there was this HUGE spider IN THE SHOWER. I had already changed and everything, and totally freaked out. I didn't want to get help since I was naked (I could have gotten dressed again, but did I mention that I freaked out??), and I wasn't as, um, humane towards all animals as I am now, so I tried to kill it. It was too big to squish, so I turned the water up really high and washed it down the drain. It was too big to fit!!! I still get shivers thinking about that. And, to be honest, I still feel bad about the way I treated that poor spider! ETA: it's actually a lot because of that guilt that I can't stand killing animals now, and why I'm trying to teach Maiya to respect all animals. Don't want her to suffer the guilt I am, hah.
L, Black Widows?? You should be terrified of those! How did you manage to not get bit??
Ok, now, here is really trying to look on the bright side! I've been sick, and not taking ANYTHING for it, because I was in the 2ww and paranoid. Well, now that I know that my body is forever "free" from such concerns, I intend to take Nyquil tonight. Can't tell you how happy that makes me, hah. Hopefully I will actually sleep!!
Just because I'm on the topic of meds... I'll try to look on the bright side here, too. Since I finally connected my awful headaches with the fertility drugs, my doctor is supposedly going to prescribe me something strong for the horrible headache I know is coming. I admit, I am TERRIFIED. Those headaches nearly sent me to the ER when I was on ONE amp. I've been on FOUR amps, and for 3 extra days. Yes, terrified. Please, doc, give me some good drugs!! I've even told hubby that he must stay home on CD 3 of the next cycle (when I expect the headache) to care for Maiya, because I am taking a sick day!!
