I’ve had the Mirena for over two years now, which was fitted in the most part to control my PCOS symptoms - something it has done amazingly once it settled in. I used to be unable to function for at least 2 weeks out of every month from the pain and related effect it had on me, not to mention the amount of money I was spending on sanitary products. Now it’s the complete opposite and I feel like I’ve been given my life back again! It’s wonderful to not be a slave to my body’s fucked-up wiring anymore and be able to do what I want, when I want to :-D
Some people don’t have any other options. I didn’t, as prior health issues meant that I couldn’t take the Pill, nor could I have the injection or implant. Plus one of my health issues is hormone related, and the Mirena coil has actually helped with my health problems (and it was the only one I could have as my doctor refused to fit the copper coil, again because of health issues). And it has changed my life in so many ways - I feel so happy that I was able to have access to it.
I have to admit, it did hurt to get it fitted, and it felt weird for a while. But I had the Mirena fitted over two years ago now and I love it. It has controlled my PCOS symptoms hugely, saved me a tonne of money and, after the first few months, has been totally pain free. I was really against it at first (even the thought of it squicked me out) but it was the only option left for me to try and I was desperate. Turns out it was the best thing I could have done!

I remember when I was younger I decided I was going to ride my horse bareback.
And then I decided to try one of the jumps that was set up in the arena… Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes >_<
Response to The 32 Best Fantasy Books Of 2015:
Robin Hobb <3 Also didn’t realise there was another Maria V Snyder book out - will re-read the other Study books first. Also discovered a new author, Genevieve Cogman, and her two books The Invisible Library and The Masked City. Really loved them, can’t wait for more!
Response to 17 People Talk About Antidepressants:
This is so me at the moment. I just feel empty and exhausted pretty much every day, and have no inspiration or focus to write or play music or do any crafting. I either sleep too much or not at all and even prescription sleeping pills don’t work. Thankfully I’m on disability support so don’t have to try and work a job around it all, but even that depresses me because I worked for almost 10 years before my situation got so worse I couldn’t work. I hate the idea that someone else could feel the way I do, but it’s also kinda nice not to be alone x
Ended up in tears by the third point. Pretty much all of it is so very, very relevant.

I used to say that “Arsenal were playing at home” - until I moved to North London just up the road from where the football team have their stadium and it caused all manner of confused conversations before I just gave up using it *lol*
Creamola Foam man… that shit was amazing. Always stocked up every time I went to see family in Glasgow as they never sold it south of the border!
