My brain is too full...

...and I have not been here nearly enough for everything that has been going on. *sigh*

*Three* months since I last wrote. And I have enough topics in mind to write for a really long time. But I don't have the time to do so right now. Maybe next week, when we are on break at the University, and I might have more than 5 minutes to dedicate to myself and my mental health. Because that is what this blog is about, for me. A safe place to dump the contents of my (usually overflowing) brain, and process what is going on around me.

A smattering of the things I've been thinking about:
  • The friend who had twins at 25 weeks following donor IUI
  • Another 'friend' who had twins at 25 weeks following donor sperm IVF (oh, this one's a doozy)
  • Running in to one of our reproductive endocrinologists at a meeting last week
  • Hearing the same person's name in another context, and desperately backtracking to find a way to explain how I know of her without revealing how that came to be
  • My disdain for people on Twitter and Facebook ... and how I sometimes use the sites as mechanisms to make myself feel better (another doozy)
  • A little bit of weight loss - just enough to make me feel like I might be able to lose a little more, but not enough that I feel like I actually accomplished something
  • The (@#%(*%* IUD
  • The holidays
  • Some (extended) family drama
Oh, and so much more. New roles at work, grant applications, and on and on and on. I'm just trying to survive this semester and improve on my time management and other skills next semester.

More, hopefully, this weekend or early next week. In case anyone's out there. :)
