Wastin away again in Proveraville

Well, AF decided not to visit.  You know, the one time in my life I actually want the bitch here.  But ain't that always the way?

I'm on provera for 7 days.  Hopefully to force AF to get her butt here in about 10 days so I can start this friggin cycle.

By the way, when the hell did I become one of these people?

I'm not even cycling yet and I'm one of those people on so many vitamins and medications that I have to plot them out a week in advance to keep them all straight!  

You are looking at:
  • Vitamin D
  • Alli - diet pill
  • Synthroid
  • Folic acid
  • Metformin
  • Prenatals
  • Provera
When I'm cycling, I take little Post-it flags and write the name of the injection, or however many vivelle patches I'm supposed to apply, or whatever, and stick them on the lid of the AM or PM of the appropriate day.  Then I throw the flag away when I've taken that medication so that I have a visual indicator of where the hell I am in the daily medications.

It's official, I'm gettin old.


  1. I'm getting old too :) My first thought on seeing this was "I need to get me one of those!"

    You know, if you are taking a good prenatal vitamin, you can ditch the vitamin D and the folate because the prenatal has all you need. You've got enough to worry about :)

  2. I love those little plastic things. I pull them out of my purse at meals and feel like an old person. ;)

    have you found alli to work???

  3. You could make a ceramic pill organizer! With lots of tiny little lids!


Please share your thoughts! It makes me feel like I have friends.
