I have gotten through the first month on birth control and holy cow, life is night and day. It appears I have been living for years with completely out of whack hormone levels. I freaking sleep all right. I don't feel suicidal anymore. I feel... pretty darn good. It isn't for everyone but this is kind of all right.

Today is Mothering Sunday in the UK. It always feels a bit like, "sorta Mother's Day but whatevs... the real day is in May." I was given cards by my children. (Thank you very much.) And then Mr. Jenner took the kids to his mum's for a sunday roast. I stayed home and had a few hours to myself. I ate cold pizza, watched my spanish soap opera, and slouched across the sofa. I also did a bit of laundry, and poked about in the garden. It was just a few hours but dang, it was a gift and a half. Then everyone came home and I made children supper, and cuddled with Miss Biscuit, and talked with Senor Onion. It was not too bad a day.

A friend of a friend is pushing me to submit something to some anthology. So that is what I am doing. Because rejection is life and life is rejection, and sometimes you get ice cream. Or something. I have no idea why I do this.

I made a cake that I sort of messed up in the process of mixing the batter but somehow I managed to save it and it turned out even better than I had anticipated. I have been passing out hunks of it to people. It is a rather Spring-like cake. Very cheerful. "here have something to make you feel okay about things." My sister in law fed some to her children for breakfast. Yes breakfast cake can be a thing.

Better living through chemistry, lady. I hear you. I am currently singing the praises of the head meds they gave me because it is like full-on Rip van Winkle around here. (Ha, changed that -- originally I put Rumpelstiltskin, but I knew that was wrong the instant I hit the button.)

I am SO GLAD to hear the birth control is helping.

One of the books I just read had a lot of in-depth info advocating for low-dose hormones for a set of different kinds of conditions that can arise as women get older. I'd been kind of skeptical on that front, but this all came from a clinician with extensive experience and was very convincing. And clearly, in your case, this is a godsend!

Breakfast cake is TOTALLY a thing. It's been happening in my house for decades.

I am also SO GLAD to hear the birth control is helping. That is just the best.
