Day one of period number 483 has arrived. Okay, period 18 but it certainly feels like I'm close to 500. I'm so pissed off. Fuming. LIVID even. I'm not even upset. I'm just super annoyed. Here's the thing. I'm lazy. Naturally, I was just born that way. No judgment please, I can't help it. I… Continue reading Whoopdy-fucking-do
Christ, I've been a bit lax with the ole blog lately. To be fair, my life is pretty boring at the moment.

Is IVF with donor eggs the only option for… Continue reading IVF with donor eggs or your own eggs?

Well, my period vanished almost as quickly as it arrived. Came Sunday morning,… Continue reading Never watch the Friends finale when you’re on your period
