Wish Us Luck

Hi everyone! I hope your Tuesday was great! Mine was extremely long and tedious. We’re going through a lot of changes at work right now. A lot of our computer systems are changing. We’ve had to go through several training sessions in order to catch up on everything that’s new. All of this wears me out and makes me extremely tired. The company I work for was bought by another company in July. There’s been so many changes in only a few months. There’s been a lot of layoffs and so many people have come and gone. Some also found other jobs. My department has gone through different managers throughout the years. I didn’t particularly like or get along with one of my previous supervisorsΒ last year. Because of problems with favoritism and a conflict between this manager, a previous co-worker and myself, I walked out for two days. Sometimes I wonder why I decided to go back. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for having a job but I can only take so much.

This coming Friday, I have an appointment with a fertility specialist. Although I’ve been told I can still have children by different doctors, it hasn’t happened again in almost 10 years. Back in 2011, I had surgery to remove one of my ovaries. Before the surgery, I was in a lot of pain, especially duringΒ that time of the month. I was in so much pain, I couldn’t even get out of bed to go to work sometimes. My whole abdominal area and lower back felt like I was constantly getting punched. I sometimes had trouble keeping my balance while I was walking. I eventually found out I had a cyst the size of tennis ball growing around one of my ovaries. My gynecologist diagnosed me with Endometriosis. Ever since the surgery, I’ve had to get routine checkups and ultrasounds to make sure I don’t have anymore large cysts. I’ve had smaller cysts but nothing as big or painful as the tennis ball-sized cyst. Thankfully, I haven’t had to go to the Emergency Room as much as when I had that cyst. The surgery was extremely painful. The doctor cut me as if I was having a c-section. He did such a great job that I have zero scarring. I only missed 10 days of work. The doctor said I would be out at least a month but thankfully it was a lot less.

To be honest, I’m scared about going to my appointment. I don’t know what to really expect. I hope they’ll be able to do some type of treatment or surgery that will help me have one more child. If it’s not too much to ask, please keep me in your thoughts on Friday morning. I will keep all of you updated on how the appointment went. Thank you for your continued support, everyone! Until next time!

  1. Of course Amaya! I will include you in my prayers. Everything is possible. Even if the doctors say it is not. So many people worked miracles which left the doctors speechless. It will all be fine! A big hug and all the best for tomorrow, dear!!! I am glad I saw this post early enough. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

  2. Lisa, good luck at the doctor’s. I am sure if something can be done to safely pursue your dream it will be an option made available to you. The key word there is safely. Without going into detail let’s just leave it as I know what it is like to have an unprofessional, disheartening work environment. I hope something happens positive in that scenario for you also.

  3. Boy do I get the stress of the work changes. Going through a bit of that myself right now. Hate to hear about your difficulty with fertility. Hope all goes well and that, if you want more kids, you’ll be able to make that happen. Goo thoughts sent your way. πŸ™‚
