I got a little bent out of shape over the cyst but Chris at love, hope, and faith told me that she had one and that it went away in a few weeks. Her suggestion was that I take this cycle to take care of myself so that's what I am going to do.
I can go on a mini-vacation with my husband without worrying that it will have to be cancelled so I can go to the doctor. I can catch up on my exercising! I can relax. I am going to look into acupuncture and also get a massage during this month.
My mom couldn't understand why I was upset over the cyst and taking the month off. She insisted that since it was out of my control, I shouldn't stress about it.
I think what she doesn't get is that yes, it is out of my control, but the whole reason I am doing fertility treatments is that I WANT TO CONTROL the situation. I took drugs to gain control of my cycle and now I feel like I've totally lost control.
So, it is my challenge to myself to enjoy this month off and not see it as a failure but as an opportunity. Good luck to me.
