It's hard to believe that a year ago today, I was diagnosed with severe stage 4 endometriosis and was told my chances of conceiving were extremely low.

It's hard to believe that I've been thru 6 months of Lupron hell then a TAH/BSO.

It's hard to believe that I will NEVER know what it's like to carry and give birth to a child that my hubby and I created by our love.

I'm not as depressed as I sound, it's just hard to believe all of the above. Actually, I'm doing rather well. Still suffer from sleeplessness and have my dream of a crying baby that I know is mine, but can't find. Not as often, but it still comes.

Hubby and I are looking forward to adopting an infant. Hoping by this time next year I'll be holding our baby.

I work a lot. Overtime at regular job and part time at another (trying to get the $ together to adopt). So, I am physically tired a lot.

My diabetes is doing much better. Although I continue to gain weight. ARGH.

Hope everyone else is doing okay. I'm sorry I've been off for a while, but have been very busy.

(((Michelle))), I'm glad to hear you're starting to do better. I know it helps to have a goal in mind and be working towards that goal. That way you can feel like you are 'in control' of what happens in your future.

I think part of the trouble for a lot of us with the hyst surgery is that it was totally out of our control, and this is very hard for us to accept. We keep thinking that there must be some mistake, this isn't really happening, shouldn't be happening, this wasn't part of the plan. It is restoring when we can start to get back to where things are once again part of our (new) plan!

Good luck with your new plan... I know you are going to be able to make it a reality.

Hi Michelle

I have a beautiful adopted daughter. I had a wonderful adoption experience. I am so happy that you and your husband have decided to adopt.

If you need encouragement or help with your adoption process please email me.

God Bless,

Hi, I saw this while looking for weight loss info. Diabetics can get help with blood sugarlevels by eating or making tea from nopalitos, the nopal cactus leaf that you see in the grocery and wonder what to do with. A cup of tea or some cactus with each meal is the recommended technique. I'm not diabetic but I do struggle with weight refusing to budge, so I thought lower blood sugar could be helpful. I've been adding it to vegetables, sauteeing it with everything else. To make tea, I think that you grate some and boil it a little. Some one else told me to fry it like okra but I don't fry stuff. I hope this helps! Barbara
