So I started PIO on Wednesday and I totally forgot how much I hate that damn drug!!!!!!!!!!  I was feeling like shit yesterday and I had to look back to my last blog to see if how I was feeling was “normal”….well it was. I came home and slept for 3 hrs!!!  I experienced awful stomach cramps and sorry about the TMI but the worst diarrhea.  I could not eat dinner last night cause my stomach hurt sooo bad!!!!!!!!  Today I feel much better.  I think its just my body reacting to the increased amount of progesterone in my system.  In the end this will all be worth it!!!!!!!!!!!
