Side Effects

Not much to update as of yet. I started metformin last Friday as you know, and I've noticed a lot of really good side effects.  Many were reporting some violent side effects but for me I'm having great side effects really!

Suffice to say, I have not upped my intake just yet so that could change, however in less than one week I'm down 11 pounds, and I'm feeling so much more human! I haven't felt this good in years to be honest!  Most days if battle fatigue like it was a war battle, not anymore! 

Yes it is true, when one takes this medicine there are tummy aches and other obscenities, but for the most part it has been really good to me and I feel ready to take it up a notch.

Less than a week away I will begin taking birth control as well, and get my vaccine for chicken pox, and we will have to wait 30 days before the actual treatments will begin, just to be safe as the chicken pox vaccine could be harmful if we were to get pregnant in those first 30 days. Either way, the time is putting along and we will be started in our treatment in no time!

Have a great week!
Jamie and Rachel
