I am laughing through pain. That's right. I am laughing at my pain. Oh wait - this really does hurt.

It Never Rains in Southern California....they tell me

Ah yes, the rain has come to clean us of our over indulgence of the sun. And, we welcome it. The funny thing about living in an area that has a moderately comfortable temperature all year round is that when we get a slight change, everyone is almost giddy with excitement. It is one of the reasons I have grown to love Southern California despite its appearance of hedonism. You really can see that the pleasures of life reside in the little things.

I had 3, count 'em 3, doctors visits within the last 2 weeks. Neuro, gyno and my regular doctor. All of them told me the same thing: I am young at 33, the weight will come off after a few months of not being on birth control, and I absolutely cannot take my normal round of meds if I become pregnant. They also all told me my stress level is too high and I need to find an outlet for it. Apparently my job moving out of state, the economy taking a poop and my job already being high stress has been taking a toll on me. I can't imagine how anyone could have come up with that one. The good news is that I bought a treadmill and my after work walks help me wind down.

So, as I sit in my living room with my trusty wubby (aka Jordan the dog) at my side and I listen to the rain. It is difficult for me to imagine moving away from this beautiful state I call home for another state where I cannot find anything other than the financial attractiveness in it.
