My wonder drug?

I don't want to jinx myself but I have been in an extremely good mood lately!!!!!  YIPPEE!!!!  When I went for my annual GYN exam at my Midwife's office I discussed my method of birth control.  Over the past 2 years I have tried 3 types of birth control pills, each time I went on the pill I became severely depressed.  I'm not in a relationship now so I don't need birth control but I'm a planner and with my two past pregnancies being totally not planned I like to be proactive and take precaution.  I know this might be controversial, especially since I'm a single Christian woman but this is between me and God, not anyone else.

SOOOOO anyway my midwife and I decided that the Depo-Provera shot would be good for me.  I was on it years ago and did not have any ill side effects so we decided to give it a shot (no pun intended:)!!!  My midwife thinks that Estrogen is my enemy . . . all the pills I tried had Estrogen in them, even the lowest dose pill made me depressed.  The Depo shot does not have any Estrogen, just Progesterone, which has a calming effect in some women.  So 2 weeks ago I got my first shot. 

I've been waiting, and waiting for the down feeling I usually get.  Praise GOD I feel great!!!!  I'm so motivated, so energized, and no down feelings!!!!! 

Could the Depo Shot be my wonder drug??????
