So do you think I can ascribe this evening's crabbiness to the fourth day of suppression, or is it due to what seems to be the last day of my cycle (if you can even call it that now it's all disrupted by vitamin deficiency and drugs), or should I just own up to my profound character flaws? Let me give you the unvarnished facts. On the way home from work, my husband tried vainly to get me to agree to various dinner offerings. This sorry interaction ended with me going to the supermarket and buying my own dinner. And there was whining involved.
Having made and eaten my (very tasty) dinner, I iced the chocolate gingerbread cake I made when I got fed up of making lekachs a few days ago. Then I cut us both a piece for tonight, and made two packages - one for each of us to take to work tomorrow. Then I picked a fight about whether he'd appropriately thanked me for the cake and told me how delicious it was (he had, but only after I asked him).
It's a fair cop. I'm just a crabby person. I can accept my character flaws, they've got me this far.
And while I'm owning up to that, Katie and Tom. Having a baby. I'm so
outraged bemused jealous repelled fascinated pleased for them.
The first injection did go well. After I managed to break two needles and gouge a line into my little finger, by trying to penetrate the vial through the protective plastic lid. Yes, the one that's labelled "Flip Off". I clearly thought the manufacturer was just being a little punchy. Day 2 went not so well as I went back to my preferred leg injection method. Bad choice - you were all correct. The fluid seemed to hang around under the skin, and it got pretty itchy. I've gone back to the stomach and am now amusing myself each morning by what kind of pattern I can make with the dots of old injection sites. Only 36 or so more to go. That figure is a little higher than anticipated since (i) I'm an idiot and (ii) my clinic is idiotic. Re (i) - If you start on a Monday, day 14 is a Sunday, stupid. Re (ii) - My clinic, says the receptionist, only does suppression scans on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Oh well. I guess it can't matter that much or they wouldn't do it (look at me being all philosophical about the clinic. I must have some patience in me after all).
We're really underway now.
