Turns out I am a spaz. I was so worried about the Follistim pen that I rushed home from work to watch a youtube video of how to work it. Its super easy, that’s probably the point of the pen huh? So while I watched the video I put everything together, I guess I expected it to take an hour because when it was all ready (after the 4 minute video) it was 6:15 and I don’t take my meds until 7… so then I sulked away and watched the Voice (which is fabulous) for the next 45 mins until it was time for my shots.
It also turns out that sticking yourself with two needles isn’t really that much harder than one needle. My ovaries were already hurting before the Follistim though so I’m expecting some significant pain for the next week.
In case you were wondering, endometriosis sucks. I’m sure that it presents differently in every endo girl, but for me, when I have ovary pain my legs go numb from my hips to my knees. It’s a really awkward, painful, strange feeling. I haven’t had it much since I went gluten free but now it’s back and in action, which surprises me because I always assumed it was from ovarian cysts and I know I don’t have any right now.
Well, the point of this story is that I’m afraid heavy ovaries may translate to a week of hell for me, a week where I can’t take any Celebrex, which is the only thing that works on the pain. I’m sad too because Blue is just getting home and I just want to have fun with him, not lay around on the couch miserable.
