The Wrath of Khan-dice
My superfact is starting to kick into overdrive. I told Mike it may not be safe for me to drive anymore due to the rage I feel. Stupid stuff people do irritate me on the best of days, but while on menopause meds it just about sends me over the edge. Everyone knows that I have problems holding my tongue normally so mixed with this med I feel like I am on the razaor's edge of insanity or atleast like I am about to have a stroke. I just have to make it until next Friday. The nurse told me that the Puregon should counter the effects of the Superfact. One of the agents told me I should take it easy on Mike (Maybe he should live with Mike and see what he says after a month)or I will scare him away cause he is getting a preview of what I will be like when I actually go through Menopause.(Yes, I did bite my tongue with that comment) In my defence though, I have this to say: First of all, when I am actually going through menopause I hardly think I will be stressed out about the fact that I just spent $8,500.00 on something that may or may not work. Secondly, I doubt that I will be wondering if I will be childless for the rest of my life (by the time I am 50-60 years old I think I will have my answer by then, just a thought). And thirdly I really doubt that I will also be on the Birth Control Pill as well!!! Hence, Menopause!!!!!!! Your child bearing years are OVER!! This ones for you Shannon - SERENITY NOW!!! LOL
Simply said, Infertility sucks! I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. That being said, it has taught me a lot about strength, compassion and patience. I am extremely fortunate to have conceived a perfect, beautiful daughter via my 1st IVF cycle. I am hoping that we will be just as fortunate this time around.
