my mood

It's rough. My emotions are definitely being expressed through anger and snark at work right now. My coworkers and students are taking the brunt of it.

I find myself having a conversation with someone at work then walking away and thinking, "my gosh that was mean. Control yourself!"

Not exactly sure how to deal with that.

In other news, I gave myself my first shot tonight. It was heparin in my stomach. Not too bad. Max will be out of town on Monday and Tuesday so I have to learn how to do this. The progesterone in the butt will be more difficult. I think I'm going to have to get a friend to do that. Not sure I can get the right angle. Any words of wisdom?

Thanks for all the well wishes. I still can't believe it.

Hoping many of you get some resolution soon as well, no matter what oath you are currently traveling.


  1. Yeah, those dang hormones can be a bitch. I had my sister give me my shots but I did do them a couple of times on my own. I had to stab a little closer to the hip/love handle and the angle was still hard. I just pushed a little, took a break, twisted my body again and pushed a little more, and so on. It is hard to maintain that angle for too long. Good luck!

  2. I am JUST now finishing a two week wait, my first, and all of you bloggers have me convinced that it will be my first of, oh, 36. I'm terrified! So I'll be reading this blog and rooting for you guys!
