*Disclaimer - this post was not written this morning, I am deliberately posting these entries on different dates so that I can be fully open about this IVF stuff without people knowing exactly what is happening when. It's a self preservation thing, with all of the injected hormones I become a bit of an emotional wreck, and am saving myself the pressure of people curious to know outcomes before I'm ready to tell.

The short temper has calmed down a lot, possibly I've been consciously taking myself out of situations where it might cause harm. I've also been trying to direct my emotional overcharge towards doing useful tasks. Unfortunately this is where the next big side effect kicks in. My ability to concentrate on anything has been diminished a thousandfold. I'm leaving the gas on, forgetting to stop pouring tea from the pot when the cup is full, and increasingly unable to finish a sentence without the point disappearing from my mind. Typing this is quite difficult. I'm hoping this symptom vanishes quickly, I have a long drive coming up, and while I could take the passenger seat I'd feel really bad for doing so. The injections themselves are going fine, only hurting occasionally. Better go, time to make lots of lists - and get the washing in that I put out yesterday and totally forgot about thereafter...
