On being gated...

It's not fun. Because my stim is being delayed I am experiencing the extended dance mix version of the Lupron headache, and it is not as fun as it sounds. We're on day six of the headache now. (Or is it seven? I'm losing track) It was so bad yesterday that I made twe drive my car home from work. Poor thing, she missed having a clutch even more than psychohist does.

On the other hand, if it works this time around it will all have been worth it. I actually have high hopes this time. I have high hopes because at psychohist's prodding we are doing assisted hatching this time around, and my husband is a very clever man who is almost always right. While that trait can be annoying at times, it is terribly useful the rest of the time. At the same time, I am also trying to have realistic expectations. It's a very difficult balancing act to have high hopes and realistic expectations at the same time. I think it takes a certain level of multiple personality disorder to actually accomplish it properly, but we are all working very hard in here to get it just right.

I start stimming tomorrow morning. I can't wait.
