17.Tell us your funniest Clomid/Femara/Injectibles mood-swing story. If you don’t have one, tell us your funniest general infertility drug story.
At one point, during my stims (Gonal-F) last year...well, every day, really, I cried. Not upset. Just cried.
The one day in particular that I remember I was at work. And for half an hour straight I had been weeping. On the phone. While talking to customers. AND IT WOULDN'T STOP. I just sat there while tears poured down my face.
My coach eventually came over and asked if she could do anything, if I was alright. Everyone I worked with was well aware of what I was going through, and she told me she wasn't sure she should ask or let it slide. And all I could do was laugh. And cry. Totally irrational. But completely out of control.
I felt sooooo badly for the guy who sat next to me during that time (and the beginning of my pregnancy). Hi, my name is Genevieve and I am a hormonal and anxiety-ridden basket case. Poor guy. I cried ALLLLLL THE TIME. But that day was out of control.
Oddly, instead of being frightened, he was totally chill, and spent the time available between calls trying to make me smile :-) I am very grateful for that! (Not to mention for the times he rubbed my back while I was dry-heaving on phone calls, between phone calls, while he was on phone calls. OMG, could you ask for a better teammate????)
My other favorite part of injections was my poor friend who had to do my PIO shots every Saturday for me as my Hubby was working. Poor thing...the first time I had my head craned over my shoulder, holding her hand to point the syringe and needle in the right direction, LOL.
