Got my second Lupron shot this past Friday.  Some hot flashes have started to take hold here and there.  Nothing new to report otherwise.

Chris stepped in and fixed our Lupron order issue.  We have the shots delivered to our house and I bring them to appointments.  What a mess.  Nobody can tell you the stupid hiccups that you will inevitably face going through insurance for reproductive issues in a non-mandate state.  Some medication is covered, some is not.   My endo needs treatment and the Lupron is essentially for that treatment…BUT Lupron is also used in IVF to suppress, so you have to make sure your ducks are in a row when dealing with the insurance representatives.


Mood swings off the charts–Sometimes I actually fall into despair: “…this is just not worth it… I have totally lost the idea of what having a child even means at this point…This is all so meaningless…”  Add to that some pretty nasty irritability and I am ready to pop off at a moments notice.  Brain thumping headaches that don’t always go away with that prescription dose of Ibuprofen. Like, the kind that hurt behind your eyes?
And the wost?…soreness.  HORRIBLY sore. I take off my bra and it hurts. I dare wear a tee shirt without a one and it feels like I ran two marathons back to back.  An almost unfair level of soreness.  I now sleep in a sports bra all the time.

On another note…still waiting to see what will happen with our second Lupron shot.  We are in the middle of a “who receives?” volley of phone calls and I think I unwittingly set my OBGyn’s nurses against my RE’s nurses.   It’s a virtual medical smack-down.  Tune in later to see who wins…
