Day 2: Mental block

Day two on stims, and my right ovary is already complaining. It's been sending up indignant twinges since this morning.

Even so early, this cycle feels very different to me. I have a definite mental barrier that's making the injections more difficult: I sit there and poke myself gently with the needle, reluctant to just shove it home. Once it's in, I press the plunger slowly, instead of resolutely sending the medication off. At some level I'm feeling a real resistance to going through with it this time, and that's very different from before.
