I seriously think I’m starting to take on a needle phobia. I’ve been needled so much over the past year that now I flinch every time a needle goes in. It used to not be a problem at all, which proved to be a necessity for an infertile like me but things have certainly changed. I think my pain tolerance just isn’t what it used to be, and I am usually a pretty tough cookie. I’m beginning to dislike needles so much that I didn’t even enjoy my last acupuncture session very much and I’ve always enjoyed acupuncture.
Thankfully, right now all I have to endure are PIO intramuscular injections twice a day. The only other needles I have to face are during acupuncture. I will have a session before and after the transfer on Thursday (ZOMG! that’s tomorrow!).
Even though I’m beginning to really hate needles and being poked and prodded, I know it’s all for a good cause. As a matter of fact, I hope I’m getting needled for the next 10 to 12 weeks!
