I did it!

I gave myself my first shot yesterday and all my worrying was for nothing.  It felt like little more than a bug bite.  I had to syke myself up in the doctors office before I could do it but after sitting for several minutes saying I can do this I did.  I will continue to take this medicine through the 1st of December when I see the doctor again for my training on the next meds I will be taking.  I have to learn to mix them properly.  But after than I will be giving myself 3 shots a day (holy crap yeah)  Now the bad news.  This new medicines side effects include hot flashes, increased sweating, night sweats, tiredness, and trouble sleeping.  Needless to say last night was rough.  I woke up about every hour and a half - two hours drenched in sweat and shivering.  I do have to say that even though the previous birth control I was on for this was making me tired it was nothing compared to how I feel today.  I do know it will be worth it in the long run..
