Rage and despair
So it is now official...the hormones have won. I feel like every moment of these past few days has been spent trying to just keep my head above water. And I have these wonderful moments, where everything is good and I am at peace, full of hope, and content with my wait. And then out of no where...WHAM! I'm not even sure of the triggers anymore, I just morph into this other person. And I am trying so hard not to let the crazy thoughts take over and not blow up at every person who crosses my path, but I feel myself slowly crumbling. I'm not even sure at this point what I am upset about - is it the waiting? is it the endless stream of women who are getting pregnant without a care in the world? is it all the happy baby pictures? or is it just that I feel God is not hearing me and that I am all alone in this? I begged Andrew last night to just let me stop this...just let my body rest so I can feel like a normal person who is in control of her own emotions again. It always seems to be one step forward a two (or 8) steps back, never actually moving forward. Feeling very discouraged at this particular point in time (but don't worry, an hour ago I was perfectly happy and in another hour...well, who knows??) Second Lupron shot arrives tomorrow AM, so I get double hormones by the end of the week. Just praying I can hold it together at this point.
