Day 4 = Allergies Galore

Had another appointment early this morning. I drove 50 minutes to the clinic, was only there for 15 minutes to have blood drawn (Estradiol levels today are 929 pmol/L), pick up four more days worth of meds (aka $2100 if anyone is interested) and then drove an hour back home in rush hour. Needless to say the commute is my least favourite part of this whole process.

Anyone who knows me knows I am a very low energy person anyways, but the last few days I have been extremely tired, not sure if that is from the hormones or not.  I know fatigue is a possible symptom but it also could just be me.

I have pretty significant environmental allergies (I did allergy shots weekly for 3 years in my late teens/early 20’s) and the amount of pollen in the air this year is INSANE.  And to top it off apparently it’s recommended that I don’t take antihistamines during my hormone cycle.  So I am pretty much trapped indoors while the weather outside is beautiful and hot.  But I don’t want to go outside, be exposed to the allergens, have to take an antihistamine, and ruin this very expensive procedure.  Praise the lawd for Netflix and all of the summer shows that have started recently 🙌🏼.

I do my fourth set of injections tonight and am looking forward to it as usual (not being sarcastic)!
