At the weekend I went to a wedding and my brother was there. He asked about how the IVF was going and said “I have to admit I thought you have taken it better than I thought”.
Now he was quite drunk and I was sober so let’s give him some slack. He said he thought I’d be aggressive on the hormones, that I’d be hard to deal with.
At first I thought “OI! You cheeky git!”. But then I have to admit that I didn’t know how I’d be either! Being aggressive was one of the projections I had but it wasn’t the only projection.
I have to admit that the blogging has helped me look at my reactions in a more objective way because I’m writing with other IVFers in mind. I’m trying to be as honest and thoughtful (and therefore maybe mindful?) as possible.
