Last night I gave myself my first PIO shot. This morning I made my first pot of decaf coffee. Honestly, making decaf was harder. I cheated with the PIO. Instead of using the 22 gauge needles (0.72 mm in diameter) that I was told to use, I used a 25 gauge needle (0.51 mm). That’s what I used for my IM trigger shot with IVF, so I figured I’d give it a try. It didn’t hurt. At all. But it took FOREVER to inject that stuff. I will try the 22G needle tonight (which is still smaller than the needle used for blood draws). If I can get through the injection more quickly, I’m willing to put up with a bit more pain.
As for the coffee, I don’t think I can make decaf worth drinking. I’m willing to give it a try though. I’m willing to give almost anything a try this time around.
