Day one

My first day of drugs started quite badly with a strong headache. I'm sure it was mostly stress about my student and the day ahead, but it improved with a bit of paracetamol.

The great news of today is that it was both the beginning of the stim phase, as well as the end of the journey for my first student in our group. She was outstanding and I could hardly bring back the tears of pride. I'm sure I won't be so good when she'll thank me in person and eventually will say goodbye to move on to her post doc in Manchester. It was a great day.

I did all my injections a bit late tonight as I brought the examiner out for dinner but I'll be a bit more organised from tomorrow onwards. I'm so tired and in bed (it's nearly midnight Irish time!) but I did have to update on the day. I will catch up on all my ICLW tomorrow!

  4. Ugggghhhh. I hate the medication headaches. I shudder just thinking about it. Hope it gets better soon. A heating pad on my neck and shoulders seemed to really help with the discomfort. Good luck. I hope this cycle goes as well as mine did.
