Thursday, 11/7/19, I start my injections. I'm incredibly nervous. I don't know if anyone remembers, but 4 years ago today, I nearly died from blood clots from a complication from heparin. I am now at greater risk for blood clots. It was a venal clot, which is apparently the worst kind. They were everywhere, but the biggest one was in my brain. Estrogen puts me at greater risk and having a venal clot puts me at an even higher risk. I will be starting with a low dose and I will be closely monitored. I'm still terrified. I have to do this. I will be safe. There's no point in doing this if it's just going to kill me. I have a lot of support. I'm going to make sure that my friends and coworkers know what the signs are so they can be aware before I am.
