Testing continues. I have now incorporated a second brand, blue lines, to enhance my interpretation of the original subject, pink lines.
I think this looks so different than last cycle. I sort of question my grip on reality when I look at those images from last time. That is how badly I wanted it to work.
The lines are not as dark as I hoped to see, but they are getting darker.
The wait time is different too. This time the line was there almost immediately on the pink. The blue one is my thrill seeker test. Yesterday it showed a line in the opposite direction before giving me the much-loved vertical stripe. This morning, the Blue Thriller ripped right into the line I was wanting to see.
Long road to go. Funny how easily people forget. Even family didn't recall the details that I had 3 decent betas before it all started to fall apart. And it isn't like they are not paying attention. Everyone wants a happy ending.
Best wishes to anyone else who needs to concentrate on breathing out there.
