4/5/12 - Giving MYSELF an injection!

Yep, a couple of nights ago I prepared the needle because Corey was playing a game on his phone and taking too long.  I acted like I was going to do it myself if he didn't hurry and then I thought... WHY NOT?  I WILL do it myself!  So, I pinched up my tummy and stabbed it right in.  It was no big deal.  It didn't hurt, it wasn't hard to get the needle through the skin... but keep in mind, this is the EASIEST of the 5 different needles and medications that I've taken so far :)  At least I tried it out on the easiest one, so that if I ever HAVE TO give myself an injection, I'm not totally freaked out by it :)

  1. They do get easier for sure. I ended up doing all the stims myself after a while because it was easier. Now the IM injections are the hard ones to give! I think it's great you took control and learned you could do it.
