It's Wednesday

Since I'm sitting in front of my computer, I'm going to share my immediate post-injection thought with you...

***see me cringe***

***see me shudder***

That took a lot...to leave the needle in...to keep pressing on the plunger...it hurt! Did I hit a vein? It's hard to find a spot on my thigh that doesn't have a vein peeking through. How much is it going to bleed? Ouch. Damn.

Don't pull it out...keep pushing...push faster just to get it over with...

Done.

Ouch.

Maybe I should go back to icing the spot prior to the injection.

Icing...I have a can of icing in the fridge...that's what I need right now.

Oh dear....I hope this wasn't the RebiSMART? Sounds like you were using a syringe. Freezing the spot beforehand may help.

Some of those veins you see are actually capillaries & they won't bleed too much. A vein will hurt & bleed more. Don't worry, it will stop but yes.... ouch!

There are cupcakes in the freezer. Take one out to freeze the spot, then put the icing on it and eat it after the injection.
