Independent Injector

I am an independent injector! On Thursday night, I injected my right bum cheek - all by myself. I was so alone - Jason wasn't even home. The cats were sleeping. The people in the television were ignoring me.

I did have to psych myself up. I straddled a chair, and made sure that I could reach the spot - I made sure that Rebi would beep, which she does to tell me that she is ready to go. I also had to make sure that I could hold Rebi steady for the entire time (11 seconds post injection, while the needle is still in my skin, plus the time the evil solution comes down the needle...maybe 5 seconds).

This means that I am able to do all of my injections, comfortably, by myself. Arms, thighs, bum and stomach. I don't need to have "Otto" and "Manuel" on my staff anymore.

*Otto and Manuel are Jason's inner injection-personalities, designed to make injecting easier for both him and I. Otto uses the auoto-injector and Manuel uses the needle manually.

Now all I need is the larger purse that I desire, so that I can carry Rebi anywhere.

You really need a smart evening bag since your injections are all in the evening, but when was the last time you were out in the evening? Then,if you are, Jason is with you so, once again it boils down to a bag for Jason, Otto or Manuel.
