The Needle & The Damage Done

I figured that since I'm laid up at home, sharing my recent health scare with you, that I should at least show you what this awful shot looks like:

There it is. Not so bad, really. Really. It could be so much longer, like a flu shot or something. Now those are big! Oh, who am I kidding...they might not be as big, but I still hate them. For the first & probably only time ever, I'm actually grateful to be fat! I shudder to think about giving myself these shots if I had a flat belly. At any rate, I hope to be finished with these things for good tomorrow.

The damage done? No, no, you won't be seeing that.... I do have some pride, you know.

Oy. They're subcutaneous I hope. I gave myself that kind and it wasn't too bad.. but I tried to do the intermuscular and I passed out with the needle in my thigh.

Too much information perhaps.

Glad you're done, either way!!

I shuddered at the sight of that. I get woozy at the sight of needles, but that is horrible - at least to me.

Yikes! That's all I have to say. It just looks AWFUL.

Thank you for not showing me that last night. You are a brave soul. I know, you do what you have to do, but still. You get credit for having invisible balls.

You would think that with the number of times I get stuck, I would be used to it. Nuh-uh... I have to look away or I tend to get lightheaded and I have even passed out a time or two. Giving one to myself? Oooooo Noooo... you can come and visit, brave girl, if I ever need to do that!

OMG, that photo makes me clammy. If I had to do that... **dies**.
