What needle?

Let me start by saying I hate needles, shots, getting blood drawn, etc. Hate them. I was not exactly thrilled when I thought The Captain was going to have to work last night and I would have to do the trigger shot myself, but his brother worked at the restaurant for him so he was able to do it. He has the best kid gloves! Better than any nurse or tech I have ever had. I didn't even feel the needle at all. He said, "okay close your eyes" and then "okay I'm done". Just like that. Over. Whew! We couldn't even find the injection site afterward so yeah, the needle was pretty small. But still scary.

So far so good, no side effects. We go at 9:00 am tomorrow. Everything's crossed except my legs. <3

2 lovely notes from friends:

LOL! I remember the first shot I gave myself, I was sitting there on my bedroom floor crying, saying I CANT BELIEVE I AM DOING THIS. FinallY did it and just laughed at myself because it was soooo not a big deal. Glad it was painless.

I used to be a big needle-phobe (like crying and having a fit) until I turned 18 and decided I needed to get over it. Now I just tell whoever is giving me the shot or taking my blood that I don't want to see the needle, and I just look away and breathe deeply until it's done. So much better when you don't see it happening! :)

Good luck tomorrow, friend!
