Hey there Mary!
I know everything about this who process is so daunting--so I don't worry about asking questions----I know its all the world of the "unknown" right now!!
I have about 12 days left of my shots--which will complete the 60 day cycle that I have been on them. My doctor confirmed on wednesday that I do not have to get another refill.
I do have a medical background as far as training and dealing with needles--however---thats totally different that sticking yourself with a needle!! LOL
But seriously, it is not bad at all, just as Yaohua said! Its a very small needle---you just have to sike yourself up to just stick it in!!! YOu just pinch up your fat on your stomach, as she said, and make sure you alternate each day, left side/right side. Now since i have been doing these for awhile, I do have some bruising and bleeding occasionally---but I think its only b/c I have been on them for so long.
So really---its no big deal, I promise. I actually had a pharmacist come up to my room at the hospital and she showed me on some "fake skin" how to do it--I was too drugged to explain to her that I was familiar with giving shots! LOL--so i Just went right along with her---and my boyfriend was there in case he would have had to have done it---but I have given myself all of my shots myself! I was actually pretty proud of myself that first day at home! LOL!
Well I hope between what yaohua and myself had to say, that you were able to find some of this info useful----please try not to worry too much about it--and hang in there!!!1 Post anymore questions, as I am on here daily checking in! Take care!!
