Love/Hate Relationship

No matter how long you have been injecting yourself, how many needles have pierced your skin, it always sucks to have to do a shot.  There it sits on my table, taunting me, warming up to room temperature to hopefully not sting too much.  I don't even want to really know what's in it, cause I'm pretty sure that would freak me out.  It's not even the needle sharpness that hurts, it's the med itself.  Grrr.

Go away, you stupid needle!  No, wait, come back.  As much as I want to never see you again, you are helping me (in your own sick, twisted way).  At this point I wouldn't be walking without you.  I guess you are doomed to be a part of my life for the time-being.  Sigh.


  1. Ouch! I haven't had to do shots yet, but this isn't inspiring me to want to. :) I am glad it helps though. Is it weekly?

  2. Hey Cathy,
    I'm pretty sure the anticipation of the shot is much worse than the actual deed (though it does sting!). I sincerely hope that you never have to do it, but know that it is bearable if you ever have to :) Fortunately, my shot is only every two weeks.

  3. Hmm I'm not on shots but I'm not a big fan of needles or medication (who is?lol) so whenever the doc takes my bloods or I have to take my pills I just don't think about it. I don't give my mind time to process it, because then I get down. Must be different when you have to do the injection yourself though. Definitely a good idea not thinking about what's in it. Maybe it's made of rainbows and sunshine :)

  4. I LOVE thinking that it's made of rainbows and sunshine! Thanks :)

    I think the worse is that I take it out of the fridge to warm up a bit (so it stings less) and then I have that time to think about it. I don't even have a problem with needles, it's just these ones.
