Whimped Out

Tonight was my first attempt at doing a shot manually and I whimped out! I’d had it with the Rebif autoinjector. It keeps dripping and makes my arms black and blue. I got shot training this a.m. and though I could do it. That was before I tried to do a right arm shot with my left hand, twisted upside down from how I practiced. I just couldn’t do it. I think I’ll try again next shot. A stomach shot seems like a smarter place to start!

  1. Ouch. It will get easier. I had to do my shots all manually for almost two years. As long as the cat didn’t jump on me I was okay! You’re not a whimp. The intial “stick” in to the skin is the hardest.But you can do it; when you are ready you will do it.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement! It’s funny, about 5 years ago I begged my allergy doc to let me do my own shots, but was denied. Now that I’m allowed to do my own shots, I’m falling back on the autoinjector that I hate! I think I’ll do it tomorrow night when it’s a tummy shot. Mind over matter, right?

  3. I don’t have any practical advice I am afraid. I do have empathy on offer though. Good luck next time. Best wishes from the UK.
