Stupid Injection
Okay, I'll be honest with you. My last injection went poorly. Well, not the actual injection part but the "right before stabbing yourself" part. Sigh... I thought I got myself past that part pretty well. Its been weeks and weeks of injections that I could really brag about. I've had family members and friends over to see me do my injection and I did it all within 5 minutes!

This weekend? Ugh. I sat hovering from 2:10 to finally getting the stab done at 2:51. It was torture in my own head for NO reason! I don't really know why I couldn't just stick the damn needle in. I don't know if it was because I still had bruising in that thigh that I could see and was afraid to hit a vein going in again? Or that I thought it would hurt more than it does? Or that I just really don't want to be injecting myself for any reason regardless of the possible benefit? It's unexplainable but what I know I did do, is make a big spectacle out of doing my injection which I promised myself I wouldn't do when I started on this trial. Most disappointing. Next weekend I think I'll need to do the injection in front of someone again so I won't stall like that. It seems to work better that way some how. 21 injections done, 31 more to go.
