This is getting all my stuff out and letting the injection warm from being in the fridge:
Here's my kit with gauze, alcohol wipes and bandaides.
First I swipe my injection spot with the alcohol wipe so it drys before I stab myself. Then I start pulling out all the other things I'll need for once I've done the injection.
And now I've put the needle together getting ready to stab. Sorry no pics of that part. It was too hard to take! This one is blurry too... sorry! Like my nail colour today? ;)
Ta da! Very last injection done! WOOHOO! So then I throw my used needle in my little sharpie box:
And lastly, I head to my counter to write in my clinical trial diary the time, date and what thigh I stabbed so I won't do the same one two weeks in a row.
Done! I can't believe I actually survived one year of stabbing myself when I used to faint at every stab or blood test I've ever done in my past. I'm pretty proud of myself for changing that part of me and doing the right thing with putting myself on an MS drug.
