Day #8- Left Thigh shot. Hurt and bled like hell AND still hurts. I have my little boy for the next couple of days and I didn’t want him to see me inject but, he also can’t have me disappear. So, I rushed to get it done before he noticed I was missing. I thought his infatuation with iCarly would keep him occupied. The banging on the bedroom door and shouts for “Daddy” started immediately, even though iCarly and his Granma were with him to keep him company.

Needless to say, I rushed the shot and forgot one critical step to proper self-injection. I didn’t pinch off the 2 inches of skin, of which I have plenty. Let me tell you, for the first time since I started Copaxone, it HURT LIKE HELL. I must of gone too deep because I felt every bit of the 20mg entering my system. Also bled quite a bit when I removed the needle. Well, quite a bit for a small needle.

Ouch, well as I type the injection site is going numb so and Granma is being hit with a Whack-a-mole hammer. So I guess I gotta go.
