just wondering: bc when i was given my first syringe, i was also given an orange, and i was told that i could get used to the “feeling” of injecting myself by injecting the orange. yeah, right
and, i was not allowed out of the hospital until i could successfully inject myself. well, once i was home, and did not have the support of all the nurses standing around to keep me company, i would do a 1-2-3 count, and then stab that needle right in my tushy as fast as i could. and, at the time of my dx, i was emaciated and the needles were sooo long. ouch.
(at least this was at a time when there were those disposable needles like they still have now) (bc i know it could have been a lot worse)
anyway, point being, i was wondering about your experiences with learning how to inject yourself. how you learned, when you learned, how you felt about yourself having to jab your body with this unfamiliar weapon…
all stories eagerly awaited
