Do you have a routine you go thru when you do your shots? If so, what is it?

I didn't realize that I did until I got mad at DH for doing things "wrong" last night

This go-round, I have been doing my injections after a hot bath. I get out all of my supplies first, and line them up in the order than I need them on the bathroom counter (alcohol wipe, medicine, syringes, another alcohol wipe, gauze pad, band-aid). I clean the top of the medicine container, load the syringe, put the injection needle on, and then call DH to do the actual shot (for IM injections). He come in, cleans the injection site, does the injection, and then I hold the gauze pad on the spot for a minute in case it bleeds. Last, I put on a fun band-aid...I have Hello Kitty and Curious George right now

This time I have been applying a heating pad made of corn afterwards...it feels so good, and I have no soreness whatsoever thus far. I know that will change when I start the PIO injections, but I'm hoping it will at least make the soreness less noticeable
