I'm letting my dh give me my P17 shot when we take our trip home after the holidays. I get them once a week, usually in the doctor's office. But I really can't miss a week and so one shot will have to go with us. I seriously have a phobia of needles - when it is done by a medical professional, never mind my husband, lol.

He went with my to my appointment Wednesday so the nurse could show him how to do it - and the whole time she's saying things like "This shot requires a very large needle." And "The worst thing you can do is hit the nerve." At least its just one shot. I don't know how people with chronic conditions handle this, I guess you just have to get used to it.

It'll be just fine! DH has to give me my heparin shots 2x a day. I have a panic attack trying to give them to myself! If he is nervous make him practice for a bit on an orange.

Just keep your eye on the prize! Remember why you are doing them in the first place and they become not so bad. I take shots 2 times a day now, but after the 21st it will be 4 times a day. I give them to myself (although I am a Paramedic and hold a Nursing/Emergency Medicine degree, LOL), my poor DH passes out just thinking about it. I dont like them, and they hurt quite a bit (the medicine BURNS) and I have HUGE welts and hematomas all over my tummy- but Im used to it and I dont have a choice.

well I inject insulin and you know the more you have to do something the more desensitized you become to it


I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"
