I gave myself my B12 shot this morning. These shots are miserable as they sting. The needle is not the problem, it is the medication that burns. The darned medication is devil red lol. I started giving myself the shots in July, because it cost to much to go to the doctor every month for the shot. The worst time I had was the first time that I had to inject myself, the fear factor was there big time, but my twin was visiting and she bolstered me to do it and get it over with. I asked the doctor what would happen if I did not take these shots and he told me right out that I would die from either a heart attack or a stroke. I did not like that picture, so I have to do the shots. It stinks, but the ulturnative is worse.
