When I FINALLY go up enough nerve to offer to try to give myself my own B12 shot, the nurse left the exam room and returned w/a brand new nice tiny skinny needle. And that was the size needle they script
ed along w/my B12. She showed me how to just push it into my thigh.
BIG DIFFERENCE between that jab in the arm w/the usual "office" size needle and that nice short skinny needle they gave me to do it myself!!! Of course, the first one I gave myself in the office, pure knee jerk reaction, I pulled it right back out before I could even begin to depress the syringe plunger. But second time around I did it. Piece of cake!!
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
