I'm a wuss too,I get the other two shots this Sunday,so I'll let ya know if it was as bad,but boy did you describe it to a tee!! I got the shots in my legs and it felt exactly like you said!! I can give other people shots,but not to myself,the doctor I work with can't either! I will try to keep it at room temp for a while,then do it,aggghhh!!! So,after Sunday,"just" one every two weeks,the four definately was horrible!!!
