Through my first 4 injections in 10 minutes!!.. I am so glad that is done and I know now what to expect. So my husband did the first 2 and my mom the next 2.. One leg is red and itchy in the shape of the ice box I used (we think maybe my leg was too cold when we started) and the other is just two eraser sized bruizes. Other than the really sharp pain it gives when going in, I survived. No major soreness, just a liitle in my hips.. But no complaints here it could be worse. I was so nervous going into it and the first one made me tear up a little cause it was more then I expected but once I got through that the rest hurt but weren't a shock. In two weeks only 2 shots then after that only 1.. I can't wait till its only one.
For me the upper thigh hurt less then the mid thigh.. so i think were gonna stick with the upper thigh from here on out. I still don't think I can do it my own yet. I think I might pull it out when it starts to sting. I don't like pain.

There are moments in your life that makes you and sets the course of who you're going to be. Sometimes there little, subtle moments. Sometimes, they're big moments you never saw coming. No one ask for their life to change, but it does. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.
