I have tried the ice, the warm, the this and that. I have never been afraid of shots or needles. The Sol IV's, no problem....blood tests, no problem......pneumonia shot and flu shots.....no problem.
Even the first few times I gave my Rebif shots, without the injector....no problem. (Then came the hives, the rash etc)
Copax I thought would be a nuisance, but I didn't see any problems. Tried the autoinjector first shot...mistake for me. Then the Wasp Sting for 10 minutes or more. After that the usual red spot, itching, no big deal. But I kept trying to using the autoinjector and the
"snap" noise became programed in me for pain and wasp sting. Then I tried to do self injections.....my hands are either shakey because of tremors or just cause I can't do it or both.
My wife has tried, bless her heart. But she is no good at this at all. Then she cries.
So, it seems I am doomed.
Hey Hairball........you mentioned smaller needles......I noticed that rebif has the smallest needles out of the CRAB drugs. Copax are...slightly larger....very slightly....
But I didn't have a problem with rebif injections............I don't know how I would get past the wasp sting and other issues, but how do you get smaller needles for a CRAB drug that comes pre-filled?
