Quote from gdubya  on  Injection question for those with experience thread started by DanmanBob

I'm 54. The doctor injected me in the office at .35. It hurt a little but not for long. I filled the prescription at a local pharmacy. The pharmacist asked if I was a diabetic. He suggested using the diabetic insulin needles. They don't hurt as much. In fact they're not very painful (like the snap of a rubber band to the flesh).

I've injected myself 6 times already @ .40ml. Lasts all night. You have to hit it at either 3 or 9 o'clock (this is very important). Stretch it out, watch, and avoid those little veins.

Give yourself 24 hours before the next shot. That's the schedule my physician told me to adhere to until the function returns.

Thanks everyone. I don't get on line very often, but when I do, I like to read these fine posts. Everybody seems to be friendly. You definitely don't see that on the various sports forums.
 
Have a safe & happy Memorial Day weekend and thank you to the fallen soldiers, police officers, & firefighters who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country, the greatest on Earth.
