I gotta take this gnarly painful shot twice a day. It sucks, and I don't look forward to it. |
However, it is kinda cool because these pre-filled syringes have this new technology. After you take the shot, you push all the way in with the plunger, and this protective shield thingy pops up around the needle that it can never be used again, or hurt someone.
David figured out the first time we messed with it, that he could put something on the end of it, then hit the button, and launch something off it. We call this the "rocket". I always use the package from the alcohol pad I used to clean the injection site. We wrap it around the cap for the needle and twist up the end, then hit the rocket button.
Ever since August when I first started taking this drug, I have aimed the rocket in hopes of hitting a target. I never have hit anything. (but my rockets go farther than his)
