I did it! I gave myself my first B12 shot! Click to read part one of this post.
It wasn’t easy; it’s just unnatural to plunge something sharp into your own flesh. I mean, how often do you hear of a person stabbing oneself to death? You get my point, right?
My Facebook friends all wanted to see a video of me giving myself the first shot, and who am I to deny them or you? So Cole held the camera and I held the needle. I don’t think he caught my thigh at its most attractive angle, and after watching the video I realized I should have paid closer attention to my wardrobe. Just for the record: If you look closely, you can clearly see I’m wearing shorts under my bulky and unattractive orange sweatshirt.
I’m not planning on filming each shot, but I will give you an update later in the week, around shot number five. I’m sure by number five I will be super confident and nonchalant—and I will make sure to dress more appropriately for the occasion. I will also let you know if I think the B12 is working and if I’m feeling like the energizer bunny!
I would like to thank Facebook friend Cynthia and Isabel for encouraging me to create this video. They are the plunge behind my needle. And Adelaide for her professional expertise after the video when my thigh was aching (hot compress). A nurse in need is a nurse indeed.
