My little story about Clexane:
Some of you know I was scared to inject myself.
I am lucky I do not have any psychological block against it.
Day before the procedure, a nurse injected it. I was watching. She started about 15 cm far from my belly and the needle was inside. After she pushed slowly the syringe to inject the liquid inside of my skin. It was over and little bit painful for about a minute. I found it very simple. I told her I wanted to start next day.
I just was scared hoe I reach the target with my ataxia and tremor, moreover I do not see well enough with my left eye.
Well, next day I did it. The needle entered the skin only 1 mm far from my finger. It was little bit painful, so my hand started to shake, so I punctured myself twice within a second — well, more bruises... Next day I did the same mistake. I found it funny.
The third day I was in a hotel and I really wanted to do it in once, oh - it was in three times - I got scared, my hand was shaking. It took only a second.
I did not find it funny anymore. I was very angry with me. I felt so upset, like a clumsy looser. I did not even go for lunch, I did not talk with me.
The I was thinking about some new strategy. I was sure it would not work with me like that.
Next day, I touched my skin with the needle and pushed the needle slowly into my skin - no pain, I pushed the liquid into my skin - no pain, I pulled it out fast and it was painful only as usually may be one minute but not much.
Man, I was so proud of myself. Since that time I do it like that without any problem. I have less bruises finally. I should not feel any side effects - I really do not. I do not even have to go to check my INR.
I may take LDN with that. I have started 2 days after the procedure.
I am very happy with Clexane!
(Is it correct English to puncture with a needle? I am not sure.)
