Ok, I just started my injections on the 7th and have noticed a few things and wanted to know if anyone else has had these...
I noticed I get extremely tired within seconds of injecting, but will soon be back to normal (within half hour or so).
Also... when my wife gives me the injection (with the autoject) it leaves purple almost black bruises, but when my nine year old daughter gives them it only leaves a raised lump (no bruising). Also, when my daughter does it, it seems to hurt ALOT less, less burning and for shorter period of time.
I have serious anxiety about an hour before my injection but always seem to be fine soon after injecting. This one I'm going to go out on a limb and attribute to all the talk I've heard about the "heat attack feelings" that seem to follow injections. I haven't had it happen yet, but somehow feel I'm going to will it... I know, that sounds really dumb... but what can I say? LOL
