So hard to explain to anyone how stressful it is, and its not stress about the needle and the pain (which is minimal) so much as the stress of the whole thing: what you are doing to your body, why, and the fact that you are sat at home jabbing drugs into your leg. I couldn't stop shaking and wanting to cry throughout the whole thing and my leg was desperate to spasm. I am very thankful for my super calm and reassuring husband! I am sure each day it will get easier, and I do not have to inject myself until next Monday when I am away with work.. hubby will do it until then.
