Despite my apprehension, I found the self-injection really easy (probably helped by a generous subcutaneous site!). In fact, it was so painless that I couldn't believe I had actually done it. The stuff stung a bit, but only briefly and it was nothing compared with the pain I've endured over the past year. About ten minutes later, a strange dry taste in my mouth, but that didn't last and the Health at a Home nurse assured me that this was quite normal. What HAS lasted all day is a spaced-out feeling. I feel VERY relaxed, more relaxed than is convenient, and slept all afternoon. It felt like the only option and the safest too; I live on my own. Does anyone else experience this? I was thinking of doing it before I go to bed next time, but then wondered if it's better to move around.
