Stabby, stabby

I got a phone call earlier today from the Enbril people saying that my application had been approved. They're in the process of shipping me my first month's worth of meds, which will basically end up being 8 syringes to be injected twice a week. The're shipping the thing in dry ice and they have to be refrigerated which means that there's going to be no easy way to get them to Chicago or Indy. Actually, scratch that. The company said they would even ship it there to me if I was going to be out of town, but I'm not sure it's going to be worth the bother. I certainly don't want to have to carry some sort of mini-cooler with me on the plane just to have the syringes handy. I figure I can give it a whirl while I'm still here in jersey, maybe even taking it a bit more frequently before the trip.

The only problem I have now is I really don't want to have to self-inject this damn thing. I don't like needles damnit. Having to stab myself with the thing is unlikely to make me a very happy camper. I always told myself that there was no way in hell I would ever do daily injections or whatever if I came down with some illness that needed it like diabetes or something else along those lines. Now it seems to be put up or shut up time and I'm not sure if I'm going ot be able to overcome the queasy feeling. I hope I'm not going to have to take the syringes to the doctor just to let her jab me with them. That would be a collasal pain in the ass as well as a waste of time and money.
