Could you ask to not see the needle at all? That might be a benefit of having it done in your bum because you won't see it happening.

The 20 seconds was a max and included you getting in position etc . I wouldn’t read too much about needle size etc because it’s dependant on your body build, the dose etc. If you think it would help not to see the needle etc then ask if they can prepare it before you go in etc. Glad you found talking to the nurse helpful.

Thank you both. I hope the needle isn't too big I hope it doesn't hurt too much. Yes I will get them to prepare it beforehand cause I hate the sight of needles. I'm getting so worked up about it.

Yes, try not to worry about it x

Sorry that isn't very helpful is it! I just think it's probably best to distract.

Staying out of your room to keep you safe sounds good. I hope you have a good visit and can stay distracted. Is asking for PRN if you need it an option?


I'm including some information below about injections if you would find it helpful to read. I have put it under a hide so if it is unhelpful you do not have to see it or read it. You can ask me questions about injections if you want, but if it is better for you to not think about it or understand any of it that is reasonable too.


The following content has been hidden - Reason : about injections
Fwiw, I have to prepare my injections with a much larger needle than the one I actually inject with. So chances are also if you saw photos or read things you likely saw it with the needle for drawing up, not the actual needle for injecting. The reasoning for it being larger when you prepare is that if it's a thicker or more viscous liquid, you need to use a larger size to actually force it out from the bottle into the syringe. Then you switch to a super tiny needle to actually do the injection itself with. I wouldn't worry too much about any of that. You should be able to ask not to see the needle at all, and they should have everything prepared already. Most of the time I can't even find the place where I've injected myself when I go to put the bandaid on because it's so tiny!

For example it takes me seven minutes TOTAL to get out all of my supplies, prepare everything, do the injection, and put all of my supplies away. It absolutely takes less than a minute to do the injection itself. Pretty much all the rest of the time is just preparation. So that's a part you luckily get to avoid by having someone else do it for you! For me it's helpful to do all of it myself and understand how it works, but I can understand for a lot of folks more information might not necessarily be better.



You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.

Sod being honest with the staff. I only get punished for it. I'll just lie or stay quiet from now on.

Thanks for everyone's support. Really appreciate it.

Really don't think I can do it anymore in here though. Had PRN but struggling to stay distracted. They won't let me back in my room til half 9 after meds have kicked in x

I'm sure they're not trying to punish you, they just want to keep you safe. But I know it sucks.

What would you have done if you'd been allowed in your room all day?

Anxious because the injection needed to be ordered in and it hasn't arrived yet so I don't know when I'm having it.

Also I may have a review tomorrow with the consultant and I hate reviews and I get so anxious.

I'm also very bored.x

I'm sorry you're feeling anxious sweetie - do you think maybe not knowing when you'll have it is helping in some way because that way you can't over-think it/countdown?

I get anxious at reviews too - you're not alone, but they're honestly nothing to worry about they just want to check in with you, see how you're feeling etc. Try to be as honest as you can be.

Thank you. I don't know. I was trying to prepare myself for it but now I'm assuming it will be tomorrow.

I just feel like how can I be honest if I'm only gonna get punished. Or what if they don't take me seriously

Do you legitimately think you're being punished? Or does it just feel that way because you don't like that what is happening? Because there's a big difference between the two.

I'm not sure, maybe it just feels that way.

I spoke to a HCA I trust and she's tried to explain that it's not a punishment and why etc.

A little I guess. She just kept saying I have to work with them and not be scared of them. But it's hard. Being honest has consequences.
