When I was first diagnosed, after my exam I was taken to a room with a lot of literature. I was seated at a big round table. The doctor came over to me and asked how I was with needles. I said ‘Ok, I guess, I sew.” And I meant it. I had no idea what possible other reason he would have for asking me about needles. Then he sat down and showed me a kit with an auto injector. Well, those kind of needles have never been my favorite. I may not have been laughing, but somehow, I bet he did. By the way, I did get on to doing my own shots quite well by reading what others had to say. When I saw how hard it was for some folks, I made my mind up then and there that I was going to make it easy on myself and did.
