Shot day

Filed under: Health, My Life and Rants — Scottie @ 14:24

I am home and I am watching the new West World.  I had 16 shots this time in my back.  Last month was 14 shots.  I did well, I only gasped and cried out once.   That maybe because I am getting them more often now.  Once a month.   My care giver, an ARNP, was grand.  She comforted me, told me how much she thought of me, wanted me not to be upset over the election.   She spends time and talks to me.  She is the best.   It also is a great office with grand staff.  They are always upbeat, which must must be hard when all you hear all day is other people’s pain and problems.   The shots I get help me and I need them.  Yet they are so very painful.   I have broken bones with less agony than these injection.  I told her I felt like a condemned man going to the gallows.    I can’t stop this, I can’t change it, I have to do it, yet I know it is going hurt so bad.   Any way, now to the blogs.   Be well.  Hugs


  1. Don’t wish to be in your shoes with those shots, Scottie. But as you say, needs must.

    • Thank, you are correct, it must be done. And while I do complain it does make my life better. 🙂 Hugs

  3. Does the pain last long? Hopefully it all gets better soon?

    We are also watching Westworld. So strange! To make you laugh – it has taught me that no matter how physically fit a human is, sitting naked on a flat surface makes a butt look squishy and flat!

    • I love West World , I but I only seen the last one today. Gods how many times I meant to look sexy in my youth and only looked squishy! The pain for the shots each last about two to four seconds ( sounds small but it is not if you actually count it out ) The worst thing is when the injected material has to then be forced into the muscles. That burns and hurts so much I can not breathe. So see my muscles are already clenched up, because my spine is so bad, but then they have to jam a needle into them ( which one doctor described as trying to insert a needle into a rock ) and next inject a liquid into that spot, it produces agony. OK thing of the injection into your body of something large that it does not want. They are forcing a needle into a clenched muscle and injecting fluid into it. Often the needle bends as my muscle is so clenched. I have passed out before having this done. I have had my heart stop when they did the spine injections . It is horrible, but the upside is I need it and it helps me for about two weeks. then I get two weeks spiraling down to where I can’t even walk or get up from bed, then these injections again. It is the life I live. I have to be grateful as I have a life, but every three to four weeks I go through one set of pain or the other. It is my life, I won’t stop living.. but in truth.. there has been days? Many hugs Thanks
