Ok last night wasn’t as bad as I was thinking. It hurt some, I’m still sore this morning, but it wasn’t the most horrible thing ever. I did however mess up one needle and had to start over with another one (I basically switched the needle too soon so I wasn’t drawing out the fluid correctly) but hey it finally worked and we made it. So I learned something important. Before the shot I stress cleaned for like two hours- so my home is quite a bit cleaner than normal, and I tried to have some aromatherapy going, and music, and hot tea, and I made sure to eat a small something for dinner. It helped but I think the thing that helped more was just putting on my big girl pants and going for broke. I ended up vacuuming about 10 minutes following the shot because our nurse told us that walking after helps. It did to an extent, but now it’s the next morning and my butt is still sore. Maybe I’m going to have to come to grips with the fact that my butt is likely just going to be sore for the next two and a half months….. hm. Not my first choice of side effects, but at least I’m not allergic to it. We’ll call that a win. I don’t know if the soreness will last all day or if it will dull, but we’re doing the other side tonight so here’s hoping but more walking around will do the trick!
