No Flying Piggies!

I went to the doctor on Monday because I woke up with a really bad cough. I was thinking the whole way there, "Oh great! Now I have swine flu, and I'll miss a whole week of school or more!" The tests came back negative, so he pumped me full of antibiotics and gave me a prescription.
While I was there, I had him give me a cortisone shot in my wrist to ease my carpal tunnel symptoms. I had forgotten just how much those shots hurt. Anyway, three days later, I still have the cough, but it's better, my wrist still hurts, but it's better. I used to hate shots (just like my oldest daughter still does), but now I usually ask for them!

When I was pregnant with my first three kids, I got shots every week for morning sickness. I got desensitized, and now it doesn't even phase me to get one.

Shots don't usually bother me either. time I had to get this shot in my knee. I swear the needle was 8" long and I'm not exagerating. It hurt really bad I almost came up off of the table. The next time I got the shot I didn't even feel it. I realized that the first time I was really tensing up and the second time the doctor told me to relax my leg as much as I could. I asked him if I could keep talking to him, because I had been talking about something. He said "Sure". So I continued to talk on and never realized when he even gave me the shot. :0)
