597to Peggy: starting meds!
- Feb 1, 2000Dear Peggy,
I know if you are feeling anything like I did you are feeling excited,
scared, nervous, apprehensive, and mostly glad that "day one" is finely
going to be here and over with. All the waiting, anticipating, that was the
hardest thing for me! But you still sound like you're sane so I guess
you've held up great!
They didn't have the pen back when I did the combo but I've heard it's
really easy. That putting ice on your thigh idea of Jessie's is a great
idea! Even with the old fashioned needle/syringe deal the injections really
don't hurt, but still, no pain is even better! I bet that might help with
bruising too, which can happen occasionally.
You sound like you're ready, both physically and mentally. Having a
good attitude will help you through this. That first shot will be rough but
you are strong and can do it! If you need advice, moral support, or just a
shoulder to cry on you can e-mail me, I'll be checking my mail frequently.
(I have another e-mail friend who will be starting meds too, on Saturday).
My thoughts and prayers will be with you.
Best of luck!
AND DRINK LOTS OF WATER !!!!!!
