(Yep that is an 18ga (gauge) needle.)
After injecting, I had my first intramuscular hematoma. I had a nice knot on the right side of my buttocks where I injected. It made it real fun when I sat down or walked. This was one of my bloodier injections. I started seeing stars this time also so I don’t know if it was my POTS or the shot? Sorry for the graphic photo but I want this journal/blog to be 100% real life.
