S C A R E D O F I N J E C T I O N S So this is a random one I am due to have the Whopping Cough vaccination as part of pregnancy, however I am so scared I had it with my first pregnancy and thought I was going to throw up when the nurse did it! It's ridiculous, how can a Type 1 diabetic, who's been injecting insulin for the past 20 years or so, be scared of an injection??? Well, I am because the whopping cough vaccine, flu jab etc bloody hurt! I actually put off having the flu jabs most years because I am such a wuss, but the Whopping Cough vaccination is for the health of the baby - so I can't really get out of it! My friends and family think I'm mental when I say I absolutely freak out at the idea of someone else injecting me!
Through my whole 'diabetic life', I've only been injected with insulin by someone else once - as a newly diagnosed 10 year old! A nurse did my first insulin injection in my arm! Omg - I'm pretty sure she stuck it in my muscle, I was literally like, there is no way anyone else it doing that to me again EVER - so from that day on, I've always done everything myself.
Please tell me I'm not the only type 1 diabetic with a fear of being injected (by someone else) ???? 💉💉💉
