got harpooned again

Did you ever see a got-dam needle so big and so scary-lookin' that you closed your eyes when the doctor got ready to stick it in you? Did you ever sit there on a table with your shirt off and FEEL that sumbitch scraping BONE as the doctor wiggled it all around inside your shoulder joint? In BOTH shoulders???

Did you feel a kind of icy-hot sensation running from your shoulder, down your arm and then right back up into your friggin' HEART when that happened? Did you think that you just might PASS OUT, right then and there? Not so much from pain, but from FRIGHT???

Did you want to curl up in a fetal position and whine like a baby on the got-dam FLOOR when the doctor told you to put your shirt back on?

Good. I've never done that, either.

Bejus. I hope the shots I got today work for another month or so. I kinda like being able to wipe my own ass. By myself. But I'll tell you one thing, right here and now.

I've pumped up bicycle tires with smaller tools than that doc used on me today.


Blondage just had that done and says it feels like having cold molasses shot into your shoulder with a harpoon gun.

I feel for you. Hang in there!!

Ain't much fun to have them in your hips either. Knee's ain't any better. But I'll admit, the shoulder was the worst of the lot. Very glad I only had to have one of them done at any one time.

Hope you feel better soon

If it makes you feel any better I was screaming like a banshee and crying my eyes out. It took 3 nurses and my momma to hold me down for that. But I had to have both shoulders and both hips done at the same time.

By the end of it I usually passed out from the anxiety...But my mom always took me out for Mexican when we were done.
