I officially hate injections!
Had my pneumonia shot and DPT (diptheria, pertussis, and tetanus) cocktail yesterday, and my arms are hurting like crazy. The injection sites on both arms feel like rocks embedded in my skin, and the pain is radiating to my lower arms, my back, and my neck. Range of motion is limited. I had to ask help to change my clothes or unhook my bra, and tying my hair into a ponytail seems to be a very complicated process now. I can’t even hold a glass, for cyring out loud! Pain relievers seem to be of no help. I feel like an invalid. My arms are totally useless. I can’t even bear the thought of having to have my second rabies dose today and my yellow fever vaccine on Friday (the day before my departure).
Anyway, I can tolerate the pain, I guess. But then again, I am strong (at least I am trying to be).
