I just discovered today that my body isn't responding very well to my current medication, and I'll need to begin exploring alternatives. Unfortunately, the choice with the least issues will be, in addition to the handful of pills I'll be taking everyday, a self-injection... once a week... indefinitely... similar to this:
At the moment, I can't deal with needles. In the last couple months, I've had blood drawn probably 10 times now... about 7 of those times I've vomited and nearly fainted.
Hopefully, a less piercing option will present itself next week.
