the needle and the damage done

My last post turned out to be an abject lesson in "don't speak too soon".

My RebiSmart was set up in titration mode - basically, you start off on a super-low dosage and build up. (I know that many people reading this blog will know all this stuff but still...)

So for the first 2 weeks I was on 8.8 Micrograms. As I said before, even that little amount caused me some problems at first.

At the start of week 3 (when I was busy hymning my freaky needle fetish), the dosage went up to 22 Mcg - work it out, that's basically a whole week's worth in one go!

Felt pretty crappy the next day, but it's still going ok so mustn't grumble. Let's see how I get on with the full-on FORTY FOUR Mcg dosage next Monday...
