I've now done 4 days of Copaxone shots. I feel it is going well. I have a birth defect of my left arm so we, DH and I, knew that DH would be doing the shots for my right arm and right hip. Yesterday I went to give myself the shot in my left hip and I could not see well enough to do it so I asked DH to do that also. (Side question...but at some point should I be able to do that one without having to see?)
DH has been great about it, but I can tell he feels like he is hurting me. He is not, I don't feel the needle at all and the bee sting feeling doesn't start for a minute or two. I just feel bad that he is having to do 3 shots in a row.
The site rotation schedule I got says you do arm, arm, hip, hip, thigh, thigh, stomach.
I would like to do a "clockwise" schedule: left arm, right arm, right hip, right thigh, left thigh, stomach, left hip. This way DH is only doing 2, then has a few days break before the next hip shot.
I can't see that there is much difference between Shared Solutions schedule, and the one I would like to use...but I wanted to see what rotation you guys use. I figure there is a good reason why they have the schedule the way they do....and I must just be missing something. I don't want to screw things up :-)
