Did it hurt??.....I'm assuming that since you asked this question over ten minutes ago about getting a shot in five minutes, that you have already got the shot and are now quivering in the corner in extreme pain......8)
Make some one hold your hand really tight, that might help. I saw it in a show once, if someone holds your hand really tight, it will hurt a little which will distract you from the pain of the shot. I shouldv been complaining last time, I got 4 shots in in 5-10 minutes
Heres the deal..... get it in your hip, not your arm if you can. Take all the weight off of the side that's getting the shot because you want your muscles to relax. Now when she puts the shot in take a deep breath in and when she put the medication in blow it out slowly. You won't even know you had a shot......
Don't worry, I know exactly how you feel. Having diabetes results in getting MANY shots. What I do is start singing my favorite song, then while I'm singing, I don't even notice the shot going in my body ^w^ Hope I helped.
