Help me I'm going to get a shot in 5 minutes please help think of a way to not feel or notice the shot please!

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

Focus on one toe. Fully focus on that alone and you won't feel your arm

Take a deep breath, and calm down. I used to be afraid of shots too. Concentrate on something else. You obviously have either a phone or laptop with you; try doing something on that.

Hope this helps.

Bite on your sleve, think about how sick you would be if you didn't get this shot you might even die!! , Look away and ignore it.

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......

You know.... keep pi$$ing the nurse off and she will give the tip of the needle just a tiny tap on the table before she gives you the shot. It makes a little bitty hook. Not too bad going in but coming out.... not so fun!!!! That's another old nurses trick...

Just be nice to the nurse. That's all you have to do because trust me she will get pay back and the shot thing is the least of your worries.

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.

Poor thing... What's shots for? If don't mind me asking...
I had to take 2-4 shots a day of and on for the 9 years did hormonal treatments(fertility stuff), got pretty used to it and not much pain, but hated the bruising!! The after hurt more than actual shot! Bleeh..
Wish I had known about Arnica Cream-Gel back then.:-).

Im dibetic so I have to inject insulin.
Report as
That's a Bummer..:-(. Don't you use the smaller needle? Not that IT doesn't hurt..
any needle not pleasant!
Had a Girlfriend in Highschool who became Diabetic in Junior year, she just couldn't get herself to give the shot, so picked her up for school every a.m. and gave it to her,
On weekends her Mom would..
Finally as Seniors coming up to graduation she Had to get over it.. Was really tough for her, but she did .. and did just fine.
Hope they come up with a better, easier way for ya'll to take Insulin, or better yet;
A cure!!!
Report as
I feel her pain, and whole heartedly agree, a cure would rock.

A shot cures a shot... lol

I know how you feel, I had to use the pen for a while, then I found this amazing insulin pump (his name is Joe) and I never looked back ^^ You should really look into it.
Report as
How does the pump work, I mean do you have to worry about the tubes or laying on the pump itself?

Sing really loudly. I know it sounds silly but it really helps! The look on the doctors face is well worth it! Great distraction, and its over before you know it.
