Day 1

  • Nausea hits pretty quickly. 
  • Starting this when your “friend” is also scheduled to start is a bad idea because you can’t tell what is making you feel bad. (But if you’re desperate, then you have to do what’s necessary.)
  • Sugary snacks help with the sick feeling (e.g. a few grapes, strawberries). I’m also going to try PeptoBismol in addition to the Tums. 
  • Letting the medicine get to room temp definitely helps minimize the sting at the injection site. (Learned this day 2.)
