Went back for more inoculations yesterday. I got two shots, and did not even feel lightheaded. I think the secret is compartmentalization. I managed to distract myself long enough not to freak myself out about having a needle stuck in my arm.
A different person gave me the shots this time, but Elaine stuck her head in the office to say hi, and to see how I was doing. More reason to ask for Elaine if you ever need to go to that clinic. She’s a gem.
I guess the upshot of my needle aversion is that it will be very difficult for me to ever become a heroin addict.
