Injection

I need some advice, I inject myself with plegridy twice a month but this time I’m so anxious. I should have injected on Friday and I still haven’t managed to do it.
Does anyone have any tips on how to get over the anxiety I feel silly but at the moment I feel I can’t do it.

@superman , you need to sit down and analyse your concerns.

Is it a needle-phobia? Side-effects? Or the fact that there’s seemingly no end to this fortnightly ritual?

Do you have a partner/family that could help you get over this bloc?

I don’t have a needle phobia I’m fine with needles, it’s due to me being so anxious and hating what my body has done to itself.
I called my MS nurse and told her I need to change medication, and said I feel depressed. She istantly said, “Plegridy does have this side affect” and told me to have a break from it.
She is going to make me an appointment with my Neurologist to talk things through.
