Exposed to chicken pox last week, and still in first trimester. As ive never had CP before I had to give blood to be tested for immunity and lo.....im not immune having never had it like I told you doc
Today ive had the vaccine and it took four needles to get it all into me. Four bloody injections. My arms are like pin cushions. Even the doc was grimmacing and saying he has never had to inject so much into someones arm before.
Feeling properly sorry for myself and next week it will all happen again (needles not vaccine!) With the MW.
Yuck! Feeling for you. I am not at all squeamish about needles but I also had an experience recently where I had to get jabbed 4 times in a row and it's really not nice. I second the thing about nurses taking blood though- most of them are brilliant at it and you should only feel a little nip. Hope you're feeling OK now. x
