HGH & FMS Experiment

Where Human Growth Hormone Meets Fibromyalgia

Pertinent to nothing… I’m just about to run out of syringes. I used low dose insulin syringes with a very short needle; the needle length is important for 2 reasons: the HGH is in a chamber that’s only about an inch long altogether, and it has to be delivered subcutaneously (just under the skin.)

So I went to the pharmacy for a refill, and someone screwed up. They gave me syringes with long needles—totally useless, as the needle would go past the drug in the chamber, and would wind up going into a muscle if I injected it. I tired to tell the tech that those are not the syringes I use, so he went to get “someone who knows.” The person he got decided that I was obviously stupid—the number on the box matched the number listed in their computer for my refill. If I got the short needle syringes initially, it was “a mistake.” I tried explaining why the short needles are necessary, and this look crossed her face—she understood I was correct, but there was no way in hell she was going to admit it. I was taking the wrong syringes home come hell or high water.

Would she call the endocrinology clinic and ask? Hell no, that would be too easy. Could she be nice about it? Phfft. As I turned to leave I overheard her tell the first tech “She doesn’t know what the hell she’s talking about.”

So now I have to go back to the hospital and track down someone who can get me the right stuff.

Like I said, pertinent to nothing. It just pissed me off.
