Tips for shooting up in a public bathroom:

1. Wear a skirt and a shirt, or pants and a shirt, rather than a one-piece dress. (obviously this only applies to those of us who do our subcutaneous shots in the abdomen)
2. Your bellybutton is the perfect shape and size to hold an (opened) alcohol swab.
3. Try to choose a public bathroom that has a deadbolt on the door, so that you can be free to use the sink and countertop without anyone barging in.
4. Don't forget to bring bandaids in case the injection site bleeds.
5. Try not to yell, "sonofabitch, that STINGS!"

I try to shoot up in my car. I have never tried a public bathroom.

You made me laugh with this. Thanks, I needed it!

Dying laughing here...I've shot up in lots of places, I have to admit, (although I have shot up in the fat part of my leg on occasion when I couldn't hitch up my clothes that far!)

Thanks for the giggle - I really needed it today! Look what I have to look forward to ;-)

Hee hee, you made me giggle! I needed that too. I can just imagine the look on someone's face who happens to catch one of us IF chickas in a public bathroom, needle in hand. Oh my. A deadbolt would be a very good thing! Much love to you. And hey, I LOVE the innovative spot for your alcohol swab!!!

Wow! Why didn't I think of the alcohol swab in the belly button?!?!?! Too cool!

a couple of weeks ago, sariel had to 'shoot me up' in a seldom used hallway at the bluma appel theatre!

hmmmmm...where's the weirdest place anyone has done this?!

thanks for the chuckle, girl!

peace
