Jabba Jabba Doo

  • Injection #4, done
  • My technique, fail :-(
Hmm injection hurt a bit again tonight, OH thinks that when I injected so well that first day that my other hand was supporting the injection pen where it is entering my tummy to hold it steady, so will have to try that again tomorrow. Never mind though, the raspberry trifle I had later more than made up for the pain [dairy and fruit all in one pot, what more could I ask for? all part of the must.put.on.a.few.pounds campaign].

Still suffering from a little insomnia and it's irritating, no sleep = a grumpy Moon.
Tried to look up some practical tips to help and found the following in case any one is suffering the same -
  • Avoid drinking caffeine drinks (I've ditched the caffeine already)
  • Avoid alcohol for 2 hours before bed time (ditto)
  • Relax in the bath tub (hmm maybe, I'm a shower kinda gal)
  • Listen to quiet, relaxing music
  • Exercise during the day but avoid 2 hours before bed time (meh)
  • Avoid eating late in the evening (okay)
  • Avoid working on a computer before bed (hmm point taken)

On that note, I'll close my laptop and retire for the evening, good night!


  1. Sorry your injection hurt again. I find that my sides (around 2 and 10 o'clock) if that makes any sense hurt less and it's easier to do shots there. You made me laugh with your trifle ;)

  2. Sorry to hear that your injections are hurting. Mine are too but I just keep telling myself it's all for a good cause. I am having sleeping trouble too. I am guessing it's the meds. I went for a walk outside last night and finally had a good night's sleep so maybe getting some fresh air would help?

  3. sorry about the injections! I have heard they are horrible :(

    Hope you can get some sleep.

  4. Thank you all for your comment and tips.
    Injections and sleeping are both getting better now already so that's a relief.
