I'm on Needle Drugs
Today is Needle day. I have to jab myself with an autoinjector once every two weeks to keep my cholesterol in check. I would be lying if I said it didn't hurt, because it certainly does. Not a lot, but enough to make it unpleasant. Giving myself needles is not my favorite of the many medical rituals I've acquired as I insist on aging, but apparently, it's necessary. When left to its own devices, my bloodstream is about 80% or 90% LDL cholesterol. They tell me that's the bad one. This new drug is proven to dramatically reduce LDL levels without some of the side-effects I was enjoying with statins. We'll see how it goes.
