I had my second Risperdal Consta shot and chose to have it in my arm. I was given the option “arm or bum?”. I’m never saying “arm” again, ouch, not the needle itself, but afterwards, my arm throbbed for a good hour. When I had the first shot (bum) the shot didn’t hurt at all, could hardly feel it, and there was a bit of an ache while I walked out and to my car, pretty much pain free, but damn, arm hurts.
It’s helping a lot.
I’m working on a book about ECT with my experiences in it. I’ll post a link when its published. I’m in editing mode.
