I am used to needles. I have to get blood work monthly to monitor my Clozapine levels. I also had shots in the ER when hearing voices. If only that med they give me in the hopistal i could have at home, i would probably end up in the ER less often. It kicks in quickly and is quite potent.
I go from a manic, hallucinating, frightened, self harming girl back to the REAL Emmie with in 15 minutes.
If you met me when i first get to the ER i am sad to say, i would probably scare you. I am screaming, hearing voices, hyperventilating
After the shot, its like night and day, i am calm, coherent and smiling.
Its a miracle shot really!!!
