So it’s last night (Mon) and it’s starting to get late because all evening long I’ve found other things to do. But eventually I gather everything together and lock myself in the bedroom.
I wipe the top of my vial and load up a syringe with .75cc of prop. The loading isn’t as easy as I expected, prob because I’m drawing with a 25g and I’m anxious. Once that’s done, I switch needles and sterilize my right glute. Standing in front of the mirror, I unsheathe the needle and finally reach that moment of truth: pin in hand, a drop of oil dangling from the needle’s end and it looks pretty damn sharp too, and I wonder if I’m actually going to jab that thing into myself. As I move the dart closer, my mind starts talking like, “Just hang on a second,” and “You know, you don’t have to do this,” but luckily my hand keeps moving.
As soon as the pin touched my skin, I knew I was cool. No way I was going to pull back now, resterilize the site, and consider a new needle. I just kept it moving. And like they all say, it was no big deal. Did I actually forget to aspirate this first ever self-injection? Yeah. But on the bright side, it was a practically painless experience.
Afterwards I feel a little queasy so I go to the kitchen and eat some strawberries. Then it’s back to the task at hand. This time I’m going to get .80cc of cyp into my left glute. Once again, I have a tougher time filling the syringe than emptying it and I even have to throw one out after it draws in a nice 50-50 oil-air combo. Finally the pin is loaded and I lie down (my left hand isn’t dexterous enough to handle that left glute on its own) and sterilize the site. I actually expected the same moment of truth, but there was none. The needle just made its way in, even easier this time because I couldn’t really see it. And I didn’t forget to aspirate this time.
All told, it took almost an hour to hit both those glutes. But I already knew the price of my impatience (choosing not to wait 2-3 weeks for cyp to kick in) would just be some extra needlework. No complaints so far. Here’s what I’m doing:
Weeks 1-2: Test Prop 300mg/wk
Weeks 1-11: Test Cyp 400mg/wk
Week 12-13: Test Cyp 250mg/wk
Week 14: OFF
Week 15-16: Test Prop 100mg/wk
Week 17-18: Test Prop 50mg/wk
Week 19-20: Test Prop 25mg/wk
In a few days, I’ll be adding in 25mg proviron ed thru week 15 or so and I’ll prob mix in some REZ-V as well. Nolva and adex are on standby. And I will be adding in some clomid therapy near the end of the taper.
Thanks to all the fellas who’ve helped out with their advice.
