HPV vaccine = :(

Hello Friends,
The HPV vaccine that I'm receiving hurts. This is one of the few times I wish I was a boy.
It is a 3 shot series, and I'm deathly afraid of shots. Not to mention the 3 shot series costs 120 per dose, so 360 for the three (an interesting fact that my doctor just happened to leave out). But considering that it might save my life, I sucked it up and have gotten 2 out of the 3 shots. Just for you boys out there who I'm sure are quite jealous, the shot is injected into your muscle and you can FEEL IT going into your muscle. The rest of the day, you can't move your arm. It's sad, really, just plain sad.

Since it's probably more interesting for you to watch than read, here is a video I converted from youtube - specifically for your viewing pleasure. Have fun!

OMG...I soooo know what you mean. I am actually not afraid of shots because I don't think they hurt that much (I used to be deathly afraid), but these shots HURRRRRT. It felt like being punched in the arm...for over a minute straight.

Btw, that was Jasmeen. I forgot to put my name, and I don't know how to edit it.
