I don't know...

...if I should, laugh, cry or be grateful that I didn't have to pay out of pocket for all of the HCG I've taken during my IF journey.

It was kinda hard to look at all of the syringes and empty bottles of meds. Our city was having its annual hazardous waste collection and I actually remembered to drop off ours!

I don't even want to begin to count how many needles I've given myself since starting Napro...

  1. We had a lot of bottles like that too. I always wanted to say, when people came over, "Welcome to my home. Please pay no attention to the empty Gatorade bottle on the counter which doubles as a sharps container."

  2. If we didn't know better, we would think you were a well organized junkie! ;-)

  4. Craziness. I am using an empty laundry detergent container. My husband had no idea it had needles in it and when I told him we needed more detergent he said we had an entire container in the bathroom. Nope honey, that's needles. Praying for you, friend!

  7. I had actual sharps containers for my Follistim (the pharmacy always asked if I wanted one) and the bloodthiners... but they filled up pretty quickly ;)
    I like Donna's comment, you do look like a well-organized junkie!!

  8. Haha I love this! I'm new to the whole sharps thing-only my third month on HCG injections. Last month, I had the shots in the fridge and people came over and were like WHY? why are there syringes in there? :)

  9. Seeing that photo just makes my heart ache so badly for you.

    Donna's comment did make me smile though.

    Praying you have no need for sharps containers very very soon!

  10. Free hcg? Lucky girl! That stuff's expensive. Hope there aren't too many more in your future, although once they work, you get much bigger needles to bruise up your rear end with twice a week. Fun, fun!

  11. I hadn't thought of pop or wine bottles for needle disposal. But I have an idea now! :-) We have taken off the plastic part of the syringe and left the needle part only in the sharps container. We throw the plastic part in the general trash. I hope that's not illegal.
    Praying this is your LAST hazardous disposal of icky needles. (((HUGS)))
