MY POISON INJECTION IS HERE! MY POISON INJECTION IS HERE!

I’m getting the botulism shot into my neck and shoulder today at 11:45.

Instead of having Allergan and my insurance company approve everything I’m just going to bring this swelled-up can of oysters.

Actually. when the doctor’s office called me this morning she said that it turns out for this diagnosis no preapproval is needed. So the whole second half of this nightmare was unnecessary. She boggled at this because of the number of units of poison needed; it’s a first time for that.

So wish me luck. I’m getting a few $900 injections today that may or may not give me back my God-damned arm.

  1. Wait, is this like Botox? Your arm is going to be so smoooth.
    Have you noticed Botox popping up in strange places lately? I saw an ad that said “Ask Us About Botox” at my Obgyn, My OPTOMETRIST, my hairdresser, and stuck on the door of the TANNING salon on my way to Rite Aid.

    1. It’s used for migraine, too. My neurologist did some of the original research on this stuff, I think. I bet all of the ones you mention are just the cosmetic use tho.

      1. Laura Sarkissian’s son, who has cerebral palsy, has received botox injections in the past to treat tremors and help him to better control his limbs. It wasn’t terribly effective for him, but apparently is quite useful in some cases. It is amazing what positive uses can be made of a toxin.
