Missing The Vein

(Also check out my whole page on missing the vein )

 Yesterday when I was shooting, I guess I accidentally moved the needle before I was done injecting.  Consequentially I ended up "missing" part of the shot.  For anyone who's not familiar, missing is when you're shooting up and you push down on the plunger to inject and discover that the needle isn't all the way in the vein.  (Or in my case my hand moved a little so the needle came out while I was injecting.)  This can hurt a lot (burns like hell!) and also results in a weird lump at the injection site and sometimes can be accompanied with swelling.
   Luckily, I only fell out of the vein at the end of my shot, so I didn't miss the whole thing.  Since I've been on this sort of picture taking kick lately I took a couple of pictures:

Meth Injection - Partially Missed Vein And An Old Scar

If I would've missed the whole shot it would've been a lot bigger lump and my arm might have even swelled up a little.  I know in these pictures my forearm LOOKS like it's sort of swollen, but it's actually not.  For some reason my webcam sort of does this fish eye thing when I put something too close to it.  But anyway I'm always really careful about pushing down slowly on the plunger of the syringe when I'm injecting.  That way if I'm missing I'll feel a littel burning right away and won't end up doing the whole thing.  Ok, that's all for now.

Missed the vein today in my right hand and ended up with a large bump. Held a hot compress on it for about ten minutes and the swelling decreased significantly. Fucking sucks though when you end up wasting your entire hit and barely get anything.
