One was the flu shot, given by my doctor, the other was my booster for tetanus, diptheria and pertussus (needed every ten years, btw, public service announcement, you're welcome) given by a nurse in the pharmacy/shot clinic thingamy.
Here's what's weird. The flu shot? Hurt like a sunofagun. For a couple of days. Like not comfortable. Owie owie, ow.
The other shot? Not so much. Not going in, not after, I mean, sure, it was tender and I could tell it was there and it wasn't comfortable but it hurt much much less than the flu shot had. And I could feel the shot hurting when I turned my arm certain ways, like the actual muscle that had been... injected into hurt or something.
Is there a reason for this? For one to hurt less than the other? I'm not sure, but you can bet I'm going to google it and see!
And yeah, I'm happy to say I should be good to step on a rusty nail for the next ten years.
Not that I want to or anything... just saying.
