      Tried Amovig, didn't agree, now have medical botox one every 3 months and noticed a big change :)

      I took one for a while and the anxiety was really difficult for me the first few times. Taking a deep breath and releasing it as I press the auto injector helped, it also helped me do affirmations beforehand. I’ve heard of people taking cold showers to help themselves remember they can do hard things; however I’m in constant pain so to me just existing is me doing hard things 😂😅 Relax the muscles in whatever area you choose to inject into to help lessen the pain of the needle. If you continue to struggle with it, it’s worth mentioning to your doctor. Sending all the love and confidence your way 💕
