One tool that can be very helpful is the Buzzy. What is a Buzzy? As they explain on their site,
“Buzzy is an award-winning physiologic pain blocker. Using cold and vibration, Buzzy is proven to naturally block unpleasant sensations on contact.”
When we found out a year ago that Monkey was going to be starting Methotrexate via injection the first thing we did was purchase a Buzzy. Thankfully now he is able to take his medication orally but we’ve held on to Buzzy just incase we might need it again in the future.
