Well today is the day I finally plucked up the courage to go to the needle exchange to collect some needles / syringes ready for my first cycle. Was supposed to be getting my first lot with my mate but he's working day shifts all week so can't make it so I thought bugger it I'll go on my todd. Researched the times for needle exchanges and on a Tuesday it's 13.00 till 16.30. Arrived here in good time, got here about 12.55 and sat in the car pretty nervous. Clock got to around 13.05 and after about 15 pretty shady looking characters who i could only describe as smack rats had gone in, I finally decided "F&#k it" and went and rang the intercom thing and they let me in. Bloke at reception asked what I wanted and I told him but he then tells me there won't be anyone to see to me till 14.00. He seemed pretty friendly but I couldn't help but feel the lowest of the low stood there asking for some pins. I know it sounds retarded and it's pretty unlikely but I can't help imagining some random smack head kicking off and attacking me or someone with one of their needles lol. I think it's quite a scary place and really don't like it. But needs must eh?! So anyway I'm just say in my car once again waiting for the clock to get to 14.00 bored outta my head. Anyone else want to share their experiences when they first went to the needle exchange?
