    If swiy was to miss a vein and shoot into deadspace what would the possible outcomes be? Also will you lose alot of H from the filtering process to get into the systemafter missing a vein? Basically would you not get as good of a feeling?

    Why wouldn't SWIY pullback first? I'm pretty sure SWIY wouldn't feel much, except maybe pain. But maybe SWIM doesn't answer the question? The two below me got it vvvv
    Listen to them.

    It would depend what you shot into. A couple of likely outcomes are:

    • IM shot - likely to end up with a bruise which will fade over a few days. You will probably still feel some of the effects of the shot, but after 10 minutes rather than 10 seconds
    • Skin-pop - you will have a blister just under the skin
    If you have damaged a vein on the way in, you could end up with blood staining your skin, which could lead to a small permanent mark.

    Like Matt said, always pull back and register to check that you are in.

    swim finds if this acidently happens as sometimes they go threw the vein after they have checked they get no feling of h at all just a lump and a painfull bruse so they will then inject again. also if to much citric is presant it can burn orr if you have alot of bloodin the pin as swim will sometimes get a load of blood but vein will colapse befor they get it in the blood sits under skin with citric and burns a nasty abses type thingin there skin which forms a scab that falls of they get a gamy hole which slowly heals if i dont get infected then there left with a scare. some have been very deep and taken weeks to heal depending where on swims body they are the less muscal or fat a place has the worse it is like feet and hands ect.... this has happend though cause swim has abused one veins for many yrs befor they understood harm reduction.

    Swim just missed when he shot alot of cola. a lot! mild overdose. shaking throat swelled shut couldnt swallow. sweated about a liter out. and got blood all over the place. swim thinks hes ok. its been an hour and hes feeling better. dont want to go to the hospital. swim knows that everyone will say go to hospital but hes not going to. too manny problems asosiated with that. death may be better than that. No swim doesnt want to die but he needs some help. What does he do about the miss. and is there anything that he should be doing to help myself with the overdose?
    please help

    Update:

    swim only missed a little bit but was wondering if he had to worry about an abscess or something horrible like that? Swim feels alot better now its been about two hours sense the royal fuck up but swim cant find any useful info on what to do or not to do. should swim be worried about cardiac arrest or something like that. hopefully nothing happens later on.
    This will sound nuts and maybe swim should lay off the cola for awhile but he has to go to a thing tonight with his wife. she has no idea about the kind of shit he does. swim also knows that maybe he is too dumb to be breathing this long but he would really love some input.

    thanks and again please, some help for a brother over here.:mad:

    It seems like the situation has righted itself by now, but just a general point on the matter: if you think you're overdosing don't post on the fucking internet - phone for an ambulance!

    Back on topic - missing a hit can lead to an infection or abscess. Everything injected is left just sitting under the skin, in the soft tissue, and it's up to your immune system to stop it getting infected.

    Keep an eye on the area, watch out for signs of infection. Localised signs include - increased redness or swelling, area hot to the touch, very tender, feels hard, skin looks stretched or shiny. More general signs include - headache, aching limbs, raised temperature, fever.

    As long as none of these occur, the area is kept clean, and you avoid injecting into the same place (or near to it), you should be okay. It still make take a few weeks to heal properly, but as long as there is no infection you don't need to worry too much.
