We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour.

Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    SWIM just had a shot and my veins are red on the surface of the skin on all surrounding veins for like another 4 inches from the shot site up my arm. Its just red along the veins and its freaky couse I have had a lot of shit happen before, but never this. its like his veins have been really irritated from the shot or something, but no one else got this from the same gear. please help, I am sure its nothing serious, but I am paranoid.
    ifSWIM wasnt very clear, on my skin, along the veins, it has gone red, from the site I shot it at and like 4 inches up my arm, and it has affected the surrounding veins too.SWIM only had the shot like 15 mins ago.

    wait a few hours, it should get less red in the next few hours, I has had this happen man it will be fine, but if it starts to hurt at all, or gets worse looking. go to the hospital.

    If it doesnt hurt (well your on dope so u prolly wont feel it), and visual signs get better, then its just a reaction ur body had to the needle or the shot or missed a little, who knows. thats all i can offer.
