Does anyone hate needles as much as I do?

As you may have read, I was diagnosed with CH and put on Imatrex injections yesterday. I had a bout last night and my wife injected me in the rear, well hip really, and the pain left quickly. My wife is out Today, and I've had 2 killer attacks. I've loaded that injector more times than Jessy James loaded his revolver, the only difference is that I CAN'T push the trigger.
I HATE needles, but thought when the big one's hit I'd be able to inject myself, but so far it's a no go. I walked around in circles for an hour wishing I would pass out, but still couldn't get myself to push that damn button!!! Even though I knew it would help! Does anyone have any ways to psych themselves up for this that may work for me?? I guess I'm a major wuss!!!
