      Hello Borderter,
      Just wanted to ask you how to inject properly, I still hurt nearly every time I inject.
      I always do it in my stomach as that seems less painfull. Can you advise as I would think as a phlebotomist (retired) you would know all the ins and outs of injecting!!
      Many thanks

        So sorry to miss your message Genie
        Use the shortest needle you can and just stab it in then no pain but if you do it gingerly it is more uncomfy
        My tummy is the least problem but overused it so must use legs etc now .Never used buttock as like to see what im doing LOL.Let me know how you get on
