    Try using your third finger on the side but not close to your nail, the skin is softer and feels less pain.

    Before this thread closes :lol: if you get yourself a tube of Clinistix teststrips either online or from chemist, you can pass one of the strips through a stream of urine when you have a wee. These are not as accurate as using a bg meter but as long as the colour on the strips stays pink you shouldn't have any problems :)
