Are you bothered about the injections

    I am 21 been type 1 since I was 5 and the injections have never really bothered me just wondering have they ever bothered anyone else i think its because the needles are only small and the needle isn't really in you for long. One thing that does bother me though is when I get my blood done in my arm for the hba1c I get so anxious and can never keep still I think that's because i know its going through the vein and I hate seeing loads of blood and they always have trouble getting blood from me.

    I am like you, i dont fear needles, i fear needles in my veins, and that was because of an experience with a crazy nurse when i was a kid I think.

    I never look either :D but I get on with it best I can, get it done and over with! it never hurts if you think about it, but it does make me feel sick lol
