    Way to go @GlitterSparkles well done. My dad taught me to do mine, it was years before I found out he used to faint afterwards.

    Sounds great! @GlitterSparkles .
    I just Googled the device you're mentioning. Looks a pretty handy bit of kit.!

    Nice find Dad! :cool: From the blurb on the website, it seems to do the "pinch up."

    Back when I was a nipper. My mum would inject me the first week & I would push the syringe plunger down.
    It was a great feeling actually injecting myself for the first time.. "Independence day." :)

    Sorry for such a late reply, but I have a tickleflex and it is good I can do injections in my arms and my night injection with ease now. Awesome bit of kit totally recommend for anyone who is interested; also if you wonder what it looks like just so you know your getting g the right thing it's a blue turquoise colour and is round it just fits on the end of any pen when a needle is on. I got mine for £15 which I guess is quite expensive for what it is but totally worth it.
