5-7 injections a day and I ALWAYS lightly touch the injection area before actually deciding on that site. Whenever I've felt a pick, I move over a hair till I find just the right spot. The few times I've ignored that process, the injection always ended up with blood, pain, lump, or bruise. Much as I try (for rotation purposes), to inject my thigh... I always end up with one of the mentioned. Using 32 gauge, 6mm needles (the smallest, thinest possible), still doesn't help. Sigh, my hips/butt will just have to do
I just don't understand how some folks inject through clothing. That just freaks me out.
