I too just had my first shots (pen) last week. It wasn't that bad, the nurse gave mr the first one in my stomach and the next one in my leg. The leg hurt the worst and she said most patients prefer the leg. Not me!
I then gave myself the next two shots (pen)1 in the stomach and the next one in the leg. Wow! that last one in the leg really hurt for some reason. I will be giving my injections in my stomach from now on.
The pain was like a bee sting and was gone soon after. You can do it!
