Do you see those jammies folded nicely on the chair? Those are my scardy pants. I took them off today and finally went “off belly” for an infusion set.
I had a flash back to when I was a “wildwood” camper, of sitting in the stage in the barn, with a group of fellow campers cheering me on. I giggled, but was trying not to giggle too much as I did my first stomach shot. I’ve been using my belly as a human pin cushion since then.
It put the site in my left thigh, about 1 hand width from my hip. It seems to be doing ok so far. I woke up at 74. Had some OJ with my cheerios and ended up at 230. I think it was the OJ that did it. I just checked in at 150, so I guess I am coming down. We’ll see how lunch goes.
Do any of you have different absorption in different areas? I would like to use my legs and “love handles” a bit more, but I am afraid of sitting on the site or rolling on it at night. For those of you that do use your derrière, do you actually sleep on the site, does that hurt or get sore easily?
I guess it’s all trial and error?
p.s. turning 30 is fab-u-lous! I recommend it highly ;)
