Thanks so much folks, I do appreciate your support. Had a nurse friend look at it this AM and she said it looked okay, but to make sure that when I put the needle in to sit up straight (or stand) and no bending or moving. Haven't looked to close, but don't think I have a black and blue mark...so escaped that part. Lantus is worth is for me, my numbers look so much better, and I have so much more energy.
** Question: What's an average unit amount if there is one? Do you store your insulin in the frig after using it? Mine says I don't have to, but I wonder if I should because my purse is in the car...and that gets pretty warm these days...winter will be easier. Thanks again.
