Until I began to use a CGM, needles were not a problem. (The CGM needle is a mile long and scary just to look at!)
When I was first diagnosed, the nurses gave me an orange, a vial of water and a syringe to practice with. I had so much fun "playing nurse" that I was looking forward to being a nurse to myself; I was 10. It got to the point that when I injected water into the orange, liquid was spewed out of all the other holes in the orange.
i just did that this morning-cant watch them draw my blood, cant watch the vet give my dog a vaccine! it amazes me how i can watch the needle go in when i do it myself. weird.
Wow... another totally harrowing story. I think I've been really lucky with medical care, because I've never had to convince a doctor of what's ailing me! It's crazy how many folks on tudiabetes seem to have had that same problem. I'm so glad you're doing well now (A1C in the 6s is fantastic, in my opinion)!
