Re: [IP] Re: - how do YOU change sets?

You echoed my questions.  Perhaps it's because of the different set (bent
needles), but only once -- when I was low -- did I take over 7 minutes to
change a set.  I don't have to deal with the canula tho, so there's really
very little difference from giving an injection.  Am I convincing anyone
that maybe the bent needles aren't so bad?   No, I don't work for the
manufacturer.   :)
Take care,
