[IP] help me, gushing blood

Christina, two things may help. First, remove the needle before taking off 
 the back paper. Otherwise you are moving that needle around once it is under
skin. Make sure you insert the needle in a smooth motion and don't twist or 
stop  and start. Sometimes gushers just happen, and they can be scary. Put 
pressure on the site as you remove the cannula, and you can avoid this.
