well i don't see so good myself and I just kinda "feel" my way into
it....yes, I actually put my finger on the side of the needle, and with my
finger tip find the port, and just poke gently until it slides in...my sites
are usually in places that I can't see too good any way, (under boobage
shadow, on butt,) so I gotta feel my way - no smart ass remarks please, well,
ok why not - i miss you guys!!!

Sorry to hear about that!!! what a bummer....and what a waste of a nice
meal!! As for me, I rarely, if ever, physically lift up my shirt or undo my
pants to get a VISUAL take on my site. I feel it...I give it a little tug,
or a pat, frequently throughout the day, usually rather absent mindedly, just
to make sure I haven't sweated the sucker off. I certainly don't stop my
day to think about it...When I am re-connecting afre a shower, I, again, do
it by "feel" rather than by looking at it, and I always give it a little tug
to make sure it is in there.
