Re: [IP] Questions about insertion sets

I also ran out of sites on my tummy.  It looked like there had been a war on
my skin there.  Have you ever tried your thigh?  I was scared at first, but
it is now my favorite site.  Also, I have never used the Silhouttes, so if
you try them, please let me know what you think as now my legs are starting
to look pretty bad too.  Any suggestions out there?  I warn you that I am a
chicken and have a low pain tolerance.
