Re: [IP] IP - anyone NEVER use stomach before pump?



I am 12 years old and have a been diabetic since I was 5. I never did my
shots in my stomach and hated the thought of it.  I went on the pump four
months ago.  The first time I tried it, it took me 45 minutes before I could
actually do it.  Now, 3 months later, I inject myself in a couple minutes. I
use something from the freezer first to get my stomach cold.  This wqy I
don't notice it as much.
