Re: [IP] sof-serter and disetronic infusion sets

SOOOOOOO  glad to know that I'm not the only "slowpoke".  :-)

Last fall, I had a nurse give me my flu shot by going in slowly -- and YES,
it DOESN'T hurt as much!!!!! She said she always does it that way -- and
everyone agrees it's less painful -- so why do the VAST majority of nurses
do it fast? And the vast majority of DMers, too, apparently?
