Re: [IP] Gonna get me some new sites

Mine seem to vary tremendously.  I've never been able to get the thighs to work though so I just use my tummy.

I think the 12+ years of using my stomach for shots and then 2 years on the pump, 99% of time using stomach area, have done its job and there are no spots left which don't give me some absorption problems.  Been having problems for several weeks and  this week I have had to changed sites 4 times in 5 days (ouch$$$) and finally went to upper abdomen (above waist) and will go to upper thighs next.

I gotta remember that it takes forever to come down from a high, but lows come quickly.  I know we have all talked about this.  Sometimes I am a slow learner.....
