Re: [IP] my first solo insertion



My first insertion was a little strange. I also followed the instructions my
Educator and the Animas Rep had written out.  The first thing I did wrog was
open the door to the cartridge chamber before I was ready to put it in and
it sounded like and old English war movie's ambulance scenes by the time I
figured out how to turn it off.

Then the insertion needle is just sliding over my skin.  Left hand, right
hand, made no difference.  I was actually trying to stab myself to get the
darn thing in.

Then I realized I had the sheath over the needle.  They didn't say anthing
in the instructions about that!!!
