[IPk] Infusion set

Ok, so i changed my infusion site because it felt tender and it really stung
when insulin went in.... but i changed it and it still is the same. Throughout
the saline trial this has never happened, i don't understand but it doesn't
feel very nice at all, i don't even want to eat anything to avoid boluses.>
