Black and Blue

Every time I’ve injected and every time I’ve changed clothes and looked in the mirror over the past 48 hours or so, I’ve found myself on the verge of tears. I’m ashamed of feeling so sorry for myself, but my abdomen is spotted with yellow and blue bruises and every injection I’ve given myself in the past 48 hours has hurt, either during or after, bled. Some (like the one I just did) itch! I went a week without a painful injection – what happened? I feel once again like I have no idea what I’m doing. Am I supposed to be coming in at an angle? Am I even using the right places? What is the consequence of not picking a “fat” enough place to inject? Is there some sort of system or pattern I can use to help me remember where to inject? I’m reserving some time this afternoon to research, but if any experienced insulin users out there have any advice, please please leave a comment – my bruised abdomen will thank you.
