I can't just lift and jab as I have so many bruises and irritation marks from the injection sites already done. It seems, after talking to Fran (diabetes educator) and Charlene (my GP) that I might be having an auto-immune response to some of the injections, hence the small red welts that often appear. Fran has not heard of anyone else having anything like this to Byetta (my drug of choice - not that I have a choice).
At the moment, I have one small area that seems to be okay to inject into, it is way down near my public area, so certainly not an easy spot to do in public. I'm not sure I will ever feel comfortable injecting in public given the issues I have with my stomach, all the excess skin from my pregnancies, littered with what seems like millions of silver stretchmarks, so hanging all that out is just not a reality for me.
I am really tired of being a square peg, always outside the norm, never fitting the round hole the rest of the world seems to fit into.
Tiredness seems to be a common theme coming into these entries. I feel so tired, physically, emotionally and mentally tired all the time lately.
Today is a Dark Side of the Moon kind of day.
