Most diabetics who are instructed that they must take insulin develope a fear of syringes (needles) many say that they cannot get themselves to do it.
Once they are shown how to do it, and began doing it themselves the fear subsides and they become a "pro" at injecting themselves!
Here is my question to you;
If you have to inject yourself, or a loved one with insulin on a daily basis, which one would be the hardest for you to do?
Injecting yourself, or a loved one?
I have watched the facial expressions of many caregivers as they have injected those to whom they have been entrusted to care for, and these expressions have ranged from a look as cold as ice to a look that makes you wonder if they themselves (the caregivers) are feeling any physical or emotional pain.
Then again i have seen others inject themselves as easy as breathing in air.
What's your view?
