Hi guys! I've been Type1 for awhile now and keep awesome numbers but for the last few months I have had major anxiety when it comes to changing my sites. I get really nervous, breathe funny and spend a few minutes giving myself a pep talk to just insert my new site. For years changing my site has never phased me but I assume now I've been getting so nervous and upset because lately I've had a lot of bleeding sites, bruising, and pain when the new site goes in. I talked to my doctor about it and he looked at me like I was from another planet. He told me that I can just have my husband put my new sites in if I'm nervous about it or scared. That's fine and all but my husband deploys a good deal and I travel alone a lot… plus I think it's ridiculous to rely on someone else for something so trivial. I've ordered a different angled infusion set to see if that changes anything. Have any of you felt anxious when it came to changing your sites? How did you get over it? Thanks!!
