Hello, I am new to this, hopefully it will give me the encouragement and knowledge I need to keep fighting. Since day 1 on insulin, my shots have hurt. It hurts going through my skin, and then burns badly afterwards. I bleed after I remove my syringe often but not always and don't know why. One time I took a shot and accidentally injected into my vein, and withing a minute or two I was passing out with sugar level of 14. Does anyone else struggle everyday with the shots. Dr. keeps saying they shouldn't hurt, but gives me no advice on how to get them not to hurt. I have done so much research and still feel clueless about this disease.
