I have always had a fear of needles and this afternoon, it took me 45 min. to get the nerve to just test myself before dinner. I know that the lance is just a tiny prick in the finger but I felt like it hurt alot ( it's all in my head I know). I keep thinking that if I have this much problem with testing myself, I had better learn how to care for myself pretty quick cause I don't know if I could give myself insulin shots. My hands felt and looked like I had dipped them in water when I finally pricked my finger.I have started to document my meals also. I am not sure what else I should keep track of ( besides my sugar levels). Can anyone give me some suggestions? The information I have read so far had been very interesting.
