If you don't rotate you will build up scar tissue which will cause you lots of problems. It's essential to change injection sites every time you inject.

Move that injection site every time. Like pricking your fingers in the same spot is not good either. My mom takes insulin and she has a routine to move her sites from tummy to leg to tummy, always alternating as she goes. She only injects once a day, so I imagine it is harder if you are doing multiple injections per day.
