I love the concept of using an ice cube. I find that some of my injections really burn. Not to comfortable..

I actually prefer to inject in the stomach area least painful of all. Great to see someone else does what I do makes me feel pleased!

I think it was great. I do most of my shots in the tummy. What was new to me was the ice which makes sense…but most important to me was to remember to breath and relax … thanks dyanne

Been taking shots most of my life, but never heard of using ice on the site first. I learned something new today…Debe

I have been doing it along these lines so far, but I'm still bruising. Maybe I'm tensing up and dont realize it. I'll try the breathing thing.
