-This is another old post I’ve imported from DiabetesFriends.net. Unfortunately, we lost Charlie on February 9th, just a few days after I wrote this post. I still miss him terribly.
As a diabetic, we are all very used to needles. Blood draws, finger sticks, and for some, insulin injections. How many times a year do we deal with needles? Too many.
I’ve never really thought much about it, and never found anything good in the fact that I jab myself all the time. Until this week.
Mind you, I was surprised to find out it is much harder to stick someone else than it is to stick yourself. The pain I feel every time I insert the needle into my poor little guy is much sharper than any pain from a needle I've given myself. But it's making him better, and that's the best news ever! So today, I am very thankful for needles and for my familiarity with them.
