Suddenly I feel like a marionette. In my ever present search for a good spot to put my pump I have resorted to the back of my arm. You I have very little options of fatty areas on my body so I am now trying this site out. So far it seems to be a good spot, there is a drawback. I feel a bit like Pinocchio, with a desire to have the strings cut.
You see with the pump in the back of my arm so is the tubing leading up from my waist. So I am extra careful with my arm movement. I had a great stretch last night that almost ended with a painful extraction of the needle in my arm.
I began to feel a tug and ended my stretch prematurely. So it is a whole new conundrum, the pump seems to be working there but now I have a conspicuous patch with a tube leading to it. If only I could turn that into some sort of super hero mythology. Wait maybe I can, I am insulin man, I am here to provide insulin to those in need. I am not sure about how sanitary it might be but I mean if Aquaman can be a hero why can’t i?
Anyway, I have never been able to inject into the back of my arm mostly because of lack of convenience, until recently someone told me of a cool trick by using a wall to “pinch” the arm fat up. It is moot for me at this point because the pump is there providing me with sweet lifesaving insulin for at least 3 days.
It sounds like I am complaining in the end whatever works is for the best, I jst need to be extra careful when doing jumping jacks.
