Changing It Up
For several years now, I’ve been using my stomach area for infusion sites. I decided to give the it a break as I’ve been having difficulty finding a location that didn’t hurt or bleed while inserting.

For the past week I returned to the hip area that I wore out a decade ago. I use a small needle set (Sure-T) and change it every 3 days. Twice now, it’s gone effortlessly in each hip. Felt good to not fight for a piece of real estate that wasn’t sensitive. It felt like virgin soil.

I’ll continue for another week below the waist by moving to the upper quad area. Will be interesting to see how this works while cycling.
