Hi Lolly, I used to have five injections a day and I would only change the needle when the vial was finished. As it was only me using the needle I never had a problem. Yes I’ve seen the pictures of the needle end turning up but I always worked on the fact that if the needle didn’t hurt when it went in and out then it was fine. I’m like it with the lancet device as well! i don’t know if you can still get them but you did use to be able to have syringes drawn up for you. May be worth asking? I did have another device which was easier to hold and had a count down reminder on it from when you last injected (my memory was dreadful in the early days of looking after my 3 children under 3!) Ask your DSN what options are available to you. Let me know if you need the name of the injecting device I’ll dig it out of my archive cupboard.
