I decided to go with somewhere more reachable and inserted it into my outer thigh. I thought, briefly, about putting it more towards the butt area, but the thought of it accidentally hitting the toilet or being anywhere near the toilet grossed me out. I can be a germaphobe sometimes, even if it's not totally logical. So I went with the outer thigh area and it's been working pretty well for me, but I'm still itching to try my arm. I told my boyfriend that I wanted to try this and that I might need his help inserting it, but that I would do most of it and it would be easy. No big deal, I said. Part of me wants to see if he'll handle this okay or if he will be uncertain and squeamish. I'm not really sure how he is with seeing needles or the thought of inserting a needle. He doesn't have to do much though...the only thing I can't manage to do is pull the inserter away. I still find that thing a little intimidating! Not the needle part, but holding down the little sensor and pulling away the long inserter that seems to have a good grip. Also, I feel like every time I take the sensor out, it's a little bent, which makes me worry that I'm not doing it right, but I don't know how I'd be doing it wrong.
Any tips for how to do an arm site? Is it even doable on your own?
