It was harder than I thought it would be to jab a tiny needle into myself. It probably took close to 5 minutes to work up the courage. In the end, I think I stuck myself by accident! I was doing these practice motions .... "Ready.... 1... 2... 3.... " and got a little too close, fortunately, because it went in and the suspense was over! I imagine it will continue to be hard for the next 10 or so injections, and then maybe I'll be a fearless pro. :-)
The needle really didn't hurt too much. But afterwards the injection site STUNG and was itchy for a good 20-30 minutes.
