The nano needles that Becky gave the link for are tiny! We sampled them before switching from 8mm needles, and it took some convincing for Audrey to change over to them. She said that because she hardly felt it at all, she was afraid she would think she had gotten the needle in and gotten insulin when she really hadn't. After using them a few times without problems, she wouldn't switch back now!
Where is your friend getting her shots? Audrey often gets them in her arm. She props her leg up, and rests her arm on her knee and gets the shot there. By propping her arm up, it kind of bunches her skin up so there's more padding to inject into. (Sorry - I'm not good at describing this!)
