So we are three months in. We have been doing the shots with the syringes. No major problems though we have of course hit a blood vessel a few times which have caused a big bruise that makes you feel like a horrible parent, but really that has only happened a hand full of times in the past 90 days or so. It looks like we are going to the pen now. It wasn't really what I wanted but my wife wanted to do it and it does make it much easier for my son to give himself a shot. For me when using the pen it is awkward and heavy and not near as easy as the syringe. My son is only 10 and I believe my wife or I should still be giving him his insulin. Maybe the pen will get easier once I get more practice with it, they do have the tiny nano needles on them, which my son likes. So if any of you wouldn't mind sharing your thoughts on the syringe and needle I would be appreciative. Then I start thinking about the pumps. It seems most everyone on here that I have seen uses the pumps. For whatever reason the pump kind of freaks my wife out and my son is reluctant about it as well. I have heard nothing but good things about the pumps for the most part and have people say they wish they had been able to use a pump much earlier because it makes life very simple. Now on the other hand I can't see how much more simpler it can get than the syringe, but I am still new to all of this and it is hard to really know without trying. So if you could give me thoughts on that as well, I would appreciate it.
