Hello all, I have been doing my own injections s/c for some months now, but increasingly am having difficuties when trying to get the needle to initially pierce my skin. I am 62, and my skin is obviously not so firm anymore (so doesn't offer much resistance to push against), I find I'm trying to push the needle in and my skin just keeps giving underneath, it's quite stressful, and I'm starting to lose my confidence. If anyone has any helpful suggestions I'd be very grateful - I'm injecting in to lateral thigh.
A second issue that has arisen is that twice now, the injected fluid seems to have pooled under the skin leaving a lump - which disperses within 24 hours - am I getting the angle wrong? I try to go in at 90 degrees. Also, if this happens does it mean I won't absorb as much of the B12?
