I have a love hate relationship with thigh infusion sites and I have absolutely no problem admitting that fact to the masses.
On one hand, I love thigh infusion sites because they give my abdomen a break and helps me to prevent dead spots in the belly and don't really hurt too much to insert - Even on my skinny thighs.
And when I wear a skirt, thigh sites tend to be tangle free ( including the times I don't wear my pump garter) while at the same time keeping my tubing from being clamped between my pump clip or belt while simultaneously camouflaging said tubing and I appreciate that!
On the other hand, those thigh sites don't always work and the tubing almost always gets caught in my pants/jeans and belt. I have to be uber careful when going to the bathroom because I can't tell you how many times I've ripped out said infusion site when I was just about to sit on the porcelain throne.
And for some reason, after only a few days, my thigh site stop working and almost always end up getting all types kinky - And not in a "get your freak on," sense of the term ;)
Any my friend's daughter Cutie Pie, absolutely HATES when I were my infusion set on my thigh, because then she can't see my broken belly. Last night I had dinner with them and she said: Kelly, where's yoour broken belly medicine band-aid thing?
When I told her where it was and let her feel the set through my jeans, she told me: I don't like it there because I can't see it! Kel, take off your pants!
I didn't of course. Have I mentioned that she has a mind like a steel trap and is slightly bossy?
But I digress. Back to the subject of this post. I really appreciate the fact that I'm giving my stomach a much needed break and I'm a woman who loves options both in life, and my diabetes accoutrement's.
So, what are your thoughts/ experiences regarding thigh sites? Do you love them, hate them, or have you never even given them a second thought and yours truly is just being all types of silly?
