Three in One Day

Remember the story of the tailor who made himself a belt saying “Nine in One Blow” just because he swatted nine flies?

Well – the other day I thought of him/the story as I inserted my third inset in five minutes.

I do smile when I think about my first year, few months of inserting the insets.

Now – not a big deal,  usually. Back at the beginning? I was petrified!

First one popped in and I knew it was an owie – a real owie, owie.

So I took it out. Slapped on a band aid. Popped in another one.

Oh good – no owies – Wrong! As I walked to the kitchen it hurt, hurt, hurt.

Just touching it hurt.

So I took it out. And the hole proceeded to bleed and bleed and bleed.

The third one was “the” charm

I still have a really ugly bruise from the first one.

And – this blogging thing has taken me places I never thought I’d go.

So here’s a photo of two band aids and an inset.

And finally… I love reading everyone’s posts, seeing lots of the photos from FFL. It all looked like wonderful fun with wonderful friends. I love knowing all of you. I hate that we had to meet. But, aren’t we lucky?

  1. That’s why I don’t use Insets/Quick Sets/Mios. I’ve tried them several times during my almost ten years of pumping, but I always have a high percentage of painful or site failures. Using a manual and shallow insertion of Silhouettes/Comfort Shorts I rarely have a painful site or site failure. Maybe once a year. But the insertion needle is ugly.

  2. Ugh those days are annoying. Makes ya feel like a pin’s very much trial and error to getting a good site! I didn’t go to FFL either but I hope I get to meet you someday!
