Injecting: different styles and funny smiles (upside down for miles)
Britgirl and all:

I've been reading back thru the week about the way folks inject.  Am throwing this out:  I've always skipped the step where you DRAW BACK ON THE SYRINGE to check for blood.  The nurse who instructed was great and felt that if I grabbed a thick fold of fat there's no chance of hitting blood and strongly felt this step unnecessary.  Am certain just skipping that step has saved me lots of fretting and anxiety.  If you're confident you are at the subcutaneous level and have a handful of fat, save yourself some time and just do the deed.  

I was instructed to:  
Grab an inchful of fat between two fingers
Insert the needle 1/4 inch
Release the fat fold and inject.  

If this helps anyone, I'm glad!!!  Rebecca -Hope you guys are doing well.  

PS Salagen is the stuff for dry mouth, but try drinking gobs of water first....
