This is how I felt yesterday. I got my tubing caught on a doorknob and ripped my set right out of my body. I went to replace the now dangling set from the pump, placed the inserter on a new site, let it rip and hit a nerve like you can't believe. Fire burning, scream out loud pain. The worst ever. Ten minutes later it's still burning and hurting so I decide to change the set yet again. I pull the set out and again, killer, tears in my eyes pain. What is this? It's never hurt like this before. So, I get a new set, put it in, this time without incident. But man was I soar. The rest of the night it ached where I'd hit the nerve and it ached where I'd ripped the site out with my door encounter. By the end of the night I just felt tired and beat up and well yes, like my body was a battleground where I'd just lost a round of the fight.
