Welcome to the board. You don't have to be diabetic to post here.

I don't know about the needles you will be using for your injections, but I use 29 gauge needles for my insulin. They are very fine and rarely hurt. I inject in my abdomen, and when there is pain, it is less than a finger poke.

And yes, you get used to it. It took me a while to get used to it, but now it is just a part of my nighttime routine now, no real biggie.

Hope this helps,
