Val, get a nice, healthy pinch of skin, first and foremost. Second, I always poked the skin lightly with the needle and if it hurt I moved until I found a spot with no pain. Once I found that spot, I injected slowly. I think at first it is difficult because you've never done it before, but you become a pro. Do you do it once or twice a day? I did it twice, so right was night and left was day. I am sure they told you to switch sides if just once a day. The burn can be excruciating. It will get easier towards the middle and then when your skin is stretched to the max it becomes almost impossible not to bruise. Hope this helps.
