My new buttonholes are wonderful.  Needles slip in easily and no pain.  this is in direct contrast with my first set.  It was always difficult and I had pain with them, particularly with the venous.  It wasn't just just putting them in, the pain would,las throughout the treatment.  I have heard of other people having pain, and I just wanted to say that you don't have to out up with it?  If your buttonholes hurt, you may want to consider getting some new ones started.

Healthy people may look upon me as weak because of my illness, but my illness has given me strength that they can't begin to imagine.

Both of mine hurt, especially the venous. It was suggested that I could try new ones, but I am hesitant. It is suspected that they may be close to a nerve. But I am scared the next ones would hurt just as much.
