Dexcom why must you poke me?

Anyone else wear a Dexcom and get poked occasionally by it?  I swear I am the only dang person this happens to.  I am completely unable to wear Dex on my arm because it goes straight into muscle and that hurts like the dickens and the legs I am too chicken to even think about.  I cant even wear my pump there without incredible pain by day two.  So my Dex is always on my sides and if I even think about trying it in a place with not a lot of fat it just pokes the living crap out of me.  I swear it is poking my peritoneal wall or my abdominal wall or something?!   All I know is that it hurts and if I leave it on, it actually becomes sore to the point I want to rip it off!  I am on week 2 of this sensor and it is starting to hurt.  As if Diabetes isnt enough already, the crap I wear to control it hurts me.  Annnd now my blood sugar is dropping to the point where I feel like I am falling out of this damn roller coaster and if I dont intervene at this point I will be below 70 in 5-10 minutes.  Awesome.  I have to get my daughter and get groceries.  Even more awesome.  I HATE low blood sugars!

Through all of this I still would not give my Dexcom up for anything.  I'd cut my arm off first.
