I have been diabetic for 16 years and have alwasy used syringes to inject insulin. Over the past ten years or so I have had more and more health care professionals try to entice me into using pens. I am totally against the bloody things, but I am now finding it more and more difficult to get sringes on prescription. I have also noticed over the past five years or so that the things are made more and more shoddily.

I refuse to believe that I'm the only diabetic in my local area who uses syringes. So I have created this poll to see what other people ahve to say about this.
