Question 16 year old cat developed diabetes

Hello. My kitty was diagnosed with diabetes 3 weeks ago. I'm having a bit of a struggle with him. He hates the needle and I feel bad hurting him. I have to give him 2 units of caninsulin every morning and night with in 12 hours of each shot. Hrs starting to run and he complains big time when I do the needle. I use a 29 gauge 1/2" needle and although the vet said I could reuse the needles 4 times I max out at 2 because any shots using the same needle seem to really upset him. I don't want this to change his personality. He's such a cuddle cat. Is there any way to do this easier? I do tent the skin like the vet showed me and vary the spot I inject.
