Oh no, Angel! It took me a few months to get it right. I do the second folding option mentioned here: http://divacup.com/how-it-works/how-it-works/ The first option does NOT work for me.
My aunt actually gave me the Diva Wash because she was giving up on her Diva Cup after a couple of days of frustration, haha. She got it in, but had a really hard time retrieving it (not an issue I’ve ever had, but everyone’s different). She might have cut off the whole stem? Not sure.
I read in some you’re-growing-up-now pamphlet about tampons when I was a tween that opening your mouth a bit when you’re trying to insert something can be helpful, because it makes you more relaxed? I don’t know if it’s really true, but I think it helps me to think about it, at least, haha.
