PinkCup - Removal Issues

I recently started using a menstrual cup, having purchased a PinkCup (S) from their website.  I had no trouble with inserting the cup, but now I am having a wretched time trying to remove it.

I know this is a constantly-addressed problem, but I've read every entry in this community tagged with removal and it's still a problem.  I have no issues reaching the cup.  I am having a very, very, VERY hard time breaking the seal and removing it because I cannot seem to fold it up.  I can't fit any fingers alongside it AT ALL, so I can't get a hold of it to fold it.  I think this is my biggest problem, but I don't know how to fix it!

I've had to take it out twice so far, and both times it has been excruciatingly painful.  I end up rotating it around, squishing the bottom, fighting re-suction, and then it gets stuck.  It takes a very long time, because I'm trying not to panic.  Even when I take deep breaths and try not to panic, the experience leaves me shaking and sniffling to hold back sobs.  Despite this, I keep hoping it will get easier and trying again... but I don't know what to do.

Could anyone give me a detailed description of how they fold their cup for removal?  The comments I've read in the tagged entries didn't seem to help me out.  I really enjoy everything about this BESIDES taking it out, and don't want to stop using it, but it's just so painful.

Thank you sooooo much to anyone who can help me.
