tips for using a diva cup for the first time

Hi Everybody,
I am a 49 year old woman who has been using cloth pads for almost 20 years. I bought a keeper a few years ago and was unable to use it, it was so uncomfortable. Today I bought a diva cup. I have a trip planned in 3 weeks and my cycles are very irregular right now and I don't want to have to take a stack of pads with me or to be washing them at the friend's house where I will be staying.
Well, I just put the diva cup in and I didn't find the instructions very helpful. I wasn't able to get it to spin freely, is that super important? I used tampons for years as well as a diaphragm and 5 kids have passed through my body, but that was all a while ago, even so, you think I should be able to use the diva cup.
Suggestions and hints are most welcome, thank you!!!!
