One day we had some guest over at our house. After we ate dinner i was injecting my insulin and one of the kids was staring at me and her mother told me to explain what I'm doing. I was thinking to myself why cant you tell her yourself. Then i told the child "I'm a junkie and I'm getting my fix".her mother then looked at me and said "since Ive known you you have not said 10 words to me but you tell my 6 year old daughter your a junkie" and i just laughed. Now it was wrong of me to tell her this but i get tired of explaining it and even if i had explained it she would not have understood
Ahahahahaha. I think I've told someone that before(: my favorite way to explain it to little kids so it makes sense to them is that it's my medicine I need to stay alive. To my friends I explain the whole diabetes thing to them, and some people already know when they see my pump. My friends tell me to "eat my insulin" because one of them thought I had to EAT it.
