Back in college when still on MDI, a diabetic friend and I gave boluses in the bathroom at a restaurant. An older lady thought we were doing drugs.
I give them in my stomach when I'm out but avoid making eye contact with other people so if they're making faces I don't see it. I like to sit inside at tables or booths so I can shoot up--ha ha
i do that to
I just do it, in the wide open, I just dont care. If somebody is giving me the look while i'm shooting up, I look right back at them and give the "what are you lookin at??" kind of look. I got pulled over once by two CHP cars from getting called in for suspected Heroin use after being seen shooting up in my car with the door open. Red cars are easy to spot so they found me very quicly, as soon as they learned I was a insulin dependent diabetic, they apologized and let me go immediately. They knew exactly what it was.
I took a shot at a family party, not really in public. I had a cousin, who's mom is a type 1, make a joke about shooting up. His brother was also there, and had brought a new girl to meet the family for the first time. She looked a little disapproving, but that didn't last more then a couple weeks anyway, so I don't really care what she thought.
I find that if you look like you know what you're doing, look like there's nothing wrong with what you're doing, and look like you don't care what other people think, they don't pay any attention to it.
If anybody stares at me shooting up, I stare right back at them and purposely leave my insulin pen stuck in whatever body part I used for an extra few seconds, just for their delectation.
Over the weekend I shot up during choir practice, while singing William Mathias' 1971 carol 'A Babe is Born'.
