Why do I feel so embarrassed when I lift up my shirt say in a caf'e and inject myself with insulin,I normally say to my Angel is anyone looking and try to hide the process as much as I can yet sitting opposite could be a woman breast feeding a baby,ok i have to look away because this sort of thing as not done in public in my days,it really puts me in the told codgers bracket no offence to man woman or beast,but red in the face I go just goes to show waht a sheltered life I have lived in a previous life i think I might have ben a monk,why do I think that I like long coats hold my hands together in front of me and my knees are often red from being swollen,back to injecting yourselfI have even had someone come over to me and say do you have to do that in public,all I said you have my diabetes and I will eat your sausage egg and chips,how narrow minded some people are or is it me making a specticle out of myself in public,having to inject mself 3 times a day does mean on the odd occasion I get put into these sort of situations somewhere someplace or should it be the other way around who knows who really cares.
I an from the blushing brigade where do you look when a woman opens her blouse and gets ready to feed the baby answers on a postcard to close youe eyes care of blushing blades Lapland,hope there is not such a place as I was only joking,the newspapers and TV are full of adverts for cancer,how come the screens are not full of diabetes adverts/advice and charities or do I watch the wrong TV channels,another thing which is emarrasing is when I get a hypo you all know what happens if my Angel is not about logig goes out of the window clear thinking and common sense go with it,all you want is something fast to bring your sugar levels up,is ther a machine that can fore warn you of appending hypos not sure if that is the right word, so if you are sitting opposite me in the resturant and are about to feed your baby be pre warned I will go red in the face and will not know ehre to look.
