Over the years of watching my my father i have picked up the habit of doing my injections out of other peoples sight. If i was in college or out having lunch i would make my way to a toilet/ rest room or even to my car for some privacy just so i could quickly get my needle done and over with so i could eventualy eat!!
\it would be the same at family occasions where everyone knows i need to inject yet i find myself whispering "im just heading off to do my 'you know what'!!
This need for privacy has now grown into a burden sometimes (a lot of the time) and i find myself just forgetting about the needle as it may cause some dicomfort or awkwardness for other strangers in public places! and being a lazy girl, well getting up and finding a private place is a bit of a hassle!
What id like to know is : Are other Type Ones in this suituation where they feel like they HAVE TO BE ALONE WHILE DOING THEIR INSULIN INJECTION? or does it not bother you to just sit down and say "sorry i just have to do this so i can eat"
Id love to get some feed back on this!
Thank you x
