Yesterday being Christmas I had a houseful with my children and grandchildren. Most of my family have been witness, at some time or another, to me giving myself an insulin injection. My youngest has had so many events going on that she had not seen me give myself an injection. Yesterday I was in my bedroom about to give myself my injection when she walked in. She got upset 1. because I gave the injection in my stomach and 2. because she hates needles and didn't want me to hurt. I love that she cares and tried to explain that I gave the injection in my stomach because it was easier to get to the spot because I was wearing jeans. I hate that she got upset but love knowing that she cares. Finding a balance for both her and myself is the key, I think.
