I have heard that if you drop your bottle of insulin and it doesn't break, it could actually have splintered on the inside and small pieces of glass could then be injected into you. Has anyone heard of this?

I, too, have been a diabetic for may years. I've dropped my bottles before and I am still alive.

I have never heard that. But you know what? I wouldn't worry about it. I have had diabetes a long, long, time, and have never heard of anyone injecting glass splinters.

I have never heard of that, but am interested to find out about it. That sounds horrible. I don't see it likely to happen, but one never knows.
