I was at work, and for the first time since I started on the insulin pump a co-worker asked, "hey what's that tube looking thing?" I responded by saying "it's an insulin pump, I just started using it about a month ago". His response to that was, "so, did you get that because your diabetes has gotten worse?"
Instantly, in my mind, I was so annoyed! But I kindly replied with "no, this thing is actually IMPROVING the way I feel. This insulin pump has made my life with diabetes so much more easy to deal with by not having to constantly take injections all day long", he replied with "wow, that is really cool, I'm so happy for you!"
After that conversation I felt proud of myself that I didn't get an attitude, because he didn't know...he's not a Type 1 diabetic. It feels good to teach someone something that they don't know much about, especially Diabetes.
