1. So, I can tell you that even though my daughter is on the pump, we share many of these things with you. Namely, 3,4,7,9,10, 11. Pumps are great but we still have to tell the pump want to do and make similar decisions. Should we override and give more or less insulin? Should we rage bolus? Oops, under/overestimated carbs on that plate. Does that pile of mashed potatoes look like one full cup or closer to half a cup?
    We are in it together.
    Also, what about injecting insulin in public whenever and whatever without giving a care about what everyone else thinks? I understand not wanting to draw attention (and my daughter was on shots before we switched to a pump, so I remember it well.) but at the same time, I think that if you are comfortable and confident, most people respond in kind. It makes me a little sad hearing that you and other people feel they need to quietly disappear into a bathroom or another private spot to take care of their basic health needs.

    • I really appreciate your empathy. Diabetes confidence is hard, and sometimes the easy option is to be subtle. I’m working on it, and being involved in the DOC definitely helps me with confidence in real life. 🙂
