Anonymous said: About the pump during sex thing, my girlfriend is really nervous about it when I have it on. So I take it off and then she freaks out about the injection site haha. But she warmed up to it eventually. You just have to let him know that it's not a big deal and that, like the admin said, it's okay to have it off. I always take mine off.

Thanks for the input:)

Well honestly, I usually take my pump off in times like that. Sometimes I don’t early on, but eventually I do. And it’s okay to take it off. Tell him if his blood sugars go high a little bit, it’s okay. It’s also okay if he gets nervous or annoyed with it. Just let him know you support him 100%. Let him know you aren’t bothered with it. And definitely let him know that you love him.

Do sunburns affect blood sugars??

I take the lid off my needle,
and look at the insulin inside.
Just,
stare at it.
Isn’t it funny, how this clear, sterile,
hospital smelling liquid is the key
to my survival? How it saves my life everyday and stops my body from
killing itself.
How fascinating.
How simple. How easy.

And then my mind takes me to
somewhere darker. How this
liquid has now turned into a
weapon. How a little too much
insulin could be the key to
ending it all.
How simple. How easy.

I look down at my needle
and see my greatest enemy.
And the most heartbreaking
contradiction.
I see,
both life and death.
This plastic, disposable needle
represents everything I hate about
myself, all the pain and anger.
It represents my battles and
my burdens.
If only I could dispose of them
as easy as I do my needles.
How simple. How easy.
