Do you want to see my Butt or my Pod?!?

 I was at work talking about Diabetes to a couple of co-worker’s.  I decided to explain what the difference between T-1 and T-2.  

 Co-worker (A): “OMG, I didn’t know you are a diabetic. You poor thing.”

Me: “No worries, it’s ok. No big deal.  I have the slow onset of Type 1/LADA. ”

Co-worker (B):  “Do you take pills or insulin shots?”

Me: “I am on an insulin pump.”

Co-worker (A and B): “Oh no!”

Me: “It’s ok. I’m ok seriously.  I am not dying.”

Co-worker (B): “Where is your pump?”

Me: “It’s right here (pointing to the outside of my butt cheek.”

Co-worker (A): “So, can you move it?”

Me: “Yes.”

Co-worker A and B had a puzzled look on their face.  I tried explaining the Omnipod, they didn’t get it.  I asked if they wanted to see it. They said sure.  I closed the door.  I still can’t believe I did this–I pulled my pants down and showed them the Omnipod and the side of my BUTT cheek.  hahaha BTW, Co-worker A&B are females.  I explained the Omnipod system and they understood. 

Geesh, the things you have to do it get people to understand what living with Diabetes is like.
