Yesterday I happened to look down at my thigh and I noticed this . . .
Instead of tucking my tubing into my waist band like I usually do, I had left it snaking down the leg of my pants. And when I sat a certain way, it was quite noticeable. It looked almost like a bow hidden beneath my jeans. It made me laugh.
And then I wondered what someone who doesn’t know anything about tubing and insulin pumps and diabetes would think if they saw my leg. What exactly would they think I stashed in the leg of my pants? And I didn’t feel embarrassed or self-conscious in the least. Oh no, instead I laughed even harder at the absurdity of it all. Because after all, life with diabetes isn’t all bad.
