I am 32 years old, and was diagnosed with Type 1 when I was 7 years old. I am sure most of you can relate to this one cuz as everyone always asks "how can you give your self a shot "(they always picture some guy shooting up in his veins with some kind of drug or something). Well when I was 8 years old I had a birthday party at a pizza parlor/kids entertainment place called Chucky Cheese in CA. Well as I felt uncomfortable giving myself a shot in public I went to the restroom to do it in there. Well as I was filling up the syringe with insulin and a kid walked in and had the look of horror then walked right back out. About 2 minutes later a manager walks in, and asks if I was shooting heroin in the bathroom. I laughed, and told him I was a diabetic yada yada..... In hindsight I thought that that was pretty funny.... I mean can you imagine an 8 year old kid getting high on heroin at a Chucky Cheese, or better yet that a grown person asked an 8 yr old kid if he was doing heroin. My parents were pretty pissed at the time, but I thought it was hillarious.
