Ok, on my many plane trips last week, I was running a bit high and you know how that goes right? You have to pee like every minute, every hour etc.. Well, it stinks even more when you are on a plane. Anyway, the line was so long to go to the bathroom in the coach section and I noticed that first class had no line. I literally felt as though I was just about to pee myself. I had to think quick. I grabbed my bag and walked all the way up to the first class section and in a really cute flirty way asked the steward: " Excuse me, may I please use the bathroom up here? He looked at me and was about to say NO (because it was first class) I immediately started to say "I have to change my insulin pump" he says oh sure go on in! OMG! thank you, thank you. I tell him.
So, I go in there and take a little longer. I check my blood, washed my hands like three times. Brushed my hair. Yea maybe I am giving you TMI but, I needed to kill some time in there. Anyway, I get out and the steward starts talking to me again: "Excuse me, is that subcutaneous?" I am thinking to myself whoa dude, you are speaking my language! I was so excited he was interested he then asked if it checks my blood and gives me insulin automatically etc.. so I pull my pump out and show him all the buttons and tell him I wear a CGM but, didn't want to wear it on vacation. Blah blah, blah
Then another steward came over and he was interested too! I felt like an all-star. Ok then I started feeling bad about lying to them but, hey they got a speed course in insulin pump therapy so I guess it all evened out in the end LOL
so the lesson is: if you are on a plane in coach with a long line for the bathroom and really have to pee pull out your d-card pass and go straight to first class LOL tell them Gina sent you LOL
