I still remember when my friend, who is my best friend now, found out I have diabetes.
I was about 17 and hanging out in my bedroom with my two good buds watching a movie. I was starting to feel a low so I excused myself and went to the kitchen and prepared something little to eat. All of a sudden I heard a yell from the back room. I opened the door to see Brandon laughing while Donny looked quite disturbed. Donny had no idea that I had diabetes. Donny had grabbed my insulin pen, which looked like a fancy silver business pen, and was checking it out. He had never seen such a high tech pen and was trying to figure out how to use it when he shot a dose of insulin into the air. Donny freaked! You see, Donny is a big super tough manly man and he's deathly afraid of needles. Brandon and I laughed hard and eventually Donny did too. Brandon said the look on Donny's face was priceless as he shot that does of insulin into the air and realized this was no ink pen!
