Why is she giving herself as shot? What is she putting into her body?

The week after I got home from the hospital was also the last week of school. I had told some people about my diabetes, and they had told people, but somehow it never got to this one boy in my class. My mom was often at school that week and the boy had told a friend of mine, "Why is her mom always here? It's so weird."  That was understandable, I guess. but then, at  the End-of-Year pool party, after I gave myself an insulin shot, he had said to that same friend,"Why is she giving herself a shot? What is she putting in her body?" Poor guy. Weird he didn't know because his mom did.

Sorry typo. Meant to say " A shot".

I love it when people say awesomesauce lol
