Day 9 - Sneaky D.

Diabetes has a certain way of showing up where it is not wanted. As I was putting away laundry today I found a tiny spot of dried blood on the waist band of one of my skirts. I assume it happened when I gave myself an injection under a table in a restaurant. At the time I never noticed any bleeding. I hope I can get the stain out, otherwise it will just be another constant reminder that I am a person with Type 1 Diabetes. In order to take care of myself I have to take injections of insulin. Sometimes this means little spots of blood will show up in unwanted places.

There is no cure for Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes.


If you can't see the little spot click on the picture or check it out at the Diabetes365 Group on Flickr where I added a little note to point it out (don't forget to see my pictures you have to sign in).

I don't know how many times I've done this after a finger stick. You're right; it's a constant reminder...
