Diabetes Blog Week 2015 – Day 2 – Keep it to Yourself


Welcome back to Day 2 of Diabetes Blog Week 2015! Here’s the prompt for Day 2, Keep it to Yourself – Tuesday 5/12 :

Many of us share lots of aspects of our diabetes lives online for the world to see. What are some of the aspects of diabetes that you choose to keep private from the internet? Or from your family and friends? Why is it important to keep it to yourself?

Unlike many of the participants of Diabetes Blog Week, I don’t share much of my diabetes life online, except during DBW! In fact, I don’t often share the fact that I have diabetes when I meet someone new, unless it somehow comes up in conversation or is necessary (due to my experiencing a low blood sugar in front of them, or something similar). It’s definitely not that I’m ashamed of having the disease or that I don’t want others to know about it, but rather it’s just a part of me that, like other aspects of my life, don’t always come up in conversation.

Especially now that I use an OmniPod insulin pump, my diabetes is even less visible than it was when I used a MiniMed pump, since the OmniPod is typically hidden under my clothing. However, if someone does ask, I’m more than willing to share about my life with diabetes–in fact, I usually give them an earful (unintentionally!).
