Injecting in Public: Live Experience by Layla

by IBD Medical on April 29, 2022

‘My Diabetes Diary ’is a welcoming and judgement-free zone for everyday people to come on and share their narrative of a diagnosis that’s often misunderstood and misrepresented.

Injecting in public is something that Layla's Mummy (Keeley) is really trying to teach her to not be ashamed of. Something that keeps Layla alive is in Keeley's opinion something to not hide away.

"Layla injects in public and if others don't like it we take the opportunity to educate. I hope as Layla grows she keeps this confidence and is proud of who she is xxx".

Well done Layla.
I am 54 yes old. I got type 1 diabetes when l was 7.
Boiling up stainless steel syringes and inserting syringe into a bottle of insulin.
Then disposable syringes were introduced.
One of my friends mother when l was around 12, would not let me stay at there house because she said l was a junky.
I was sitting in the car flicking out the bubbles in my syringe when a couple walked past and spoke to each other, commenting, oh my look at that junky..
I felt horrible.
People were uneducated back then, and quick to judge.
These days l still get looked at when having my needle, but l don’t care what people think.
Good on you Layla, people still need educating, and like you l have educated lots in understanding my diabetes.
