The other day we were watching a basketball game at school and my D was sitting next to me with a friend of hers and one of the friend's friends. I over heard the two 2nd grade friends talking: ... F: "she has diabetes" FF: "Can she eat candy?" F: "Yes, but only at certain times" ... We have always been very open about her having D. She gets her pricks and pokes where and when she needs them and we treat it as non-chalantly as possible. This is the first time that I wondered if my daughter felt uncomfortable and it wasn't not even because she was getting a poke but simply because she was not eating candy at that moment. So I was wondering how you all handle being in the "public eye"? How open you are? I know for example that my sister in law has D and she always does everything she does in private. Then I saw a thread where a young girl did not want to wear her pump... So basically I am just hoping to learn how you all handle this kind of thing and to get some insight into various thoughts you have. I expect it is different for many people and I just want to understand.
