I have been wondering about this since DD (7) was diagnosed two years ago. Of course, before she had the pump, no one really knew anything unless they saw us checking her or we mentioned it. DD used to be pretty open about it, because she liked the attention. Now, she isn't as open and acts pretty shy about it. I have a friend that I mentioned about strangers asking about her pump, etc. She told me, "Well, it's none of their business." I told her that I feel if I can help educate others more about diabetes, then the better off we all will be. Also, I don't want dd to feel that it is something she needs to hide. I ask because Sunday I took dd to the restroom after we ate in a local restaurant. I took her in there because she had a dress on and her pump was under her dress. I took her in a stall to enter the carbs. While we were still in the restroom, but not in the stall, a lady noticed her site on her arm. She started asking dd questions about it. The lady seemed to know a little about pumps. At first, dd wasn't saying much, but I encouraged her to talk to the lady. Then, dd talked to her. The only time dd has said anything much about others' curiousity, she was talking about her classmates. She mentioned that they were nosy when it comes to her checking her BGs (she does this in class right now), etc. I tried to tell her to tell then about it, it will satisfy their curiousity and they will move onto something else. So, how much do you tell strangers?
