Re: [IP] pump



Got to agree with not injecting in certain areas. I work with Juvenile
Offenders and I only inject when they are not around or excuse myself.
Because I still inject Humalog for boluses and R in pump I am careful about
where my syringes are.

Several years ago my husband and I were at a diner late for dinner and I
injected at the table. When we went out to the parking lot we were mugged by
three people that we saw in the diner. Not only did they want our wallets
but they wanted my syringes. After that I have always been careful about
injecting in public places.

I had a old boyfriend that I lived with for a very short time that his drug
addicted brother would sneak into our house and steal syringes. I used to
use one needle daily for my am and pm shot and during the day keep in the
the frig. I found out that this guy was stealing them but had also used the
one in the frig and put it back. I was tested for AIDS, hepatitis etc for
several years to make sure that I didn't get anything for "sharing" the
needle. Not a happy time.

So it depends on your living arrangements and work space...
