Re: [IP] be Loud Be Proud Be Bumpy
I agree with you TOTALLY Sara - you have a GREAT attitude - I think your
mother (and usually I stand up for mothers) is wrong on this one. The
examples you gave are right-on. (I hate that term but it fits). (Dead on -
that's better) - Anyway, I can tell you are a strong person. Too bad if the
general population has to see a little tubing - the worst (or best, however
you look at it) that can happen is they ask you about it and that is when you
educate them - which is what all non-D people need, educating - about
Diabetes. When I have my g-daughter her tubing is showing because she
usually wears her pump in the little bad with velcro that, I believe, came
with the pump - her mother attaches that to a nylon strap she got off a
backpack of some kind - and she wears it around your neck crossed over one
shoulder lik e some women wear their purses - therefore, the tubing shows a
little - big deal - now my daughter wears hers with a belt clip she attaches
to her pants, jeans, shorts, so her tubing doesn't show - but you are totally
right, Sara. Keep up the healthy attitude.
