Went to my brother's house. I ate 2 chicken quarters, 1 beef sausage, and 1 beef rib. For sides, I ate green beans in olive oil. I skipped the bread, mac/cheese, and cake. I drank unsweet ice tea.

One of these days I'll just sit at the table, inject myself in the stomach and gross everyone out LOL
The lady sitting next to me knew I was in trouble with a low because she was also diabetic. She said, "I saw your hands shake." She told me not to expect to feel right for 20 minutes.
One of the issues I have to get over is getting up from the table to go somewhere & take insulin. When I'm at a friend's house, I don't like to interrupt the conversation. I also don't like to bring the whole kit into the house with me, so I'll go out to my car & do the insulin. The car might be a block or two away. When I come back, people always ask, "Where were you...are you all right?" I feel like I made them worry.

I usually just go in to another room and inject there to spare my friends and family. They know I have diabetes but I don't want to focus dinner room conversations on me or my diabetes. That's just the way I am.

In restaurants it can get a little trickier so I really try to be discreet about it. In a way, it's kind of like when my wife used to breastfeed the kids when they were babies. At times, given the circumstance she was usually very discreet as it's a private mom and child thing but there's always someone who takes objection to it.

I'm always up for a good fight, actually enjoy it but when I'm at a restaurant I just want to eat and relax LOL

I tend to be very much the same way and try to be discrete as much as possible.
I guess I just don't advertise my condition ; there are a lot more people I know that have no clue I am diabetic than people that do know I am. So many times I am in stealth mode and no one even knows. I will admit that being on a pump does make it easier ; push a few buttons and done.
