Default Knew experience-oops

I got to go to lunch in town, okay was only Chinese but I know what to eat and what to bolus to survive.
Was a b-day surprise so was pleasant.

Was running right on @ 90 sat down tested, figured bolus food came and gave my shot, I heard a chair move nearby and someone say no, no its a diabetic, no no no. But as I had hit the wrong spot and was fighting a geyser on my arm trying to be discreet it took a minute to realize someone had started over to the table. Mind you I was in the very far corner behind a wall and practise discretion getting quite good too.
The person turned around sat down while I was stopping stopping the gusher (a first) so I didn't pay much attention.
I finally turned to look and there were found very clean dressed men, all concentrated intently on their lunch when I looked.
Then the man who had started over glared at me and started up the conversation on meth amphetamine and they were hoping the prosecutors would back them cleaning up the druggies.

It dawned on me these men were law enforcement officers and obviously the young one thought I was doing something illegal I'm sure, I started laughing, then I heard the older man facing me tell him relax she's a diabetic, then everyone at the table started laughing, I looked over smiled and finished eating.
That would have made a story to tell.

Meanwhile embarrassed about the possible situation I never thought about what happened when I hit that vein.
4 hrs later I'm thirsty, could have drank the lake, grumpy miserable impatient and itchy I check my BS 300, now I realize I bled out the bolus.

How does one account for something like that? Before they hit 300?
Now I'm set for another meal can't eat because I'm so high.... crapple.

Life in my zoo strikes again lol

Thank you,
I can kinda see a surprised younger officer coming up to question, its such a small town, then the fact I oops'd,
I was laughing at the thought of going to jail for using insulin, then felt bad Ill find a bathroom next time.
Had a friend get police called in costcos bathroom for same reason.
I bet the others were pretty embarrassed. But could've been worse. Lol
the worse part was loosing the insulin and not knowing how to correct.
Moral is don't eat Chinese lol!
All is well now.
I survived, and didn't do bday cake! Yay!
Gotta learn to laugh at stuff, maybe it will save the next person from being embarrassed.

Its still snowing here, snowing down by you yet?

Happy bday. In college our appt was broken into so my roommate called the police. Back then, after an injection, I would just leave the syringes on my dresser until I felt like cleaning them up. Well I must have had 10 syringes sitting on the dresser when the officer came in our appt. of course he had plenty of questions for me as I had nothing to prove I was a diabetic, until I finally went to the fridge and showed him the insulin vials. I thought I was going to go to jail.

Isn't that something, you called them and you get questioned.
I'd think if someone was a druggie they'd hide the syringes, knowing an officer was coming lol.
In our county there is virtually no training in federal disabilities act laws, so I've been harassed a time or ten over my dog, so I expect some reaction when I encounter a officer here.
This just caught me off guard. He has his back to me didn't see me test apparently nor draw up the dose.

I'm really.glad I didn't have Ania w me that always provokes attitude.

All turned out well though glad yours did too lol.

Its windy here too, kalispell is barren of snow too just mud.
Its snow on slick ice here, or slushy.
Who would figure its February in Montana?

Wish it would either snow & get it done or dry up, breakups horrible on roads.
