My Tail.

Do you know the source of this image? Please let me know so I can link!

“Miss!  Your tail!” the lady behind me called out, touching my elbow.

I looked behind me and sure enough, my insulin pump tubing – my tail – had come loose from underneath my shirt and wrapped itself around the metal shelving at CVS.  I was two steps away from pulling out my site, three steps away from jacking up the shelf of Maybelline cosmetics.

“Thank you!”  I said, walking back quickly and disengaging my tubing from the shelf, not before knocking over a display of wide-eyed Beanie Boos.

Awkwardness.  Maybe she’s born with it.  Maybe it’s diabetes.

    Thanks for the laugh. That’s great. That poor woman didn’t know what to call it. I give her full points.

    And my daughter just got an “Austin” this weekend.

    Interesting Tale of the Tail. My pumps mortal enemy, doorknobs, will be the first thing I get my revenge on when diabetes is cured. I can hear the escutcheon plates rattling right now in fear.

    Perfect time to give a shout out for the awesome Omnipod! Our family loves it!
    Can’t imagine tubing or why anybody would choose to have tubing over no tubing?
    Not to start a riot, I know everyone makes their own personal choice for their own reasons, but I’m just saying…… Glad your tubing made it out unscathed and still attached 🙂

    I totally see that commercial now, but with the image you describe.. as you turn around and wink at the camera with your “tail” hanging out.
