Bags full of diapers
Cars waiting in line
Smell coming from the load
Ashamed it was mine
He noticed my insulin pump
Expecting dumb questions
Accustomed to curiosity
And ‘useful’ suggestions
But he surprised me
Though I took it in stride
He knew exactly what it was
But his son wears his on the other side


Type 1 diabetes, insulin pump

I have the same problem of "helpful" suggestions, except for my acne vulgaris (which I've had for 8 years now).

It's always nice to be pleasantly taken aback
