This is my desk drawer at work, as viewed through my camera phone. It's a fairly normal-looking drawer--several colors of Sharpies, a ChapStick, ruler, pack of gum, plastic spoon, single-serve Crystal Light-type-product and...what's that thing there? My drug paraphernalia?
It didn't fit in the picture, but I always keep a vial of Humalog in the drawer just to the right of what you can see here. I figure if anybody goes rooting around through my drawer and is concerned about me having needles at work, then I can whip out my handy-dandy insulin bottle, and perhaps the box with the prescription on it too. I don't suspect I'll ever get in trouble. The important people at work all know I have diabetes.
What I find amusing about this picture is that outside of those of us who have experience with diabetes (or any other condition requiring injections for maintenance medications), someone could probably mistake this for a pic from some kind of anti-drug advertisement about drugs in the workplace being a hidden problem.
What do you think? Ever had an awkward diabetes moment at work?
