yukichigai: zzrhardy: Yeah, shiatting, pissing, showering, shaving, cleaning my ears and nose is a day to day experience for me. Doesn't mean I can do them in public.

It's medication, not expelling bodily fluids.  Tell someone with a kidney stone they can't take their painkillers in public too.


If they were inserting suppositories, absolutely.

Her diabetes is so bad that she has to dose herself 4 times a day?
She goes to McDonalds and orders a Big Mac but has to dose herself before she eats it?
No sympathy for her.

With the proliferation of blood born pathogens I wouldn't want someone using needles in my restaurant either. To me it's also incredibly disrespectful to the other patrons of the restaurant. Go out to your car and take care of that please.

She's not shooting up, she injecting a life saving fluid into herself. If she were swallowing an AZT pill would you biatch? No, no you wouldn't.

That's extremely different.   One of my friends used to inject himself with insulin at his desk before lunch everyday.  I never openly complained about it, but every time he did it I was just thinking "Dude, I don't want to see that."  If the wrong manager or HR person saw him do that, they would probably say something.

It makes people uncomfortable.  It's not the same as swallowing a pill to an observer.


If HR saw that, and heard your reaction, YOU would be the one getting a talking to.  People with diabetes are covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act, so the company must make reasonable accommodations for them.  If HR has to choose between making you happy (because you're a prissy little douchebag who "doesn't want to see that," you precious little snowflake you), or making a diabetic happy so they don't sue the company for an ADA violation ... guess who's going home disappointed and whining on Fark about it?

Even healthy T1 diabetics can eat junk food once in a while you dopes, and I've never had an endocrinologist tell me otherwise.

We should put diabetes threads in the politics tab, because most of the responses are just as ignorant.

If the gay marriage debate has taught us anything, it's taught us that we can't ban harmless behaviors just because they make *you* uncomfortable.

Abacus9: I don't know which is harder to believe:
1) She's only 36. I'm 36, and damn if she doesn't look twice my age.
2) Someone working at McDonald's would be this stupid.
3) McDonald's would have customers who are diabetic

And, it's brought to us by the Daily Fail. That's just win-win-win all around.


These are both very easy to believe, actually. #3 especially, since MdDonald's is probably a leading cause of type II.

Mirandized: I eat out every week with a friend who must take insulin before every meal. Most of the time I am not squeamish about it, but sometimes it just bothers me to watch her jab herself with that needle. You know what I do then? I look the other way. Get over yourself.


I would give the woman in the article the same advice. And I'm not squeamish around needles. That doesn't mean I want to look at it while I'm eating. And yes, I can look away. The mother can also go somewhere at least semi-private. I'm not at all surprised, however, that the Fark Entitlement Brigade can't understand how if a single person's actions are disruptive to others, then maybe they should modify their behavior slightly. You are, after all, individual and precious little snowflakes and the rest of the world should do whatever is necessary to accommodate you and your special needs.

Cargo: /insulin vials are glass
//and can occasionally be dropped
///do you know what happens when you drop glass on a hard surface public bathroom floor?
////do you know how expensive/difficult it is to replace insulin in an emergency situation?
//the best thing for you to do would be to focus on un-knotting your panties so that way you won't have to look at the scary needles


As opposed to the plush carpet on the floor in the eating area of a McDonald's? Unless it's an emergency, take care of your private matters in private.

I have to agree with you on this one. If it were an emergency or something where she couldn't make it to the restroom then, by all means, take your shot. Otherwise, please go to the restroom and do it in a stall. Most public restrooms anymore even have a sharps disposal container for just this reason. People who are trying to eat probably don't want to watch a complete stranger give themselves an injection.

RedPhoenix122: Abacus9: 3) McDonald's would have customers who are diabetic.

Hah.  A good portion of people who are diabetic did it through poor diet.  Many people who are diagnosed with diabetes still continue to make poor diet decisions.  Case in point:  My wife's father will actually inject himself with extra insulin, just so he can eat more.


True only inasmuch as most diabetics have type 2 diabetes.
The lady in TFA has type 1 diabetes which is an autoimmune disease and has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle.

That's not how kidney stones work.


Someone call me?

You don't have to worry about someone suffering a kidney stone taking meds in public because they're usually staying home hoping they'll die.

If you ever get a stone the worst thing you can do is stay still. Walk, run, jump, stomp, do anything you can to get it to move. Once I learned that the crazy pain has only lasted 15 minutes instead of hours. It hurts like hell to stomp around but so far the sumbiatch has moved enough to stop blocking.

The last one I passed was farking huge. It got . . . Stuck. A quart of water and two beers provided the necessary pressure.

Farking Diabetes, how does it work?

Clearly, most of the people posting in this thread do not know.

Most people diagnosed with type 1 diabetes will have to inject themselves before every meal and before going to bed.  The few type 1s I know all also use auto-injectors, so they dial the dose, insert the needle (typically into their stomach area right above the waist), push a button and count to 10.  You can't even see the actual needle unless you're staring at the thing.

//Next you'll tell me that women breastfeeding should go hide in a bathroom, too.

Nogale: Holy cow. That woman is two years younger than I am and looks 20 years older.

That said, 4 insulin injections a day sounds like a LOT.


Fast acting insulin is injected at each meal and a slow acting is injected once per day. so typical type I diabetic requires four injections. I know this because I do it everyday!

So did she actualy try and say "It's insulin you sodding blight'ah", or did she just get all butt-hurt and walk down the street with her head hung in shame whilst kicking rocks?

I'm a type1 and have to inject before each meal and before bed.  However I try to do it in a private place since one has 10 to 15 minutes leeway before a crash starts.  When my kids were young it was hard to leave them in a restaurant to go to the restroom.  In that case I would inject AFTER the meal in the car, since it is hard to know how long the wait would be.  That would cause a minor spike in my sugars, but hey no regime is perfect.  I still have my eyes and feet at 52, so I guess I've done it right all these years.
