    I'm a great fan of injecting pens. Can't feel the needles (it's so small) and we don't look like addicts......Addicts don't use pens and they don't inject in the abdomen..(well I think they dont - don't know any drug users myself)

    injetcing in public is not a big deal here..the thing is you need to minimize your bolus level.

    I don't mind doing it in public but can't do finger pricking or injecting in front of my sister or she'll faint!

    I've seen it on many occasions so go to the bathroom if she is around or do it very discreetly.

    I used to feel uncomfortable but as times gone on, I can do it in public with ease
