Stumbled across online. The bee provides cooling and vibrating sensations so kids don’t feel pain (and don’t throw a tantrum) at the doctor’s office when they get a finger stick. Here’s the link. I got it off StumbleUpon.

Seriously?

The average person has, I don’t know, maybe 10 finger sticks in their lifetime.

Try 10 a day. 7 days a week. 4 weeks a month. 12 months a year. Every year until death.

Do I need a bumblebee to soothe me when I get a finger stick?

No.

Did I need one when I was diagnosed at 14 months?

No.

Did I deal with the pain?

Yes.

Do I deal with the pain every day?

Yes.

Do I ever cry, whine, fuss, or throw a tantrum?

No.

Do people acknowledge my strength?

Rarely.

Rather, do people judge, exclude, or stereotype me for being diabetic?

Yes.
