"A story that I want to share is the time that I had to get an injection in the middle of the mall. I thought that someone might think that I was a drug addict even though I am addicted to insulin (ha ha)."

In fact, it will be better than ok; It will be great. 
You got this. There is absolutely nothing you cannot handle. Each moment is temporary and passes, savor it no matter what it is..
