I went to try on my wedding dress earlier in the week.
When I first went dress shopping I wasn't on my pump and originally I thought that I would probably go back onto injections on my wedding day, but as confirmed in a conversation with HTB (code for husband to be - let's hope he doesn't read this post as he doesn't like that nickname) I am now pump converted and would much rather have my pump by my side when I say 'I do' than worry about bleeding after an injection onto my dress, to name just one downside of injections, I know I've changed my tune...
As I started to explain to my wedding dress designer I had something to tell her - I could see the horror on her face as she contemplated what I was about to reveal - before I could finish properly she said 'Oh you've got a box' it turned out someone who bought a bridesmaid dress from one of her stockists also had 'a box' and she had sewed a pouch into the dress. Phew, a thirty minute explanation into diabetes wasn't needed and turns out maybe I won't have to get my needle and thread out after all, I might get my own designer pouch!
