where people touched by diabetes help each other.

The other day I was in the shower and notice my insulin site was full of blood instead of insulin, why is this?

I think it's because sometimes when you inject a site it bursts a small blood vessel. It's happened to me a few times before too. No need to worry :)

Here's an explanation I got from a friend: "Hot water (heat) increases circulation of the blood, and can result in release of blood from a tiny blood vessel if it is near your site. No worries"
