Response to keeping cell phones off in theatres

I fully agree that phones should be kept off during theatre performances and in movie theatres, however people need to be aware that diabetes insulin pumps look very similar and as much as my wife would love to not have to deliver insulin into her system to not slip into a coma, she has no choice. Please be aware that her device may look like a fat little cellphone (which does beep once when insulin is delivered and there is no option to turn off sound) but now you know it’s not.

Since you can't go out in public without causing scenes, perhaps you need to reconsider the places you go to. It's not like we're all here for you and your wife's benefit you know.

Perhaps she should excuse herself to the restroom for her dose of insulin?

@Anonymous, It's not for the wife's benefit, it's so she can STAY ALIVE, you dimwit.

And @Solution, the restroom is quite a dirty place, especially public ones!
I NEVER do my insulin/test my blood sugar levels in a restroom.

I've had Diabetes for 21 years and I am still shocked at how naive people are, must be nice to be perfectly healthy.

Causing a scene?!

Are you serious? But maybe you're right - perhaps she should just stay away of any activity where she might be (at most) a minor annoyance to others while receiving her life saving medication.

Go ahead and use your insulin pump at the theater. Those of us without such an intense sense of entitelmemt will not begrudge you this.

A vegan diet can manage or reverse type 2 diabetes. Now bring on the gate...

And Type 1 Diabetics, what shall they do?
(The restroom is a dirty place and I never test my sugar levels or do a syringe there)
