Are You OK?

Here's why I find that question so infuriating, even though people mean well when they ask it after a beep, or a finger prick, or a bolus, or anything really.

It's so frustrating because, it really highlights how much they don't see. Yes, I'm okay. You're watching something I do multiple, multiple times a day. Multiple times an hour. You're watching the inner workings of my life. And when you act surprised, you are projecting that it's a burden. You're making me feel like it's abnormal, like I might be sick, implying that something must be wrong.

When in fact it's the opposite. This is what I look like when I'm healthy. This is what my life looks like. This is who I am when everything is okay.
