I have had type 1 (juvenile) diabetes since I was 8 years old and I've been wearing an insulin pump for the past 10 years. I've only been with one girl, I told her when we met that I'm diabetic, she would crack on me about my pump and I remember her saying it looked "weird" or was weird. I have a huge complex about it and have since we broke up and it's been holding me back from dating anyone else. I'm thinking about switching back to shots because it causes me so much anxiety.
How can I maybe just get over it, is it that big a deal?

Yes, I would. It's not a big deal at all and certainly wouldn't affect my attraction to a guy. My brother has Type 1 Diabetes and he has an insulin pump too so I know a bit about it and I think it's cruel that anyone would make fun of you for that.
You should feel happy that you're no longer with that girl, she was obviously very ignorant and believe me, she does not represent all women. Don't let your fear of that make you go back to shots. Your health and comfort is FAR more important than what any girl thinks.0
