I know there has been a lot of discussion lately about airport security and the new guidelines and the new types of screenings that show images of your body and what not. I was first going to post about the issues that I already have to go through, as well as other diabetics when going through security.
As is right now, when I get to the security gate, it’s not just taking off a jacket and worrying about taking my shoes off, but I take my computer out of the bag, take out the bag of insulin and supplies and put that in it’s own separate bin that way I don’t have to get an individual search, even though that still happens most of the time. I also disconnect my pump and put it through the x-ray machine as well because my clip sets off the metal detector, so it’s easy to just disconnect for 10 seconds then it is to unclip it and then re-clip it.
After that, it’s over. I dont have as many issues with my security checks as I did when I was using insulin pens and needles and syringes. At that time my bags were checked a lot. I’ll be taking a lot of insulin with me for this trip since it is for Thanksgiving, so I already know there will be a lot of carb intake, ha.
Well have a great day ya’ll
