There’s a lot of things about living with diabetes that can makes us feel alone. Some are big, and some are little. But if there’s one thing the Diabetes Online Community has taught me, it’s that we are never rarely the only one to experience something.
I was pondering a little thing earlier today. Last week, I had a set on the side of my butt. At least once a day, that spot starts to itch and/or hurt a bit, and I think “Yikes, that set is annoying!” Only to then realize there’s no set there. Nor does the skin appear red or irritated at all. Seems like it’s all in my head. Phantom set pain, maybe?
It’s happened to me before too. I sat there, wondering if I was the only one who ever had this problem. So I decided to take to Twitter.
