Is it rude to take your insulin in public ?

hi i had a conflict with a few people in my group, their saying that i don t want to see you take your insulin in front of me i m sitting here thinking is it rude or wrong just to take not even a 5 second jab. do they expect me to go to a dirty female toilet room to take it? i am confident where ever i take my insulin, why can t people just turn around if you don t want to see the needle through me? so im just asking is it rude or wrong to do it out in public?

Idk what to say in such question, I personally feel that taking insulin in public should not affect anyone as you are not piercing them any how and more over the timing of insulin and dose should be perfect sometimes you got to be in public when you have to take in time, such times you cannot run out to a toilet and take it there. I think you should not stress yoiurself listening to them.
