AITA for checking my blood sugar at my desk when my coworker has a severe blood phobia?

I (24M) enjoy my job and have two coworkers, Megan (25F) and our new coworker James (23M) who just started. The three of us each have our own office space, but because we have to frequently collaborate on work throughout the day we are often at each other’s desks.

I am a type 1 diabetic, I give insulin and check my blood sugar throughout the day as needed. I give insulin through a pump so that’s not an issue. Checking my blood sugar involves pricking my finger to draw a drop of blood, the blood gets sucked up into a test strip that is connected to a glucose meter, and the meter displays the reading. The whole process takes like 10 seconds.

I was checking my blood sugar in my office right when James walked over. Immediately, his face went white, he looked like he was about to puke or faint or maybe both. I was like, dude are you okay? He told me that he has a major blood and needle phobia and gets therapy for it. I explained what I was doing and why it was necessary and he said it’s β€œfreaky” that I have to MAKE myself bleed multiple times a day. He told me he never wants to accidentally walk in on me checking my blood sugar again because he could pass out. I said that if I’m checking my blood sugar and hear him coming over I can call out a warning like β€œgive me a sec!”. He said that won’t work, just knowing that I’m doing that just before he comes over is enough to freak him out, and that he would be stressed that I might not hear him walking over.

He told me I should check it in the bathroom from now on. I told him that I don’t think I should have to do that and it’s unsanitary. He said another option was if I only check my blood sugar at certain times, say 9am, 12pm before eating lunch, and 4pm, that way he’d know when to avoid me. I said these things can’t always be predicted, I’ll need to check if I feel my blood sugar going high or low.

He said he understands that I have diabetes but that he also has a special need (his blood phobia) that needs to be accommodated and that he doesn’t want to have to avoid me at work and only talk to Megan for fear he might see me checking again. He said he’ll talk to HR about this and that he’ll tell them that I refused to compromise with him.

That was last Thursday before the holidays, tomorrow I’m thinking of going to talk to HR before James does, but first I need to know that I’m in the right here. So AITA for not being more accommodating of James’ blood/needle phobia and checking my blood sugar as needed at m

Why are degree holders/pursers not encouraged to skip help desk?

Something I have noticed in posts here is that degree holders/pursers (IT, comp sci etc) are constantly being told that their first job out of college will be help desk. Dont get me wrong, I am a Junior, and my first internship was in help desk(currently cloud engineer intern), but theres seem to be some culture here that everyones first job out of college will and should be helpdesk.

Just looking at linkedin, there are over 500+ devops/cloud/IT internship openings. I believe the culture here doesn't really push students to pursue these internships, these are a ticket out of having a helpdesk be your first new grad job. This will affect your salary and career trajectory.

Compared to /r/csMajors where every post is about a FAANG internship and earning 10k a month as in intern. The culture there pushes pursuing the best possible internship in college. This is a quote from a comment here "They're aware that starting as high as you possibly can is a good thing and aren't afraid to go for it. By comparison, the attitude here has IT/IS majors doing nothing for 4 years, doing tech support at their university, MSP, geek squad, or just plan old help desk. Everyone just seems to go right for the lowest hanging fruits. It seems like a mix of low confidence, lack of research, and lack of drive." They being /r/csMajors .

Virtually every internship is remote now, which means if you dont live in a tech hub, you still have an opportunity to intern for these bigger companies doing exciting work.

There should be monthly threads aimed at students with a focus on internships, where/how to apply, whats trending etc. This post isnt aimed to put down help desk, I started as a help desk intern and realized its best to pursue internships that focus on what you want to specialize in , in order to have a higher chance of working in that upon graduation.

edit: not to say getting an internship is easy, I have probably applied to over 500+ places and I am only a junior in college. It is a number/luck game after all. edit 1: this post is aimed more for students as there are a lot of career switchers where this may not really apply.

Edit 2: this post is aimed for students

Edit 3: I am not advocating to skip help desk, like I said my first internship was help desk and not only taught me a lot, but allowed to to get a better picture of where I want to take my career.
