I always put a little bit of myself in any character I create in a game. Sometimes I take it too far. You know that fanny pack the Rebel Alliance troopers wear? I always pretend that that is where my soldier keeps his insulin pens. It is similar with the Berserk Trait card, too. A diabetic cannot heal/recover as fast, so whenever I get shot, and my health takes longer to regenerate, I just pretend that my diabetes is acting up. The Bacta Bomb is my insulin -- why not? It is the same color. When the soldier pulls out the Bacta Bomb, it looks like he grabbed it out of his fanny pack, so even better.
One time I was running, and a Stormtrooper shot me in the arm and leg. My soldier jerked to the right, but I kept running and meleed the Stormtrooper, then took out the Scout Trooper next to him. I combat rolled into a room next to me, to take cover. My screen was red, and my soldier was breathing heavy. So I said, insulin time! And threw down a Bacta Bomb. It is just a geeky thing I do.
Diabetics do take a bit longer to recover than normal people. In middle and high school, I got into a number of fights; and I played basketball, football, and ran track -- it does not matter if one wins or loses a fight or game, it takes a bit more to recover if one is injured or doing strenuous activities.
I am certain some people will say, "Larry-3, why would you head canon your soldier like that?!" Come on now; have you never tried to place yourself in a game?
I suppose if someone ever jokes about the Rebel Alliance soldiers wearing fanny packs, you could say that you know one Star Wars geek who pretends his insulin pens are in it, ha!
