No Worries. Be Happy.
I had a lot of fun writing up a Diabetic’s Version of “Hey, it’s OK!” as seen in Glamour, so I thought I’d do another round. Feel free to contribute in the comments!
… to yell at your insulin pump when it beeps at you.
… to eat cupcakes. Everyday. (Well, OK, maybe not everyday).
… to test your blood sugar five times in a row when you have a good reading in order to get your meter’s average down. It won’t do anything for your actual A1C, but at least it will make you feel better temporarily!
… to wonder why everything in your purse is black (phone, keys, wallet, glucose meter case… no wonder they call it a black hole!)
… to drink juice when you’re not having a low blood sugar. Mimosas are my friend.
… to sometimes think, “You mean I have to do this for rest of my life? FOR SERIOUSLY?” and then want to smack your head against the wall. Don’t do that last part though – it hurts.
… to think your insulin pump is cooler than their insulin pump. (Edit: yes, this is a repeat from last time – but it’s a worthy repeat!)
… to totally not want to blog about diabetes. Or think about it or talk about it, for that matter.
… to be all “WTF!” about stupid things that people say.
… to think you’re the most awesomest person on the planet! (Because you are, and everyone should know it).
