That's right, diabetes is like actor Jim Carrey. He was revolting and shocking at first (Fireman Bill in In Living Color) and maybe you thought you could just ignore him. But the horrible experience of 'Dumb & Dumber' and 'Ace Venture' and even 'The Mask' may have jolted you back to reality - there was no getting rid of him, and you would have to take him seriously. Sure, he was annoying most of the time, but like having a good A1C score or a good bg reading in the morning, Carrey had a few successes here and there that made you think he wasn't so bad - "The Truman Show," or "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," for example. You enjoyed the few victories and successes when you could. But on the whole, the body of work has not been good. So you adapted, and learned to get by despite the endless succession of bad films. While Jim Carrey movies and diabetes get more technologically advanced ("The Number 23," continuous glucose monitors, and whatever makeup made him look like the Grinch) you have become resigned to the belief that there will never be a cure. You worry about longterm complications from the many years of Jim Carrey, such as a blindness to the fact that - wow - Heath Ledger is nominated for an Oscar because Carrey's depiction of The Riddler was so much worse by comparison.
