If Your Diabetes Could Talk... What would it say about you??? My top 10 List.

What would your Diabetes say to you?


Mine would say something like this...


1.  Are you ready for some ups and downs?


2.  Do you really think I care what you eat?


3.  A shedule... Ha, I don't work on a schedule.


4.  How low can you go, How High can you fly?


5.  I never sleep and I am always working against you, Nice to meet you too.


6.  Today will be a bad day, any questions?


7.  Are you thinking of me?  I'm thinking about you?


8.  Life is like a box of chocolates... expect without the chocolate for you!


9.  Need Insulin?  I'm not telling you how much!!!


10.  Who doens't like finger pricks, needles, and infusion sets?  Oh wait, you don't, lol.

Hello Kaila,
Diabetes here. Just reminding you that I am randomly gonna wake you up an hour after you fall into a deep sleep.. To drop you to 40. Mess with your body temperature like a kid playing with the buttons on the thermostat... Then make you feel like a grumpy butt... With a little dose of nausea and headache cause I feel like hanging out in the 300's. But then you don't appreciate all that I do for you and give me that Kryptonite aka insulin but I find a way to crash you down again. Its a love hate relationship. Now go back to sleep, I'll wake you up again later.
My diabetes would talk to me like that part in the movie The Terminator. Where the good guy is telling the girl about the robot. I never sleep, nothing can stop me and I won't stop till I get you even if it's a piece one at a time (paraphrase) LOL like Dr evil in Austin Powers!!!!!
Do you like to fly high??

How low can you go?

I hope you love rollercoasters cause life with me is all about the highs and lows!

Hey hey don't forget to pack my stuff too he he he!!

I get what I want and when I want it!
Does this mean I canlt give my Grandma some suga?!!!

I will never go back to work.....too much fun watching you try to do it all on your own.

Well, you are the one who always says you want to be a lifelong learner. Keep trying, you'll never figure it all out.
