We all hear the bad things about having diabetes but today I found a good thing. I have had to have a small operation in the hospital today and they have told me that they are doing me first because I'm a pwd! Yay
tho one person put up a fuss saying its not fair. The nurse just looked at him and said you really don't want to have D. Lol

so what's the good thing about having diabetes for you?

I can frighten restaurants into serving me NOW by telling them I just took my insulin and they'd better feed me fast!
Haha, I really like both responses. I'm sitting here thinking about my answer. It's a little tougher than I thought but I would have to say I like the "get out of jail free pass" that diabetes gives me. If I am having a crabby day I can always say it's my blood sugars or I always get free reign to pick what food my friends and I eat when we go out. Sometimes I don't choose the healthiest option but people trust me because I've got the D card! Tee hee.
When I was 17, I didn't get the endless phone calls (like all my friends did) trying to get me to join the Army. And if a draft is ever reinstated in the US, I won't be eligible.
