I will run across the country with out packing any juice, gluco tabs or sugar and without reducing my insulin. I will also have sympathy for those who are not cured yet.

Yes!! I've thought about this sort of Forrest Gump-like excursion. It would be so much easier without diabetes!

I know I'd worry a lot less, and also wouldn't be ticking off a checklist in my head to make sure I have all my supplies with me before leaving the house ...

First I would throw away all my insulin and call all of my family and friends. Then I think I'd enjoy a nice drink without having to worry about the spikes and drops in blood sugar. Then as much as I hate to say this because it's so cliche I think I would have a pint of Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Oh then I would make sure to say a prayer and tell God how grateful I am :) Even if there's a 100% legit cure though I don't think I could ever throw away my bg meter. I would probably continue to keep checking my bg for a long time afterwards just to make sure I'm not dreaming :)

I would go to a nice park with my daughters play the whole day run around, without having to worry about going hypo then we would go out for ice cream! nothing major just the fact that I would be able to play with my girls and not have to worry about going low would be perfect :)

I agree. The pancakes would be great, but being able to just "be" without worrying about every little detail would be the best.

lol I agree the pancakes would be great :) but just being worry free would be the best feeling ever!


I'ld like to try some of that "mindless eating" the media thinks is such an issue. When I hear a report on this I always stop and wonder what it would be like to not think about what you are eating. It is hard to imagine the act of eating as a simple, unadulterated act that doesn't have about 5 other actions/thoughts/processes associated with it.

Wow, the ability to simply EAT.....and nothing else.

After reading all these posts, I decided what I would do to celebrate. Nothing. I have a decent diet right now, walk as well as I can, and stop counting carbs. Hey, I might even watch the food network!

I will enjoy being free of financial stress

Eat cake
