I just came to think of one more.. You know you're diabetic when you steal little packets of Canderel from coffee bars when the barista's not looking, so you can use them in other coffee bars that only have sugar.
I do love my coffee, when I was diagnosed I thought oh well so I can't eat much of chocolate or cakes or whatever but don't take my cappucino away from me!! :) So I've now mapped out which coffee bars only have sugar and which ones that have artificial sweeteners (Natreen or Canderel).
You know you're diabetic when you get upset at the waitress/management when they tell you they don't carry sweeteners.
(What the heck is THAT all about, considering the ENORMOUS amout of people living with diabetes....never mind those using sweeteners as a calorie reducer!!)
