haha! that happened to me to, well actually I got up to go to the bathroom and my mum said very loudly "are you high???" :)
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!!)
You know your diabetic when your a 911 call operator talking to someone who is not making any sense with answers to questions, and rather than jumping to the common conclusion they must be drunk, your first thought is I wonder if they are diabetic and what their BG level is. Turns out I was correct. Just didn't sound like another drunk to me...not sure what it was about them, fellow diabetic gut instinct maybe?
GSP....Glucose Sensory Powers :)
You know you are diabetic when you get stopped at customs with syringes in your bag and they let you carry them on the plane
you cut yourself in the garage and your first reaction is to test the blood...

LOLOLOL

Hi Sugar-Free. You say on your profile that you're looking for diabetes jokes--well, you make pretty good ones yourself! I know I'm diabetic when I laugh at grave humor meant for us PWD's.
