Happens to me all the time I have it on my phone so I always click on it cause I want to see what my "cgm" is showing lol!!

YOu know you're a diabetic when...

Your five year old and your favorite candy is DOTS and you have to tell her you can't eat them anymore. And the next time you go through Walmart doors the stolen food bar goes off and you accuse them (lightheartedly) of choosing you cause you're black...only to find out your five year old stole a pack of DOTS because she "really really wanted some bad but you can't have any"

Jay, that's funny. Maybe you could eat just one?

OMG Jay, sorry but I can't help laughing :) What a considerate little one.

When you know how many carbs are in your favorite hot dog.

When you open your car door and test strips fall out. When you walk across the hospital parking lot and can identify 2 different brands of test strips strewn across the pavement. When your neighbor's 3 year old picks up a test strip off the floor and hands it to you and says, "Oh, here's your blood tester."

You know you are a diabetic when you find youself eating frozen concentrated fruit juice straight from the can at 2:47 in the morning..... that will teach you to hit the treadmill before bedtime :-)
