I know, it happened twice! One of my lowest moments, no pun intended.

....when you ask the lab tech not to put pressure on her puncture so you can check two meters (did it this morning) and don't mind the gusher.

You know you are diabetic when you change your infusion site in the evening, and find the old one still in place the next morning.

LOL!!

You know you are diabetic when you get concerned that your little dog suddenly begins to drink lots of water and she wakes you up at 1a.m. to go potty....so your mind jumps automatically to doggie diabetes. (Luckily it appears to be just a uti)

You know you're a diabetic when you wake up from a tonsilectomy, the nurse heads towards you with juice and the first thing you attempt to squeak out is "how many carbs are in that?" and then "where'sy glucometer" - of course she looked at me like I was nuts :)

When you're trying on clothes and consider where you'll put your pump.

you can't leave the house w/o your electronics and a bag of support materials and snacks.

you know you're a diabetic...

When you give your local UPS driver Christmas and birthday gifts.

you know you're a diabetic...

When your bathroom has a half empty jar of every kind of foot and hand cream known to man.

you know you're a diabetic...

When you can tell your fellow employees what infomercials are on every night
between 2:00am and 4:00am.

You know your a diabetic when..

You look at the stock graphs & think of a glucose graph..
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!!
