lets make a list of "you know your a diabetic when you "!


You know your a diabetic when you freak out when your friend eats a candy bar without a bolus!

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 :-)

You have a dog named...Basal

love it!

You cheat against your meter by taking your bed time glucose, then eating a few spoonfuls of ice cream. That way your doctor doesn't know....and you can pretend you went to bed on a good number.

hahaha so true that used to be me!!!

When it's Valentines day and you are debating giving up all important meals in favor of eating just two chocolate covered strawberries and maybe one of your roommates homemade cookies that she left on her deck.

When you have a stash of Glucose tablets everywhere, home, car, office, girlfriends house, parents house.

OMG this is my life!
You know you're diabetic when you ask your very diabetic clued-up friends in the lunch hall why they aren't shooting up too and after a long pause one of them finally says "Um we still have working pancreases"!
