You know your a diabetic when you have a hanging show rack in the back of your closet hiding electrolite waters,protein bars, juices just in case.So far its a great hiding spot, Im the only person in the house that uses it. I always have a stash!

When you wake up in the morning and have Skittles or Smarties in your bed :)

Totally done that; I have woken up with them next to my face on the pillow loose and wondered why I smelled skittles. I have found candies in the strangest of places when cleaning up the house too. Smarty powder on one side of my face ect.. when I wake in the morning. ;-) I leave the wrappers on the night stand in case I need to carb count later. Some mornings that can be a real disaster but you have to laugh and wonder was that you or did the candy monster hit the candy drawer at 3am?

you know your a diabetic when your walking and hearing the rattling of hard candy in your pocket :D.

You know you're diabetic when you spend more time and effort packing food than clothes when going away.


your know youre a D when you watch your marathon runner husband consume endless meals of carbohydrates and eat cookies and cake every nite while drooling and hating every minute of it, especially (after yrs and yrs of marriage) asking me (STILL) if i want "a bite"

Obviously, the solution is for YOU to become a marathon runner, LOL! Acid Rock does a lot of running, and consumes a lot of carbs, and seems to be able to control his BG pretty well.

i loath running. i am a walker. keep'in it simple. thx, though, for the suggestion.LOL

You know your a diabetic when you spend hours of your sunday planning your whole week breakfast and looking for recipes

you know youre a D when you start to look fwd to your lows just so you can eat your husbands chocolate chip cookies that have been sitting in the fridge all week gloating at you.
