This video does not count for this week's Making Sense of Diabetes, but I wanted to get this out there, since it reflects my personal view about the smell of diabetes... specifically the smell of insulin.

I personally think it smells like cheap shoes people buy at Payless and the like.

My husband was on an airplane once and woke up to the smell of insulin (because he is used to it from me). The man next to him was a T1 and was giving an injection. LOL!

LOL I loved Cherise at the end! But just that medicinal yuck smell. Bandaids do come close though.

I once spilled a whole vial of insulin on my jeans and had to go to class. Everyone said that it smelled like a hospital.
