Awkward Moments With Diabetes.

Explaining that yes, you CAN eat that... just, um, not right now.


Your "just going away for two days" bag looks like everyone else's "I'll be out of the country for a week" bag.


A low blood sugar ensures that you are "that person" at the movies.


Technology - you haz it. 
The ability to differentiate - not so much.






Ladies who use an insulin pump with tubing: 
it just takes a little bit longer.


Gentlemen: The Murse.


When the smoking hot intern at the endocrinology office leans in close to look at your "diabetic eyes", and you smolder. Just a little.


An ill-timed pump alarm interrupts Hug Time.



"Low" and "had a lot to drink" look awfully similar.

  5. Re: the endo intern. I remind myself from time to time that attractiveness is not an important attribute in medical professionals - but it's great when it happens. (Ah, my pharmacist.... *grin*)
