Have You Ever?

You've heard of the game "I Never"... well, this is sort of the opposite.  I've done all of these things, and found them kind of funny, so I thought I'd share.  Enjoy!

Have you ever....

...thought insulin smelled like bandaids?  It totally does.
...gotten your insulin pump tubing caught on something (most often for me, it's a door handle), and been tugged back when you tried to walk away?
...considered not eating what you planned on, because you didn't want to "mess up" your in-range blood glucose number?  Whenever I see a flat line on the CGM in the 80 - 120 range, I wish I had a "freeze" button.
...had a higher proportion of diabetes supplies in your purse than anything else in there?
...wanted to throw a shoe at anyone in the media who can't differentiate type 1 and type 2?  More on this later...
...reached the point where you don't even have to say your name at the pharmacy counter, because you're in there so often that they already know who you are?

Feel free to add to my list with a comment...  :)


  1. ... recited the nutritional information in the food without ever looking it up :o)

  2. I can now add this one: inadvertently getting smears of blood on things you're handling too soon after a finger stick. Sometimes, my finger just wants to keep on bleedin'.

  3. ...grabbed your tester when you got a papercut so you didn't "waste" the blood.

  4. Yes! All except the purse thing. LOL!
