Do any of these make YOUR list?
About those scarves: I bought those from Hanky Pancreas; they were not freebies, and no one asked me to mention them. They also aren't cheap (around $40 a pop), but for good reason - they are extremely well-made and cleverly designed. I am in love with mine.
I always think if someone asks me if I'm wearing a pager, I'm going to answer, "Yeah, I'm trying to bring it back, you got a problem with that?"ReplyDelete
You could also tell someone you are a doctor, but that is most likely a horrible idea. And very fraudulent!
Hahaha this is great! I totally have a slew of makeup bags that I used for D-supplies in my purse!ReplyDelete
gigglestix. Love this.ReplyDelete
You're cute:) I never thought of myself as badass, but I do have grown men tell me they could never give themselves shots.ReplyDelete
We are total badasses! :) I have SO many people who say 'I could never ever do that, if I had diabetes'...well we HAVE diabetes and we do it cause we want to live. :)Delete
I just ditched the black meter case for the cutest makeup clutch! I'm still using injections and found the perfect insulated bag from GraniteGear to keep my insulin cool in this hot Colorado summer. I love bags!ReplyDelete
I absolutely love you, Kim! DHugs! <3ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giggle!!!ReplyDelete
This totally brought a smile to my face... Love it! An addition from my end: Not being a bag-lover myself, as I have one "boring" black meter case, it's a bright side bonus that Suzi can actually get as many bags and purses as she wants and use "carrying my D-stuff" around as an excuse. So, yes -> That's awesome, too! :))ReplyDelete
You are too cute and too funny!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the smiles this evening!!
This is hysterical. I especially like the comment about throwing dirty test strips at weddings instead of rice. LOL!ReplyDelete
Kim, I was thinking of Adele when you said, "do my business and be left alone!"ReplyDelete
So, umm... what does it say about me that when my old standard-issue black meter pouch got all tattered and frayed, I called up the manufacturer and asked for a replacement? (And they asked me to send the old one back!). But, yeah, there is something bad-ass about showing someone my infusion or CGM site to someone and saying "Yeah, I did that myself, and I'll probably do it again tomorrow", just to see their reaction.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the smiles and giggles :)ReplyDelete
Stop being so cute. Or don't. Or whatever. Love this.ReplyDelete
Im getting ready to go to a wedding.. strip confetti here I come!ReplyDelete
Great post. I'm convinced that there is a place/space/moment to reflect on the bright side of diabetes. You inspired me and I've gone ahead and bought the domain (www.brightsideofdiabetes.com). Not sure yet how to use it, but it will come in handy i'm sure.ReplyDelete
Eduardo - that is SO AWESOME!Delete
Love this! It's always nice to be reminded of the brighter side of diabetes. Thanks!ReplyDelete
you're the awesomest, dude! <3
