Diabetes in Pictures

There are some diabetic myths and pet peeves that really annoy me!

So exciting! There should be a code-word to tell someone your diabetic as well!
There is no other answer to this question.
They don't really want to know the ins and outs of your crappy day!

This is my biggest pet peeve! So annoying.....

They are everywhere! In my socks, under my pillow, at the bottom of my handbag...
Because who sticks to the 15g carb rule!
The hypo hunger is unbearable!!
Everyone I talk to  about my diabetes tries to relate it to their own life. Please tell me your experiences of diabetes management from your mother's friend's girlfriend's dog's diabetes!

I get this all the time at school. I get so many judgmental looks when we order pizza.
It is not just taking an injection with diabetes!
Until next time,

  1. Love these pictures - I've collected loads of them and they still make me laugh each time I see them. SO IMPORTANT to have a sense of humour with diabetes :-))

    1. If you don't have a sense of humour about diabetes it becomes very tedious!
