I try to never use my diabetes as an excuse… but there have been a few times.
Like when I didn’t turn in my english paper because I overslept class. I told my professor my sugar got low and I couldn’t drive to class to turn in my paper. (this has actually happened so its not to far fetched)
I have also gotten out of 2 speeding tickets because of it too. When the cops pulled me over I told them I was speeding because my sugar was low and I was heading to the gas station to get some juice.
I don’t think diabetes should be an excuse for anything and I really feel bad for using it as one, but when Im about to get a 0 or a $200 ticket I think it is okay. I mean really I have to live with this for the rest of my life, I might as well get a few breaks from it.
So I was just wondering what kind of things have you been able to get out of because of your diabetes?
Oh and I am VERY guilty of using this one. Me and my brother go running everynight and when Im feeling lazy I always tell him that my sugar is low. hehehe Im just waiting for the day he asks me to check it and prove to him that it is low.
