You know you're a diabetic when

#61

When you eat extra at lunch before shopping and still go low

#62

When you enter your BG and realize that it’s actually for the number of carbs you are about to eat on your pump.

#63

When you say to your friends and family…Excuse me I must go puncture myself and no one looks at you funny.

#64

Or did you really say “I have to go shoot myself”??? LOL!!!

#65

You know you are diabetic when you have callouses built up on the edges of your pinkies…

#66

I really do say puncture myself. It seems that poking yourself with something sharp is the worst part of ‘D’ that we all have to endure. I do use the “I have to go shoot myself” line also.

I know this is a very old post but I had to say, after 10 years of marriage my wife still grumbles that she can’t keep butter where it belongs!

#68

You leave your class schedule in the nurses office when you tested for lunch and you come back to get it and she says… Do you feel low already?

#69

when you get childishly excited about a diabetes android app… (if anyone’s interested the one I found is called OnTrack Diabetes and it’s free…)

When you look at the meal served on the plane and you don’t see it as fettucine alfredo, a bread roll, juice and cake. You see it as starch, with a side of starch, accompanied by high-carb fluids, followed by starch and sugar.

You know you’re diabetic when - You open your dyer & test strips fall out. lol

OMG! I have SO been there. I bring snacks from home, but honest to goodness, by 11:45 I’m ready to eat my shoes! LOL!

My husband complains that he finds the things everywhere! It’s true. I laughed out loud at the one about having them fall out of the dryer when you open it up. That’s next!
