You know you're a diabetic when

#141

When you wake up in the morning and have Skittles or Smarties in your bed :)

#142

Totally done that; I have woken up with them next to my face on the pillow loose and wondered why I smelled skittles. I have found candies in the strangest of places when cleaning up the house too. Smarty powder on one side of my face ect.. when I wake in the morning. ;-) I leave the wrappers on the night stand in case I need to carb count later. Some mornings that can be a real disaster but you have to laugh and wonder was that you or did the candy monster hit the candy drawer at 3am?

your know youre a D when you watch your marathon runner husband consume endless meals of carbohydrates and eat cookies and cake every nite while drooling and hating every minute of it, especially (after yrs and yrs of marriage) asking me (STILL) if i want "a bite"
UGH.

Obviously, the solution is for YOU to become a marathon runner, LOL! Acid Rock does a lot of running, and consumes a lot of carbs, and seems to be able to control his BG pretty well.

you know youre a D when you can change your infusion set/resevoir and insulin without the need for a light to be turned on and not waking up your husband. what use to tk 1/2 hour now takes a minute.

#156

you plan your arrival at your favourite restaurant teetering on a hypo so you can really go carb crazy, planning your way back home by the most circuitous route possible, all in an attempt to cheat the D.
