DSMA Sep 11 Blog Carnival - D Blanks

My laugh-out-loud funny moment with diabetes occurred when at the latest Brighton forum meet. Amy and I made a little holiday weekend out of it, and before meeting the lovely forum peeps we went to the pier. Amy brought some candy floss, rock and fudge (for her parents) and brought it along to the meet. Of course us PWD can't eat sugar (cough sarcasm cough) so we all had a giggle and Amy did go a bit red! :)

The hash tag that best sums up diabetes is #glucoaster because D is never stable, you can do everything right and still have the extreme highs/lows, feelings of loneliness. Unfortunately unlike a ride D is for life so you just have to take things one day at a time.

One reason I love the diabetes online community is that everyone is so helpful and supportive no matter what the situation or time zone. We're all in the same boat and need to fight D together.
They don't need explanations, they just get it.

If I didn’t laugh about Diabetes then I would spend a lot of time crying in despair. Either that or I might not be here right now. Laughter is definately the best medicine, particularly for something like D!

Diabetes, I have a bone to pick with you:
You take up a lot of time.
You cause a lot of pain.
You take people before their time.
You don't come with an instruction manual.
I'll never fully understand you.
I'll never be free of you.

Diabetes, you’re not the boss of me because I said so. Despite my down days I LOVE kicking your ass into touch!

I think A1C stands for Always 1 Catch.

My favorite exclamation about diabetes is Ducking Fiabetes!

The one thing the DOC needs is more members and more publicity! You can never have enough support when it comes to D :)

Diabetes needs a better slogan, such as The 'Betes!

I think #dsma should be available all over the world on free prescription.

Diabetes is to cupcakes as the DOC is to unicorns and glitter!

This post is my September entry in the DSMA Blog Carnival. If you’d like to participate too, you can get all of the information at
