My diabetic glam life

The life of a diabetic is super glamorous and exciting.  I mean who doesn’t love checking then double checking and maybe triple checking carb amounts I food.  Then apologizing to your friends because you take forever on deciding on what you will splurge on.

Then of course there is the waking up in the middle of the night and checking your blood sugar because you do not know if you are tired or low.  Then you find out you are low so you have to stay up and eat then stay up longer to check your blood again to make sure you are okay.  You try going back to sleep but now you are awake because “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” is on a marathon on TLC.

You might have conversations with fellow diabetics talking about your new monitor or pump like you just got a new iPad.  Which made me think if I get an iPad and download a diabetes app can I get my insurance to cover it?  I need to find out.

Two years ago my dog died and I want another one.  I wonder if I can get my insurance to cover a diabetic alert dog.  Talk about trust, you make that dog angry and maybe it does not alert you.  I am kidding of course, but, seriously.

All in all it is not that bad of a life.  I was just thinking of the tiny inconveniences associated with this disease.  I am alive and living it up.  Plus without diabetes I would not have jokes about it in my comedy which mean I would have to think of new material.
