Ten Experiences I Would Have Missed if I didn’t Have Diabetes

If you don’t have diabetes, here is what you are missing.

  1. Mistaking control solution for eye drops.
  2. Almost dying because the cat chewed through my pump tubing while I was asleep.
  3. Dumping a vial of test strips in crowd and nearly getting trampled trying to pick them up.
  4. Chipping my front tooth on a glucose tablet.
  5. Wandering around aimlessly trying to remember what I was doing, oh yeah, treating that low.
  6. Selling my iPad to pay for insulin, then regretting that decision.
  7. Teaching my friends & family how to give me glucagon then listening to them repeat the instruction back to me incorrectly.
  8. Waking up with a low and falling down the stairs on my way to the refrigerator.
  9. Getting stabbed by a random needle every time I reach into my backpack.
  10. Having someone ask me if I am high in public and everyone around me thinking I am on drugs.
