I just heard Type 1 Diabetes described as “a civil war in your body”. That’s the most kickass thing I’ve ever heard.
more like a sudden vicious ambush on undefended civilians by guerrilla combatants that leave no survivors…>.>
But yeah, the sentiment is spot on.
What if you’re in the honeymoon period still? It’s been two years and I know that I still am…
O.O I think it means you’re the luckiest diabetic I’ve ever met. The honeymoon can really last for years? Wow.
The last time I was at the doctors was over 4 months ago, so it could very well be over now, but still, that would mark 2 years. My A1c has only reached 6.3 since I was diagnosed and my insulin has remained very little changed. (For example, I take 7 units for a dinner that follows my meal plan. I’ve heard of people taking 15 and even more…)
I still have never completely used an insulin pen.
Blood Sugar: 47
Me: Ok. Time to be a good diabetic. Eat 15 grams of carbs, wait 15 minutes, and retest blood sugar.
Me: *eats 4 large bowls of cereal, 8 granola bars, a bag of chips, a car, and my entire family.
Blood Sugar: 307
Me: Why did that happen.
You guys I’m in Disney World and this afternoon my blood sugar dropped so low I got separated from my family and somehow bought an ice cream and then blacked out and woke up on a bench with chocolate sauce all over my arms and Mickey Mouse putting a cold towel on my head this truly is a magical place.
