You Know You Are a Diabetic If...

Diabetes is a pretty serious disease, as anyone with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes knows. That said, never let it be said that diabetics don't have a sense of humour about it, especially after long-term dealing with their blood sugar levels.

One of the folks over on the diabetes lists I frequent, Helen Mueller, posted this up several years ago. I'll let the individuals reading this entry decide whether the stuff below is humourous or not.

You Know You Are A Diabetic If:

You have ever dreamt about Wonder Bread.

You weep at picnics, parties, receptions and fast food joints.

You weep at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

You've ever "brown bagged it" to an elegant dinner engagement.

You read the ingredient label on green tea - plain green tea.

A 7 Course Meal is a 1 Course Meal for you. Lettuce.

It takes you 4 hours to grocery shop and your eyesight is ruined.

You hyperventilate when passing by the bakery counter.

Your family thinks you're crazy for not tasting their new chocolate chocolate chip cookie recipe, because surely a little nibble couldn't hurt right?

You show up at the annual church pancake breakfast with a mask and sardine lettuce rollups.

You long to look at the contents of other people's fridges and pantries just to see what normal people eat.

You've mastered saying "I actually enjoy MY food"...without your face twitching.


Some food for thought in there, too, folks. :)
