In case anyone was wondering just how fun having diabetes is when you’re sick, I just spent the past hour and a half–which consisted of approximately thirty gummy bears, a glass of pineapple juice, and two heaping spoons of peanut butter–to get my blood sugar up from a 50. Of course all of this happened AFTER I took NyQuil. I’m still not in safe range yet, but thankfully I have bumped up to a 65. Waiting for the climb. I am having a blast :)

Things that effect my blood sugars
  • Hormones (don’t even get me started on what goes on during my period)
  • too much or too little insulin (duh)
  • stress
  • exercise
  • being really excited
  • being mad
  • being sad
  • pretty much all emotions
  • school ( math test mess me up like none other)
  • driving
  • chores
  • sleeping in
  • getting up early
  • the weather (yeah even the fricken weather)
  • let’s just assume that everything effects my blood sugars because they’re stupid

Dating a diabetic like… #diabeticproblems

so okay, it’s apparently totally accepted to joke about diabetes, which in my case is autoimmune - there was nothing i could’ve done to prevent it, but it’s however extremely rude and insensitive to joke about aids or cancer etc??

every goddamn day when i go into the diabetes tag i see joke after joke; “bill has 30 chocolate bars and he eats 27 of them, what does bill have now?? diabetuuus lolololollololloool” or “wow i ate so much ice cream im gonna die of betuus XD” and picture after picture of junk food

do you even realize how hurtful and insensitive that is?? not only are you incredibly ignorant, you are also turning a serious disease into a joke

now go enjoy your working pancreas and longer life and get the fuck out of the diabetes tag (◡‿◡✿)
