Me when I was first diagnosed: Alright now I’ve got approximately X amount of carbs that I can consume throughout the day, which I can break down into X amount of carbs every four hours, which gives me three meals and one bedtime snack
with high-protein content to carry me through
. Everything must be precise in order to maximize success with my blood sugars.
Me now: I don’t see why I can’t have three pasta dinners tonight
Years ago, when I was eight years old and first diagnosed with type one diabetes, someone was asking me what being a diabetic meant. I was not as familiar with internal organs at the time as I could have been but I remembered that the name of the organ in my body that wasn’t working anymore (the pancreas) started with a “p”. So I said “I’m a diabetic because my penis isn’t working.”
How about instead of saying something stupid like this you just go shove a cactus up your butt. Cancer and Diabetes are two completely different things with there own struggles. They should never be compared or put up against each other in any way.
