Life Lessons - Courtesy Of Diabetes

Life is a lot like blood sugars. There are highs, there are lows, and there’s the stuff in between.

People will always surprise you with their diabetes stupidity.

People will continually AMAZE you with their knowledge (and desire to understand) diabetes.

Doorknobs are sneaky little suckers!

When PWDs look at food we see numbers, not “dead people.” I kid you not.

Blood droplets/smears don’t necessarily = a CSI moment.

Lancets are actually sold in bunches – who knew?

Happiness is a lot like used test strips. WHY? Because happiness is all around us - and happiness is also found in the most unexpected of places ;)

Unfortunately blood droplets on a home-made thank you note does = tears. And just to confirm, blood doesn't easily wipe off paper:(
