I love the movie "Napoleon Dynamite." It has so many great quotes & is truly one of my favorites.
This movie influenced me in many ways. Such as:
- Buying my nephew a "Vote For Pedro" shirt for his 13th birthday - It was a huge hit!
- Contemplating Cage Fighting as a new form of cardio
- Seriously considering adopting either a mythical Liger or a bitchy llama as a pet.
Kip wrote the following song for his Glamazonian bride.
" Yes I love technology, not as much as you you see, but still I love technology, Always and forever, Always and forever."
That little tune would be what I sing to both my pump & blood sugar monitor every single time they annoy me.
Whenever my battery craps out, my tubing gets tangled, or my blood sugar monitor decides that I didn't sufficiently gouge myself enough for an accurate reading, I take a deep breath and say "I love technology." Then I sing Kip's tune and get on with my day.
We are so lucky to live in an age when Diabetes technology has given us insulin pumps, blood monitors, CGM's,and carb counting is now the rule as opposed to the complete sugar ban of not so long ago.
I sometimes forget how it used to be. Needles, soring blood sugars, antiquated urine testing involving strips, fizzy tablets and a test tube. Blood sugar monitors that were neither portable or accurate. And never being able to enjoy anything that contained even a hint of the Voodoo sugar without receiving criminal looks from others and loads of self guilt from me....
Yes, I want a cure in my life time, but I'm thankful for Diabetes technology. I've seen how it makes my life more livable and Blood Sugar Nirvana more achievable. I'm grateful for it.
