These are the type of posts I write at 3 am, when I have yet to fall asleep after a night of fighting sucktastic BGs. I get kind of manic when I don't sleep...
-When a friend offers your child sugar-free candy, you are conflicted about whether you should be thankful they're trying (in their own misguided way) to get it, or if you should kick their ass for not getting it at all.
-While measuring you non-d kid's antibiotics into a syringe, you first try to put air into the bottle.
-You know that ketones are not a musical group from the 60s.
-When you see another d-person in the wild, you act like a dog does when they see another dog; beside yourself with excitement all the while fighting the urge to sniff their butt. What... is that just me?
-You get very excited when diabetes is mentioned in the news or on a TV show. You immediately run to your computer and blog/twittter (tweet?)/facebook about it. You make a mental note to talk about it at your next d get-together, and years after it happened, you will still talk to your d friends about it.
-When a friend casually mentions their child has been drinking a lot of water lately, you have to fight the urge to whip out your child's meter and test your friend's kids on the spot.
-You know that the Islets of Langerhans is not a tropical resort destination.
