She who laughs last...

DBlog Week Day 2 - One Great Thing

I love to laugh.  And make people laugh.  In fact, one of the greatest compliments you could give me is to tell me I make you laugh or you think I'm funny (NOT funny-looking - it's important to note the difference).

I'd like to think I do a good job of infusing humour into this diabetic life of ours.  Yes, diabetes sucks, but it will not steal our joy or ability to enjoy a good chuckle or two.  A lot of it I have chronicled on this blog:

My what not to say video.

Awarding myself medals for diabetes-greatness.

Giving you a glimpse into my inner craziness.

Sometimes it has nothing to do with diabetes.

Even finding laughter after what was a very frightening experience.

It think that it's important that Elise grows up seeing that although I take diabetes very seriously, we can still laugh at it's expense.


  1. laughing right along with ya...it must be an Canadian thing? :)

    Thanks for making me laugh more...with you not at you!!

  2. I'll cast a vote for some d-laughter south of the Canadian border! :-)

  3. I love to laugh too and your sense of humor is what has brought me back to your blog again and again. Thanks for the laughs!!

  4. You are a rock star! I am not saying that just cause you are Canadian and a Vancouverite :-)

    But you are the mom I would have wanted if I had type 1 diabetes as a kid.

  5. hells to the yes, if we couldn't laugh at this stuff then we'd really be screwed! thanks for bringing me and my fam so much laughter! :)

  6. Lots of laughter at our house too! It really is the best medicine and nothing makes me feel better after a long day with "D" than hearing my little boy laugh. Keep making us laugh Joanne! xoxo

  7. Your snarky sense of humor is one of the many reasons I love you, Joanne! You rock at a lot of things! SO thankful for you!

  8. Laughing is so much more fun than crying.

  9. Totally agree! Jules.

  10. I love that you make me laugh :)

  11. agreed you have a wicked sense of humor...and it is extra awesome that you're really a northwesterner! And I've wanted to tell you that my mom even shares your video you made, she thinks it is truly one of the most hilarious things she's ever seen :)
