You might be a DOCaholic…
Top Twelve signs you are addicted to the Diabetes Online Community:
(Yes, twelve. Because who can really stop at ten?)
You obsessively take photographs of numbers.
You know what it means to have “bloused” before a meal, and you’ve likely done it yourself. Read the rest of this entry
#DBlogWeek ’14 – Day 2 – Under the spleen
Are you ready, kids?
(Aye, aye, captain!!)
Who lives in a pancreas under the spleen?
It’s lazy and useless and spiteful and mean!
If blood sugar nonsense is something you wish
You’ve got diabetes and drink like a fish!
Dye-a-beet-ees, high-low Bee-Gees,
Carb-hy-dreet-ees Dye-a…. beet-ees!

(Remember – I have a first-grade son at home with a favorite TV show. Also, have you ever tried to find a word that rhymes with diabetes?)
Today’s topic: This year, Diabetes Blog Week and TuDiabetes are teaming up to bring out the poet in you! Write a poem, rhyme, ballad, haiku, or any other form of poetry about diabetes. After you’ve posted it on your blog, share it on the No Sugar Added® Poetry page on TuDiabetes, and read what others have shared there as well!
I will test my sugar. Scott’s-my-name!
Just watch! I’ll do it! Without shame!
And I would test it in a boat!
And at the zoo, next to a goat.
And I will test it on a plane.
And at my desk. And on a train.
And in a car; In a church pew.
It’s something I just have to do!
So I will test, not being rude.
Standing in line for some fast food.
And I will test it in the loo,
Or walking down Sixth Avenue.
And I will test it here and there.
Say! I will test it ANYWHERE!
I do not like
To hide my “D”.
Yes, I have tested in all of these places and situations … without shame.
Words and rhythm are a tribute to the legendary author Dr. Seuss, who would have turned 110 years old today. Happy Birthday!
This side up
I made a couple of interesting observations this afternoon about how I position my diabetes supplies. Can you tell what do these three images have in common?
The urine ketone strip — not pictured (your welcome) — also gets used upside-down.
Perhaps it’s why I find this image, tweeted during last month’s Diabetes Advocates Forum, so alluring and appropriate.
