With diabetes, you gotta be silly sometimes.
Friday, being just a weird, off-day for me, (and to make a very long, extremely complicated story simple) and started off with me having to use my backup insulin pen at work. Since I donâ€™t like the idea of wasting insulin, I figured it was time for a pump break anyways, and started on insulin pens.
Then I got this idea.
Itâ€™s Blue Friday, right? And Mike from Spain is collecting diabetes-related pictures for Diabetes 11.11.11? And my pen is blue (mostly)â€¦
Which resulted in this:
Which I tweeted and facebooked.
Not too much longer, Dave (@SowerBee) tweeted me this back:
(Total AWEsomesauce, dude!)
Diabetes doesnâ€™t always have to be so serious. You just have to know how to be fun with it.
Way to go, guys!
Happy WORLD DIABETES DAY everyone!
