Silliness

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 don’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.

It’s Blue Friday, right? And Mike from Spain is collecting diabetes-related pictures for Diabetes 11.11.11? And my pen is blue (mostly)…

Which resulted in this:

Which I tweeted and facebooked.

Not too much longer, Dave (@SowerBee) tweeted me this back:

(Total AWEsomesauce, dude!)

Diabetes doesn’t always have to be so serious. You just have to know how to be fun with it.

Way to go, guys!

PS:

Happy WORLD DIABETES DAY everyone!
