Picture Pages

I wasn’t quite sure how to approach today’s Diabetes Blog Week assignment, Diabetes Snapshots. I guess I’m so used to seeing used test strips in the bottom of my purse or alcohol swabs in my makeup case that I don’t really see anything that warrants its own photograph.

My husband, however, was more than up to the challenge. As soon as I told him what today’s topic was, he said “I know exactly what to take a picture of: your Diabetes Trail of Destruction” Here’s the first thing he captured:

Still Life With Juice Box

My husband calls this photograph “Dead Soldier.” Although this picture was taken around 10:30 this morning, I think I killed that juice box sometime around 5:30 a.m. For some reason, I never throw the juice boxes away after I treat a low blood sugar in the middle of the night. Instead, they’re always left for my husband to discover in the morning. If you look carefully, you can see the straw wrapper glistening in front of the juice box.

The next snapshot:

I was still a little low when I got up this morning, and too tired to think about eating, so I went with a mini Luna Bar. Apparently I was too tired to think about throwing the wrapper away, too.

My husband has a great title for this next picture:

“Sticky Rice.” Hilarious, right? Those are infusion set needles and sensor daggers in there.

He took this picture, too — it’s pretty self-explanatory:

Can you tell that I reuse reservoirs?

Finally, here’s the photo I was going to post today. I was rooting around in my bedroom for nail polish remover, and look what I found:

A whole new unopened box of test strips! It’s like the diabetic equivalent of finding a dollar in your pants pocket! What a great way to start the weekend . . .

    The titles of the photos is a hoot. I would more like finding a $20 bill! Woohoo!

    You and your husband did a great job on the pictures. 🙂 but I have to say, finding an unopened bottle of test strips is more like finding a $20 in your pocket – at least!!
