Today’s prompt: Having a positive attitude is important . . . but let’s face it, diabetes isn’t all sunshine and roses (or glitter and unicorns, for that matter). So today let’s vent by listing ten things about diabetes that we hate. Make them funny, make them sarcastic, make them serious, make them anything you want them to be!!
Only ten? All right, here we go:
1. The itch that accompanies a taped-on sensor or an expiring infusion set.
2. The fact that diabetes is becoming a marketable lifestyle, complete with magazines, pre-packaged foods, and ugly socks.
3. Scar tissue.
5. Its neverending nature.
6. Eye exams.
7. The headless “obese people in the wild” shots that inevitably show up on news programs anytime diabetes is discussed.
8. Sugar-free candy. (Dangerous in more ways than one.)
9. All those stupid mice.
10. The blue candle.
