It contains the lifeline for diabetes. In as much as those with diabetes would like it smaller, more ‘hide-able’–it has become part of our terminology as much as anything else. It started as the diabetes supply bag; it became your diabetes bag, and after a certain amount of time it became known as just ‘the bag’.
You know; “Do you have the bag?”
“Where’s the bag?”
“Do not forget the bag”.
Did you ever think that such a word would become such an important part of your life. Did you ever think that such a word would represent so much that gets taken every where. It does not just get taken ‘out’, it gets taken EVERYWHERE.
Trips, run to the store, a walk around the park, or even skydiving from an airplane—we go nowehere without ‘THE BAG’.
Insulated, supplies, insulin, back-up, alcohol swabs….all are contained in ‘the bag’.
We should think of a really cool name for ‘the bag’; don’t you think? It just seems that something so important deserves a bigger, better, and cooler title, don;t you think? So if you have any ideas, I’m open to them.
I have to go take the kids out to a friends, have a great day as I need to jump in the car and go; but not without THE bag.
