How Do You Know…….(with Apologies to Jeff Foxworthy)

Jeff FoxworthyIf your kid yells to you in a department store that they are high and you know there is not substance abuse……you might be part of the diabetes community.

If you find test strips attached to your dog…….you might be part of the diabetes community.

If you know who the cute little bushmeister is…….you might be part of the diabetes community.

If someone answers you that it is 350 where they are and you think it is a blood glucose number and not the time………you might be part of the diabetes community.

If one of your kids goes to eat a cupcake and you tell them to bolus, then realize she is the one that DOES NOT have diabetes……you might be part of the diabetes community.

If someone asks how you are and you respond, “feeling hypo” instead of how life is going…..you might be part of the diabetes community.

If you text someone you had keytones and your phone auto-corrected it to kittens…..you might be part of the diabetes community.

If your kids are a lot better in math class than their peers……..you might just be part of the diabetes community.

If you take the bulk of your child’s candy at Halloween and leave  it out the front door where it is taken away and a toy left in its place by the Great Pumpkin…….you might just be in the diabetes community.

If you teenager looks incredulously at you after being diagnosed four months early when you inform them their honeymoon is over and they say, “I ain’t married”…….you might be in the diabetes community.

and finally for today……

If you have a child that comes running out holding the family pet and says very proudly I know Fluffy’s blood sugar number……you just might be part of the diabetes community.

Have a great day.
