For me managing my stress levels has been super important. Even the high/low blood sugar confusion anger affects my relationships at times, so I always use that as a cue that my BS may be off. I have noticed how certain stresses at work will send my BS up. But anywho I meant to share a joke to cheer up some of the stressed out diabetics. So when I was going to diabetes camp as a kid they would sing around the campfire "no sugar tonight" by the guess who. Thinking back on it, it's really special but at the same time really ridiculously funny.

Here's another one appropriate for a medical themed site:

>> Medical Opinions

Two medical students were walking along the street when they saw an old man walking with his legs spread apart.

One of the students said to his friend, “I’m sure he has Petry Syndrome – those people walk just like that,”

The other student says, “No, I don’t think so. The old man surely has Zovitzki Syndrome, he walks just like we learned in class.”

Since they couldn’t agree they decided to ask the old man. They approached the old man and one of the students said to him, “We’re medical students and couldn’t ignore the way you walk, but we couldn’t agree on the syndrome you might have. Could you tell us what it is?”

The old man said, “I’ll tell you but first you’ll tell me what you think?”

Then one of the students said, “I think it’s Petry Syndrome.”

And the old man said, “You thought, but you’re wrong.”

Then the other student said, “I think you have Zovitzki Syndrome.”

And the old man said, “You thought, but you’re wrong.”

So they asked him, “So what do you have?”

And the old man said, “I thought I needed to fart. I thought, but I was wrong.”<<

Randall, I do not let people stress me out and I don't stress over anything I don't personally control. It isn't worth it.

Laughter is the best medicine but I have found that people are offended by jokes regarding diabetes. I just figure they have no sense of humor. If you can't laugh at yourself, you shouldn't laugh at anyone else.

I use to sing that song all the time. Gonna have to You Tube the Guess Who.

I got it! Now that is ironic!

Here is one from me:
>> “Mr. Jacobs,” the analyst said, “I think this will be your last visit.”

“Does that mean I’m cured?” he asked.

“For all practical purposes, yes,” she said. “I think we can safely say that your kleptomania is now under control. You haven’t stolen anything in two years, and you seem to know where the kleptomania came from.”

“Well, that’s terrific, Doctor. Before I go, I’d like to tell you something. Although our relationship is strictly professional, it’s been one of the most rewarding of my life. I wish I could do something to repay you for helping me.”

“You’ve paid my fee,” the doctor said. “That’s the only responsibility you have.”

“I know,” Jacobs said. “But isn’t there some personal favor I could do for you?”

“Well,” the doctor said, “I’ll tell you what. If you ever suffer a relapse, my son could use a nice portable color television.”
