Years ago my hubby was T1, our daughter came home crying because one of her best friends couldn't come over to our home any more… I called the mother to ask why …"You ALL are drug addicts!!" Took a while to get the correct information out…too funny

Absolutely hilarious! I definitely can relate to most of those! Along with the "not looking diabetic" I also get the "you don't look sick" line too! LMBO

Thank you for brightening my day. I got a good laugh and it is so funny how some of these often happen to me. I was at the dentist with my husband and I had to test. I poked my finger and blood squarted out and hit me in the face. I ran to the bathroom and cleaned it up before anyone saw it. That was number 6. LOL

These were great. #20 was my favorite and I have found test strips in weird places...just not my fridge yet. LOL

I love number 28 "There’s never been any butter in your refrigerator’s butter compartment — it’s used for storing insulin."
In my entire life, the butter compartment has ALWAYS had my insulin in it!
Thanks for the laugh and smile Lou!

Glad you enjoyed it Jeff. I keep my insulin in the the vegetable crisper bin.

The funny thing is, even without the insulin vials in a protective case, I think I have only seen 4 or 5 break if they fell out of the refrigerator, those things are tough!

The trials and tribulations of dealing with the internet and ISP's and URL's and all that other alphabet soup…but at least there are no carbs involved!

I especially related to #5 The phrase “once in a blue moon” is a reminder that it’s time to change your lancet.
I can't remember the last time I changed it! There are also little drawings with each one that are amusing. #1 was "Every paper cut is an opportunity to check your blood sugar". Sorry the link didn't work for you.
