Right, theres more disadvantages to this condition then advantages but i know i have used the oul 'oh no, my sugars are low ' excuse to get me out of something i dont want to do!!! its cheeky i know but works a treat when the right occasion comes along!! I ll give u an example!!
The other day i was out shopping with my mam and after 2 long long hours of going round the shops lookin at the repetitive clothing line i finaly had enough!! Before i could say anything to my shopaholic mother she says right, will we head next door to have a look at the clothes in there?
Straight away i said ' actually im feeling on the low side, we should go for lunch now !!!' Now thats using your condition to your advantage!!! i used to do the same thing in school !! maths was never my favorite subject so as soon as the teacher would come in i would wave my glucose kit at him and head out the door with a bottle of coke in my hand!!!
Its like that episode of scrubs where Turk would use his 'blood sugar is dippin' excuse so he could score a cookie or a sandwich!!!
So has any of you done the same thing?? share your stories, and before you all jump down my neck im not encouraging any of you young diabetics to skip classes- school is cool but the oul 'my sugars dippin' has scored me plenty of free cookies in the past!!!
