Red wine and cheese............or didn't you mean that sort of bad habit?
I thought they were carb free?
Nah, just weird
In the best, most passive aggressive way
Drinking to much beer
What’s The emoticon for “fall about laughing” ))
Glad my bad habit is bringing joy to all. Smug face.
Some years ago I managed to get through a 5 kg plastic jar of Nutella over the space of 15 months. but bolussed for each spoonful, honest!!
Lancets sure last a long time and the tips can look gross under a microscope !!
I have repurposed used parts of pump reservoirs and needle sets (but not the sharps) for kite fittings,
I tried in vain to persuade the pump company to change the tune on the general alarm from Fur Elise to anything else, claiming near insanity as a reason !!!
On canoe trips in hot weather I would keep my insulin cool overnight by floating some of it in a fine mesh net, within a pool near the river. Thank heavens there were no floods or hungry animals !!
In the good old days when sharps bins had not been invented I kept at final count of 100 used disposable needles in my travel case until I could get home and find a suitable place to discard of them (a hospital near home).
On holiday in the all inclusive restaurant I'm quite well known for muttering quietly to my wife......
"did you see all that food on that plate I'd have to take an armful of insulin to cope with that..."
I do frown at other peoples eating habits...........
If testing during the choc biscuit binge do wash your hands to avoid fake sky high readings not caused by chocolate digestives...
Ambulance drivers once accused my husband of beating me up when called because I had hypo'd and gotten a black eye. They did not believe him until he pointed out that my high bg reading was in fact the honey on my fingers that they had failed to clean off when testing.
Not so much my bad habit but I do go along with it so I have to confess. When a work colleague asks if I could have time out for a hypo even when I am not. So we can both have a break.
Looking at peoples shopping trolleys in the supermarket and then thinking you have to be joking. And why should I feel guilty about my NHS drain when you will probably need them far more than me eventually.
Telling my wife I think I'm a bit low when she questions why I'm not helping with gardening, cleaning, decorating, pot washing or having a discussion.
Problem then is I have to eat
If I'm lucky I get a 20 minute reprieve but I can only get away with it once.
So now telling lies raises blood sugars too!
Yes. That's why honesty always pays young lady.
The people in my local supermarket must think I'm a total health nut with all the greens I buy for the guinea pigs
I tend to overeat to correct low blood sugar - it's almost like having a treat not that I would do that on purpose!
Not putting needles in sharps box next to my bed but throwing into empty glass jars in kitchen or handbag for weeks!
Not changing lancet...
Not using the bs meter zip bag thing and just throwing everything into hand bag..
Not organising any of my diabetes things and just having them in random drawers throughout my house
Guessing carbs and insulin stacking...
Loving the injecting 5 times normal amount post to eat a packet of chocolate biscuits hahaha have been contemplating doing that after a rough day at work
