Just spotted this thread, what an awesome subject "Things I like about being diabetic" This is so uber awesome it should be made a sticky!!! For me personally there's several things I actually enjoy, like being healthier, energy levels being high due to dietary changes, looking good in the mirror after losing weight , better mental health, a more optimistic outlook on life, and like Spiker above said ^ the gadgetry. A prognosis of living longer than I would have done without being diagnosed diabetic. Diabetes has motivated me into making the changes I know I would never likely have made, without it. I feel sorry for non diabetics!
