Moments of Wonderful - …rather than a lifetime of nothing special. A diabetes blog.

Diabetes in the kitchen

You know you have diabetes when…

…you didn’t buy any of this candy before Halloween.

… you bought it at the local pharmacy the day after Halloween when it was 50% off.

… you picked up the candy while also picking up some more “typical” diabetes supplies (causing some suspicious glances from the cashier).

… you get a bowl out to put the candy in but don’t throw out the original wrapping right away.


And most of all –

You know you have diabetes when you leave yourself a little note on the fridge.

    I feel really self conscious when I buy four bricks of juice boxes and a giant bag of Smarties. Without diabetes, I would NEVER put those in my cart!

    I’ve resorted to committing those numbers to memory in previous years. This year, we still haven’t had Halloween yet (thank you Sandy), so I have an ample supply of full-price candy, not the half-off stuff.

    I like that magnet on your fridge. It’s a blue circle. It’s an M&M. I’m not sure if there’s a correlation, but it sure is tempting!

    I love the note on the fridge! Mine usually look cryptic, something like ‘sw pot 3oz/20g’.
