The Advantages of Having Diabetes - 30 Health Post in 30 Days




Ok, so there are some advantages of having diabetes.  Like...back in Jr. High and High school.  There were days were my blood sugar wouldn't be high enough that I would be able to run the mile.  Sweet.  Maybe this is why I haven't run a mile straight since I was in 8th grade... :)  Being diabetic I always have some sort of food on me and situations where you're not supposed to have food and/or drink, I'm allowed to.  When I get a blister I can just suck the juices out with a syringe....gross I know, but really convenient!  I was allowed to eat and go to the bathroom as much as I wanted in school.  

Not only that, but diabetes was used for the benefit of my sister!  When I was in 9th grade, Jennifer was in 12th grade and she was able to get out of class to 'help' her diabetic sister.  We had a class in the same wing that year and every so often I would see her walk past the door of my classroom...
