Diabetes Blog Week - Day 7

so i realize i kind of dropped the ball on posting every day last week...i just had an unbelievably crazy few days, and i figured better late than never.  i am skipping day 6 on purpose because it's too late for me to take any pictures right now.

Day 7 - Dream a little dream - life after a cure. To wrap up Diabetes Blog Week, let’s pretend a cure has been found. We are all given a tiny little pill to swallow and *poof* our pancreases are back in working order. No side effects. No more insulin resistance. No more diabetes. Tell us what your life is now like. Or take us through your first day celebrating life without the Big D. Blog about how you imagine you would feel if you no longer were a Person With Diabetes.

i would go to max brenner's chocolate restaurant and eat some sort of obscene 392052 calorie dessert.  all by myself.

i would go for a run outside with no paraphernalia on me/attached to me.

i would go out at night with a clutch purse that barely fits anything in it.

i would drink a frozen margarita with some syrup-y flavor in it. 

my thoughts would be consumed with something else.

So many thoughts go into this disease everyday. From the moment my feet hit the floor its, what am I going to eat today, how many carbs are in it, what can I wear to hide my pump, etc! ARGH!

I had a very syrupy margarita the other night!! Yum.

really?? how do you bolus for it? i get scared bolusing for booze because it always drops me later...i stick to vodka/sodas and white wine, which is fine, but a margarita every once in a while would be nice if i could manage!

I have to admit, until you mentioned paraphernalia, I envisioned nudity. :)
