6 Things About Diabetes: Q’s Perspective

by Leighann on November 9, 2010

D-Blog Day '10Today is the 6th annual D-Blog day!

This year’s topic is: 6 Things I want people to know about diabetes.

You hear me talk all the time so I thought I would turn it over to Q to tell you six things she would like you to know about diabetes.

She cracks. me. up.

“In a fix.” Where did she learn that phrase?

Q is GREAT! Really enjoyed listening to her! 🙂

I think pods should come in different shapes and sites should last for 10 days, too!

Too stinkin’ cute!!
Love this line: “when you are very very high, like in the fifty hundreds….”

Awesome! Loved it, Q could straighten out this whole diabetes thing single handed. lol

All I can say is I hope my kid never gets in the 50-hundreds. I’m thinking you need to take a second look at your doses!

Had my three-year-old d-son watch. I think he’s in love with Q. His favorite number is fifty hundred…lol. Thanks Q, it’s nice for my son to see other kids with diabetes.
