Bear Grumps – Survival Guide

15 May

Not sure I have any Diabetes Life Hacks.

Well, none that I’ve not already stolen off other PWD.


So here are a few of Grumpy’s tips on how to survive in the wild when you have T1D….


Bear Grumps

If your HCP is giving you shit about your HbA1c, Tell them that you will reduce your A1c when they reduce their bloody waiting room times.


If you want to keep the seat next to you on public transport empty, simply place a used insulin vile on the seat and your journey will be free of unwanted companions.


When asked “are you allowed to eat that?”, make sure that the answer is made clear by writing the word “YES” on your fist, then punch them in the eye.


Always carry a small piece of emery cloth in case your lancet gets rusty. After all, you don’t want to get an infection.


Pump users. When asked “If I press that button, will you die?”. Gently reply, “NO! YOU WILL!!!”


Pump users of one specific Animas model. When in a shop, remember to ask quietly, “Do you have any batteries? I am desperate for a new one for my Vibe”. Unless you want to make new friends there of course.


And the final two:


Never Let Diabetes Beat You

Live Long and Bolus
