Accept Cookies. Now! #diabetic

I don't know if you've been on the web lately, but everywhere I go forces me to accept cookies. I'm sorry, but I'm diabetic. I CAN'T accept cookies. It gives me anxiety and a little bit of stomach acid to click "PLEASE GO THE FRICK AWAY" on every single cookie notice. Thanks UK. It is totally the GDPR's fault. I mean, sure, people should know when cookies are in use. But why not everything else?

Blood Meters Be Crazy

This morning my blood meter tells me:

"Your glucose level is a bit high. One call to a coach could bring it down. Do you want to connect now?"

- Insane Blood Meter

Um, excuse me...hi, card-carrying diabetic here. If I call a coach, then my blood sugar will come down magically? I don't think so. My blood is almost always at the same level every day, so I call bologna. Okay, maybe that's too strong a word. I'm a … Continue Reading...
