Oopsies

As I said here, I can eat pretty much anything I want, so long as I give additional insulin for it.

Nonetheless, it's still kinda embarrassing to have your pump-educator/dietician catch you buying your celebratory post-appointment three musketeers bar at the little coffee stand outside the clinic.




Quote of the day: "Yeah, sometimes the boobs get in the way."

Said by aforementioned dietician/pump-educator (and pumper) as I moved one of the twin peaks out of the way so that I could see what I was doing as I attempted to insert an infusion set.

OMG! My diabetes educator, who is pre-diabetic, and I were pregnant at the same time and both of us laughed our butts off talking about moving "twin peaks" to give daily shots. How funny!

I used to have very small boobs, and coveted large boobs until I started breastfeeding, got large boobs and realized that you are right, they do in fact get in the way and are kinda a pain in the ass.

Erm... not a problem I have *blush*

Art, if you're feeling awkward about eating any Three Musketeers bars in the future, you know you can always send them my way... ;-)

Do you put a site in your boob? Because that's making me grimace just thinking about it.

Julia -

OWWWW! No!

(No three musketeers for you for making me think about that...)

The problem is that I am, um, "generously endowed" and have trouble seeing what I'm doing in my stomach region when I look down.

Can't wait to see what kinds of search strings this one gets me.

Caro, I don't have a problem putting away the 3M bars! But I'll send you one - when's your birthday? And do you have those yummy honeycomb bars in England?

Yummy honeycomb bars? Crunchy honeycomb stuff covered in a thin layer of chocloate? I guess that would be like a Cadbury's Crunchie.

My birthday isn't until January, but I guess I'll stock up on Three Musketeers when I'm over shortly.

Honestly, my US junk food addiction is getting way out of hand. I was discussing Lucky Charms and Oatmeal Creme Pies earlier this week. I guess you always want what you can't readily have!

Oh, and I do have a healthy diet, I don't eat this stuff all that often!

I am not diabetic so my boobs don't get in the way of that sort of medical procedure....but since I was ten, they've been getting in the way of everything else.
Sigh.
