It’s almost bloody Christmas again.

A time for joy and happiness.

I hate it!

I remember Christmases before I was diagnosed:

Turkey dinner

Beer

Mince pies

Beer

Cake

Beer

Whiskey

Chocolate

Whiskey

Whiskey…

But now I have Type1 Diabetes!

So how does Christmas look now?

Turkey dinner

Beer

Mince pies

Beer

Cake

Beer

Whiskey

Chocolate

Whiskey

Whiskey…

I’m not going to let some condition that I just happen to have ruin the bits of Christmas that I actually like.

A few more BG checks to keep an eye on progress.

A bit more insulin when needed.

Then repeat for New Year’s Eve.

So whether you will be waiting for Big Ben to give you a bong, or your balls to drop in Times Square, enjoy Christmas. Here’s to 2017. And bollocks to ‘betes!

Live long and bolus,

Grumps

Festive as ever.
