Diabetes and Humor


I have been surviving type 1 diabetes for more than 30 years. One of the things I have found to be most helpful is to keep a sense of humor about it. “Laughter is the best medicine” truly applies to us diabetics. We can laugh or cry. I choose to laugh. I don’t remember who said it, but I have taken this to heart, “every problem contains the seed of its own solution.” Channeling my diabetes humor into my Etsy shop has been very therapeutic for me and I love bringing a smile to the faces of my diabetes brothers and sisters. The ideas for my designs come from my everyday life and the highs and lows of T1D. Let’s face it….

We all know it. Diabetes is a ruthless foe. We can never call a time out and take a break from it. We don’t need a reality TV show, we live the challenge every day and the show is never over. Every day we wake up alive makes us the winner.

I know what it’s like to go out to dinner with family and friends and not be able to eat because my blood sugar is too high. We smile and pretend we enjoy just being there, but…

Sleepy Kitty Print Cat Wall Decor

This beautiful cat print is my latest addition to my Etsy shop. I truly enjoyed painting the original with soft pastels. It was a commissioned portrait. When I do commissions, I generally retain the publication rights, so I can offer my work in the form of less expensive prints. The abstract patterns in the fur just seemed to paint themselves. The lace curtains were a bit of a challenge but they turned out quite well. I can almost feel the summer breeze wafting through the window. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Where to buy Bitcoin

If you have ever been interested in purchasing digital currency, take some time to research it. I did and so wish I had bought some Bitcoin 5 years ago. I'd be sitting pretty now as the price has gone up astronomically. No worries though. If you buy now, like I did, the price is still expected to double by the end of the year and only continue to grow for the next 10 years at least. Coinbase is the platform I am using and I must say their security measures are as good as any bank. It's just not backed by the federal government. I wouldn't put my entire savings into it buy it is well worth investing some for the opportunity of high gains.

I know we are all looking for ways to make more money. Six months ago, I invested $250 in Bitcoin and Etherium. Today it is worth $1,460. I can't predict what the market will do in the future but it has been good to me. If you use my link to set up your own account, with the first $100 you invest, we will each get $10 free. Do your own research and only invest what you may be comfortable losing.
