You know you’re a T1D mom when…
*you carry a bag, not a purse.
*you’ve always got juice and/or candy on your being.
*you wear a smart watch, but the numbers on your watchface don’t represent the time.
*people wonder why you are constantly checking your phone and/or “the time.”
*you know how many carbs a piece of bread, an apple or a bag of chips has.
*you can look at a plate & figure out carbs in minutes.
*you see that the speedometer reads 55 and you automatically reach for some Skittles.
*you don’t think twice when you ask your child if he/she is high.
*the techs at the pharmacy know you by name.
*you carry around needles and syringes like it’s no big deal.
What can you add to this list?

You find discarded/used test strips on your kitchen counters, in the floorboard of your car, and on every other livable surface in your house.
Your personal fitbit/sleep tracker shows that you got up more than 5 times a night. Even more on a rough night….
You have a sharps container on your kitchen counter that is likely an empty laundry detergent bottle. LOL
Ha ha! YES!!
