Waiting on Diabetes

Inigo Montoya: But, I promise I will not kill you until you reach the top.
Man in Black: That’s VERY comforting, but I’m afraid you’ll just have to wait.
Inigo Montoya: I hate waiting. I could give you my word as a Spaniard.
Man in Black: No good. I’ve known too many Spaniards.
Inigo Montoya: Isn’t there any way you trust me?
Man in Black: Nothing comes to mind.
Inigo Montoya: I swear on the soul of my father, Domingo Montoya, you will reach the top alive.
Man in Black: Throw me the rope.

If you’re a regular viewer of my blog, you’ll know that most of my posts are geeky, sciencey, biochemistry, diabetic health stuff.  Well, I’ve been writing all day and my brain hurts, so I wanted to take a vacation from the science.

Now that little exchange up there, is one of my favorite all time movie scenes, because I too hate waiting.  Now this isn’t a complaining post, it’s just going to be a little brainstorming for myself about all the things I have to wait for with my diabetes.  Lets see how many I can come up with:

  • Waiting for meter to show blood sugar
  • Waiting for blood sugar to come down
  • Waiting for blood sugar to come up
  • Waiting for insulin pump to rewind
  • Waiting at doctors appointments
  • Waiting on blood test results or A1C numbers
  • Waiting for insurance to pay the bill
  • Waiting for supplies to arrive in the mail
  • Waiting for . . . lets not talk about that
  • Waiting for a closed loop insulin pump
  • Waiting for a cure

Did I miss anything?  I know I did.  What else do we wait for with diabetes?  Comment below!
