    I know it was mentioned before but I gotta say my fave is wtf.

    There are no juice boxes in the house - WTF!

    I just dropped the insulin and it broke and spilled all over the floor - WTF!

    I forgot to bolus for dinner - WTF!

    My insurance company doesn't cover that - WTF!

    Since diabetes, I have become a very frustrated person MOL (more or less).

    This is brand new (since I just invented it) but when someone says something really dumb about diabetes and you can't educate them, you can use the NSCS method. NSCS= Nod, Smile and Change the Subject.....:D
