In Three Words: A D-Tales Contest

In honor of
My 100th post...


Just for fun
In three words
Can you describe
Life with diabetes?

What’s it like?
What’s your style?
What’s your deal?
You manage how?
You say what?

Describe daily life,
Hopes and dreams,
Trials and tribulations,
Likes and dislikes,
Highs and lows,
Ups and downs,
The numbers game,
The many supplies,
Blood checks galore,
Words of wisdom,
Mention one aspect,
Tell it all,
Whatever you like!

Anything goes here,
All ideas work,
No wrong answers,
Be creative now,
Have some fun!

Please play along!
Go for it!
Spread the word,
Get others involved,
Leave a comment,
Come back soon.
I’ll report results.

And there’s more:
I will pick
(Via random draw)
One lucky person 
As the winner
Who will receive 
A surprise gift!

I’ll go first!
My three are
(I have several):
I love Jack
Treat pray love
Always on it
Doing my best
Need more sleep
Pancreating with love
Shooting insulin daily


Your three are?
