Today’s Prompt: Start out by thinking of a health cliche that really bugs you. What are you tired of people asking you or saying to you again and again about your health or health condition? Write it down. Then, instead of critiquing it (as we often do) – today, reclaim it!
 
Cliche- Type 1 Diabetics cannot eat sugar.
 
Type 1 Diabetics CAN eat sugar.  Here are some things I love to eat sometimes, including, but not limited to:
  • cupcakes
  • Ben & Jerry’s ice cream
  • grandma’s chocolate chip cookies
  • mom’s strawberry shortcake
  • frozen custard
  • grandma’s red velvet cake with buttercream frosting
 

Do I eat this stuff all the time?  No.

 
But I can and do when I want to!
