A small diabetic pleasure
Little orange cap popping off
Glimmer of happiness
In case you don’t understand that terrible haiku, one of my favorite things about diabetes (believe me there aren’t many) is when I open a new bottle of insulin. There is just something so satisfying about popping the little orange (or purple or maroon) cap off an insulin bottle. I don’t know why but I cherish it. I savor it. I tell my t1d friends and they jump on the bandwagon and join me in treasuring that half a second. That sweet, tiny diabetic piece of happiness.
