The candy factory? But I'm diabetic.
Seriously, that would have to suck. I mean, that was supposed to be the highest honor in that story, but what if you couldn't enjoy it properly?

Written for #SixWordStories's theme prompt: I've got a golden ticket.

Honestly I haven't went to doctors to confirm yet but going soon and unfortunately it is hereditary :(. My grandparents both had it and my parents are both borderline . So sadly I am scared to find out but have to face reality that I have to give up my chocolate :(

I know a little how that feels. My aunt and grandfather have both been diagnosed, and after having gestational diabetes, I'm in a higher risk category for developing type 2 within the next ten years. I'm hoping I can stave it off with smarter eating choices and exercise. I don't want to give up my chocolate either.

When the results come back it will probably be type 2 because I never had it when I was born. I just remember my grandfather using a needle to give himself a shot in the stomach. It wasn't a pretty site :(.

Oh, yeah. That is no fun. I was on insulin when I was diagnosed. You get over your fear of needles pretty fast. But still not something I would want to do on a regular basis.

To be fair, those things came as prizes in candy bars-- and why would you be unwrapping one if you were diabetic?

A very fair question. If a diabetic person were to carefully manage their blood sugar levels through diet and medication, sometimes they can make room for sweets.

Mmmm. It does have its limits. (I'm type 1--was diagnosed when I was 7).

HOWEVER--it's not really the amount of sugar in a food that we worry about these days; it's the amount of carbohydrates. We can have candy every now and then, so it would still rock to have the candy factory, I think. We'd just need to be careful not to eat everything in sight. ^.^

Nice take on this, though!

I had gestational diabetes during my last pregnancy. I remember the nutritionist hammering that idea home. Watch your carbs! But it also turned out some ladies could watch their carbs and still spike their blood sugar having a pop tart. I was lucky enough to be able to sneak some chocolate into my diet without doing any damage.

Ooh, type 1. I don't hear a lot about that. Has it been difficult to maintain/live with?

Yeah, Diabetes is a tricky monster at times. I'm having trouble with my night sugars, but am working on it. And this morning was a bugger...my sugars refused to rise above 50 for a while.

Living with type 1 is a challenge, for sure. And it's always changing. Things that used to effect me one way might not effect me the same now, that sort of thing. I've only just started to be able to maintain it with any amount of suitable control; my last A1C (the blood test we have to have done every 3-6 months to see how our sugars have been overall) was the lowest I've had since I was diagnosed, which is great, but it's been a struggle getting it that way.

Oh, wow. That sounds like a lot to deal with, but that you're dealing with it very well. Congrats on getting your A1C down. :) And thank you for sharing that with me.
