3 Truths and 1 Lie.

Tell us 3 things that are true about you, your condition, your Health Activism, or your life. Now tell us 1 lie. Do you think we will be able to tell the difference?
I’m the first to admit I’m a terrible liar.  And on top of that, there isn’t much I haven’t shared on this blog already.  So figuring out a lie that might be believable was tough, but I gave it a shot (no diabetes-pun intended).
  1. For most of my life, I didn’t want anyone to know I had diabetes and went to great lengths to  hide it.
  2. I can remember lying awake as a teenager thinking that I'd never be alive to see my 30th birthday.
  3. In my almost 32 years with diabetes, I've been lucky enough to never have had a seizure from a low blood sugar.
  4. During my entire four years at college I never once tested my blood sugar.
So, how did I do?  Can you spot the lie?   Leave me your Lie Pick in the comments and we’ll see if I’m as bad a liar as I think I am!!

  1. I'm going to go with #4. Just because I can't even imagine not testing for that long. I mean, I can see a long period with a test -- but four years! I'd go crazy not knowing!
    Fun game. Thanks....

  2. This is hard since I've not been reading your blog for all that long. I'm going to guess #1 because you said "most of my life". I hope it's not #3. I thought this prompt was fun, but mine made a wee bit sad.

  3. I am going to go with #2 because I'm not sure teens think that far ahead. I buy #4 cause I have a college kid . . yikes. Although I HOPE that is the lie! Cannot wait to hear. CLever post.

  4. I have to say #4. There is no way you could go 4 years without testing... right?

  5. not a fan of #2 or #4, so i'm hoping it's one of those...

  6. I know the lie isn't #1 for sure because you write about it and we talked about it in person. Sadly not #2. Can't figure out between #3 and #4. I think #3, though.

  7. Hi, This is the first time I have visited your blog. Great post!
    Knowing what I do know about Diabetes I am going with #3..

  8. I'm trying to decide between #1 and #4. I can't decide because I can see lots of people doing #1 (I know a lot of people who do that now). And #4 because, for all I know, that was before modern blood sugar meters came out (not that I think you're OLD, because I don't, but I'm not very clear on the timeline). I'm going with...#2? #3? Okay, I give up. Let us know!!

  9. i'm going with #4, but i bet i've been close to 4 yrs!

  10. Please tell me it's number 4! Hey, I was thinking this would make a good Diabetes Blog Week topic.

  11. i;m guessing 3 or 4. hey this was fun. next can we play 'i never'? ;)


Thanks for your comment!
