Keep Calm . . .

HAWMC_2012_dayprompt-9Keep calm and carry on. Write (and create) your own Keep Calm and Carry On poster. Can you make it about your condition? Then go to ( and actually make an image to post to your blog.

I really love today's prompt, because I just don’t find it easy to keep calm when diabetes isn’t playing fair and my blood sugar is out of whack.  So I created two Keep Calm posters.  The first one is for when my blood sugar is way too low and I’m feeling like I should eat everything I can get my hands on.

My reminder that 15 grams of carbohydrates is usually enough to banish a low blood sugar.

The second one is for when a stubborn high blood sugar is working my last nerve.

My reminder to relax and give my insulin time to work, rather than continuing to take more and more and more!!

What will you Keep Calm and do?


  1. I think I should print both of yours out as a reminder. Guilty of both!

  2. Thanks, Karen!

    These are very funny and lightened up my day after a particularly hard easter (everyone eating chocolate - boo for us Diabetics!)

  3. I especially like the crown that goes with both of these! Very appropriate!

  4. Karen, I love these both!! Nice job!!

  5. Great reminders Karen! i should add them to my fridge collection!!
    especially the one for lows!

  6. ahah, yes, we do both of these in our house. awesome!
