I am so blessed. It's hard to remember that sometimes when you are under extreme stress. Yah law school! One of my best friends from college, (who I went on that Asia trip with) is visiting from Boston! We had an awesome time together on Sunday, and she gave me this adorable stuffed pancreas. It is literally one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever received. My mom even cried when I showed her. It's also extra adorable because my friend is in Medical school. lol. When she gave it to me, she started talking about all these functions and such of the pancreas , and I had NO CLUE what she was talking about. I'm really glad there are people in the world who know more about my pancreas than me, especially when they are my friend. :) In the attached booklet, it has a cute little biography. My favorite part are the likes and dislikes.
Likes: cookies, cake, candy, insulin Dislikes: diabetesWe have very similar interests!! This thoughtful gift really got me thinking...I spend a lot of time thinking about how much I hate diabetes, and how it is a negative thing. But when she gave this to me, I smiled. Diabetes doesn't always have to be thought of that way. Here it took my friend to give me a stuffed pancreas, that is FOR SURE more usual than my current one. You can get your own HERE.
