Freestyle Libre Silly Patches

Having diabetes (in my case type 2) can be stressful and frustrating but you can make it fun too. Who knew right? Diabetes fun? Are you serious?

Yes, I am actually, aside from it being a serious life-long chronic disease you can have fun with it. You can decorate your pump if you have one, which I don’t or your CGM, in my case the Abbott Freestyle Libre system. You can have fun with finding low carb, sugar-free, or low sugar recipes, including sweets. It’s a lifestyle change yes, and it’s not easy by any means, but as with anything in life, it’s what you make of it.

If you don’t like something change it, and if you can’t change it, change your attitude.

– Maya Angelou

I pretty much live my life by this quote. So instead of dwelling on the things I can’t change, I try to change my attitude towards them, how I deal with them. It’s not easy and am I always able to do that? No, not at all, in fact, a lot of the time it takes some reminding. But thankfully I have a great support group for that.

And so that brings me to the topic of this post. Silly patches and stickers. I almost always get mine from Pimp My Diabetes a cute little online shop that sells stickers, silly patches, tapes, and other accessories. This is the first time I’ve tried the silly patches and I love them!

Such a cute way to secure your sensor (they have a habit of falling off early) and show your device off in style. I have to admit they are really neat and I know in some of the Facebook groups I am in, that a lot of parents buy them for their kids. The thing is, this disease is tough, so why should having to wear a pump or sensor be just as tough, why not make it fun?

There are so many products out there, seriously, have fun with it!

  1. These patches are such a good idea! You have such an amazing attitude towards your condition. My ex boyfriend had type 1 so from an outsiders perspective, I know how diabetes can be. I love that quote you mentioned too. So true!

    1. Thanks, I figure I can’t change it and just accepting it feels like giving up, so I want to learn to embrace it. And yes the patches are wonderful and fun
