I used to wish for an assistant. You know, the kind celebrities have to handle the everyday, mundane tasks like grocery shopping and answering the phone.

Today, I realized what I really, really want instead is a diabetes butler. I'm feeling some diabetes burn-out big time and I'm having a hard time shaking it.

This would be a total non-issue if I had a diabetes butler.

Wouldn't it be so amazing to just pay someone to constantly check your blood sugar, count your carbs, get you glucose tabs and juice, change your infusion sites/administer shots, keep track of the expiration date on the glucagon, argue with insurance companies, schedule your 487291278 appointments, and pat you on the back when diabetes just plain sucks?

I'm sure my husband would find it a little intrusive, but I'm sure he'd eventually get over it.

Jeeves! Where are you? 


  1. Just hang with a D-mom... it's what we do!

  2. Oh, HECK yeah. I need a Jeeves in my d-life, too. :-)

  3. LOL That would be FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!

  4. I TOTALLY need a D- Jeeves! Also, a Mr. Belvadere for all the boring housecleaning stuff!

  5. This is a genius idea!!!! Would insurance cover it?!

  6. I am my daughter's Jeeves. :)

    Love your blog.

    1. Your daughter is a lucky lady :)
      Thanks so much!
