Ok, not really but the new purse is nice.
Last month I ended up with several “must-have” items to carry in my already-full purse. Things that take up space like a glucose meter, insulin pen, alcohol wipes and glucose tablets. I told Brad, “I need a bigger purse!”
To my surprise he said that yes I do and that I should “invest” in a nice purse. One that I can enjoy carrying (is that possible?). So off to the outlets we went to find Rachel a new bag.
I proudly reported that I got a new purse and a nifty little bag. Here’s the bag:
If I’m going to have to carry this stuff around for the rest of my life, it might as well have an attractive bag.
Could this be considered diabetes-induced shopping?
I’ve been asked to share a picture of my new purse. Here you go:
let’s see the purse too! and hey, it was a necessity and a treat all rolled into one, can’t beat that, right?
Hasty iPhone photo added!
And no, you can’t beat that! 🙂

I just discovered your blog a few weeks ago and have been reading along. I was only diagnosed in September 2011 myself at 26.
However, I have the SAME Coach bag for my supplies too! My mom bought it for me shortly after diagnosis, figured I might as well have diabetes in style!
We’re both about as new to this. But, exactly, if we’ve got to have this stuff we might as well make it stylish. Thanks for commenting.
You sound like you’ve adjusted REALLY well to this new situation. I feel that I’ve done a good job managing my diabetes, but I’ve developed anxiety since diagnosis!
