but those finger prickers for diabetes testing HURT!!!
I think appropriate pronouns would include:
Yup, gestational diabetes and I are going to become well aquanited with one another these last 8 weeks. I've got my gestational diabetes diet plan and finger pricker and an unanswerable craving for chocolate...specifically Kemps Double Fudge Moose Tracks Ice Cream.
Hmm...hopefully Self-Controlled is another noun I could be called.
