A voice for living well with Type 1 Diabetes

It’s 6:30 am and time to wake up. The only problem is I’m low.  And a bit creative.

Kendra nudges me and we start talking. She suspects something as I’m not making total sense. She asks if I’m low.

I respond with:

Yes, Yes I am!

I am so low that I am …. Marlo-o-o (long o’s) Thomas!

Marlow low Thomas!!

Marlo low low Thomas!!!

Each time I repeat the ‘That Girl’ actress’s name I emphasize and extend the lo in Marlo and enthusiastically crescendo while saying Thomas!

It’s comes out of nowhere and Kendra can’t stop laughing.

Thank you Marlo Thomas for a spontaneous and humous hypoglycemic episode.


Marlo(w) Thomas!
