When was the last time you had a naked shower?
It’s been about 10 years for me.
😀 😀 😀
A couple weekends ago I popped into the Connected in Motion virtual café at the tail end of a conversation about naked showers. Honestly, I was like w’oh what have I just walked into, here?
I could have asked, but you know, naked showers seemed rather risqué and I wasn’t sure I really wanted to get into the details with a group of near strangers.
A few days later, though, I came across a blog post from Myrthe over at girlOninsulin that explained the whole naked shower, T1D thing.
Yes folks, it is a thing.
Ahh, diabetes terminology, you get me every time!
I’ve had type-1 diabetes for 32 years and still I can’t keep up with all the terminology.
Apparently, in the T1D world, a naked shower is a shower without any infusions or pods attached.
Like I said, it’s been a good 10 years for me: pumper since 2010, Libre wearer since 2018, podder since 2019.
Now you know 😂
There are so many T1D terms – bolus, basal, gusher, diabestie, CGM, MDI, FGM, DOC, rollercoaster, diaversary, diatwins, poker, etc., etc. – and I could define them all for you here, but I thought, hey, someone’s already done that, and she’s got a pretty great website/blog, so why not direct you over there!
For more T1D terminology, give Myrthe’s post a view; she’s seriously got you covered!
What is the craziest T1D terminology you’ve heard lately?
