One Does Not Simply…

Have you guys seen the Boromir Meme?  I always chuckle when I see it.

According to Know Your Meme:

The phrase “One does not simply walk into Mordor” (no comma needed) originates from a Council of Elrond scene in Peter Jackson’s 2001 film adaption of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring[1]. Whilst (sp) discussing how to destroy the ring, Elrond explains that the ring can only be destroyed at Mount Doom and that someone must venture into Mordor to do so. After a silence where no member volunteers, Boromir points out the difficulty of this task by saying “One does not simply walk into Mordor.”

I can’t help but think of diabetes related stuff when I see these.

In General

One does not simply "control" diabetes

Exercise

One does not simply exercise

Sleep

One does not simply go to bed

Lows

One does not simply treat and wait

Food

One does not simply eat when hungry

Highs

One does not simply treat and wait

More food

One does not simply count carbohydrates

So many of the simple things in life that many people take for granted.  Eating, sleeping, exercising.  With diabetes, we do, indeed, walk into Mordor every single day.

What others do you guys have?  Has this been done before?
