*Sigh* The last few days have been hard work! I’ve spent some time at the top of the sugar-coaster, and some right at the bottom. I’ve worked hard at trying to avoid the oscillations… and failed. Days like these make me want to just have a break, which is where I got the following idea: a diabetes-sitter.
I know it sounds ridiculous, but this week, I just want to give someone all my meters, prickers, needles and pens and have them in charge. No need for me to think about all the factors affecting my blood glucose, food and insulin. For a few days, I’ll happily hand over finger tips and belly flab, but I just don’t want to have to THINK!
Things aren’t helped by the fact I’m on the road today and tomorrow, and picking up our new house keys later in the week! I guess for now, I’ll get my chin up and carry on, but if you would like to apply to “baby-sit” my Type 1 Diabetes (it’s a little well-behaved angel which needs feeding 4 times a day with insulin), please leave a short CV outlining your skills for the job, together with 2 references, in the comments section.
Until next time,
The … Diabetic
