Living with diabetes (or caring for someone who lives with it) sure does take a lot of work, and it’s easy to be hard on ourselves if we aren’t “perfect”. But today it’s time to give ourselves some much deserved credit. Tell us about just one diabetes thing you (or your loved one) does spectacularly! Fasting blood sugar checks, oral meds sorted and ready, something always on hand to treat a low, or anything that you do for diabetes. Nothing is too big or too small to celebrate doing well!
I have to admit, even if my whole day turns out to be a diabetes train wreck, I always get it started on the right foot. Diabetes is probably one of the first things that crosses my mind when I wake up in the morning. Okay, maybe COFFEE is the very first thing, but I’ve usually at least taken a look at my CGM before my feet hit the floor.
I head downstairs and start the coffee brewing and feed that cat . . . . if Pete hasn’t taken care of those two things already. And then my one great thing happens. Every single morning while the coffee brews I change my lancet and do a fasting blood sugar reading. Yes, that’s right, (for once) you aren’t seeing a typo. I change my lancet every morning. And that is my one great thing!
