During the every day mundane tasks, diabetes is still there. I found that out today the hard way. I have been on a roller coaster for the past few days, so the times I've been testing throughout the day has also been on a rise. Today I started kinda high, almost low, then bounced back up, and kept going. As I bolused on the way back from getting Girl Genius, I got the "oh so fun" No Delivery alarm. I was on the rise and definitely needed my bolus. I grabbed my pen, attached the needle and primed it. As I pulled up to a red light, I yanked up my sweatpants and got my pen all set up. This light is notoriously long, so I wasn't worried, I put the needle in, and the light turns green. I plunge the pen faster than I ever have before, all while taking my foot off the brake and trying to step on the gas, and steer. I get around the corner, and I take the pen out, shake my pant leg back down and continue on my way. By the time I get back to the Genius household, my BG is coming down. It may not have been the smartest or safest way to get what I needed. But it worked, and I got the outcome I wanted. After picking up Boy Genius from school, I changed my site and the rest of the day has been "fine."
By "fine," I mean that I found out that Diabetes Awareness Month actually means: Have fun on this roller coaster ride!
