one great thing-day 2

 One Great Thing - Tuesday 5/15
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! 

hmm well....fasting Bg checks? nope. remembers to bolus for everything? nope. takes meds on time and daily...sometimes. never forgets pump on the bathroom sink while leaving for work? well...nope...doesn't over treat lows? yeah..not. logs? you mean like writing down bgs or cutting down trees? well, either way its a big fat NO. though cutting down trees might be the more likely thing to happen. 

after a running discourse of all the things i don't do and kinda feeling like i am a pretty lousy PWD sometimes, my sister came up with "most likely to have every supply you could possibly need at any point in time" yeah, pretty true. i over pack. i am over prepared for anything diabetes related. i can supply all my friends with at least a days worth of supplies when i travel.  

so my one great thing is i am totally prepared about 90.2% of the time.
