1. Apparently I like to change my infusion sites in my car because I have been doing that a lot lately.
2.After going to the Divas meeting the other night I’m wondering how many people actually follow a “diabetic diet”, or just count the carbs and bolus accordingly. They were talking about protein portion sizes, and the food pyramid. Yea, I’m not so great with any of that. I figure if I’m eating veggies and counting my carbs and blousing and not eating super sugary/greasy foods I’m okay…. Right?
3. I hate the phrase that as a “D” I hear all the time. “ You can live a normal life, you can still do whatever you want to do.” Really? How “normal” is pricking my finger 10+ times a day? How “normal” is having to sleep, eat, breath and live with a battery run cyborg part as a pancreas? How “normal” is doing math and blousing at least 15 minutes before eating? How ‘normal” is having to pass on a work out because of a high/low bg or having to eat just in order to do said work out or eat right after or during because of a low? As far as doing whatever I want to do? Well, I can’t be a stay at home mom because I have to have health insurance. I’ve been thinking about going to school to become a CDE/dietitian, but I would not want to do that part time and going full time wouldn’t be possible with a full time job. So, do whatever I want to do? Where there is a will there is a way??? I’m not too optimistic on those points right now.....
4. I’m still totally burnt out and in a funk (like you couldn’t tell), I’m trying to find the beauty in things, but I’m feeling pretty defeated lately. I’m really praying that I get over this soon.
5. Not diabetes related, but totally stoked that hubby’s bro and family are in town. We only really get to see them tomorrow but I cannot wait to see the babies! Ok, so 4 and 2 are not really the ages of babies, but still. And I’m stoked to see of course my sister-in law and bro-in law. I think we may be doing date night tomorrow. She is preggers right now and still kinda sick so it all depends on how she feels. But I know I at least get to see them tomorrow afternoon for my nephews birthday party!!!
