Diabetes Blog Week: One Great Thing

posted by on 05/15/2012 | 114 comments (leave one of your own)

It’s Day #2 of D-Blog Week: 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!

Last week, Zoe got invited to the movies with a group of friends.  One mom was going to stay with them while they watched the almost three hour long show.  My plan was to stay and sit two rows behind her and stare at the back of her head for any signs of hypoglycemia, but I had her four year brother with me and the movie was too much for him.  I wanted to stay because what if something haaappppppeennned but Zoe told me it would be fine, she would be fine. “Look Mom, I packed extra taffy and I will only eat it if I need to and my glucose meter has a light, perfect for checking in the dark movie theater…”  She even looked up the carb count for popcorn and reassured me should would have diet soda or water.

And she watched the movie. And I ran errands and bit my nails until I could go sit in the lobby of the movie theater and wait for her to come out.


I’m pretty sure I could sit at my laptop and write and write and write for days and days and days and spectacular doesn’t even begin to describe my best girl.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of
    exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any solutions to help protect against content
    from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
