Diabetes dont have me I have diabetes
I blog to get things off my chest about diabetes. I think you would enjoy my blog, which is centered on my life with type 1.
Ok...so I was diagnosed when I was 13 years old and I am 28 now....wow where did the 15 years go? So, I was reading this entire thread and saw a lot of my horrible habits, some that I still have not gotten rid of but am working on. To the young lady who is not checking your sugar, I did that....so bad that I eventually got tired of all the questions and decided, you know what.....I quit. I did. I stopped taking insulin and stopped going to the doctor for about 6 years. It took me going into the hospital, falling in a diabetic coma for 3 days, and my boyfriend/fiancee telling me that if I didn't start taking care of myself then he was leaving because he wasn't going to sit back and watch someone kill themselves every day....to realize I couldn't run away from the "problem". I have learned, now that I have had my scare, that the questions, though they seem annoying and intrusive, they are to help. Hell, sometimes I still don't see why I am being questioned when i do what I am suppose to, yet my results come back in a negative way....it's just the day to day that you have to get through. Yeah, you are going to have your highs, lows and everywhere inbetween.......it's ok. Find ways to "play" with your insulin. Find the times that your BS is running high.....certain parts of the day, or after a workout.......bring that to your doctor and tell him/her.....Look, here are my problem times, this is what I was doing, now what can we do to fix it. Take some control of it and maybe that will help a bit.
I wish you the best.....=)

One day my class was going to the ropes corse and I was really excited because all that stuff I LOVE! I had been 54 in the morning after playing some games, before lunch I had been 124, and I didnt give my full dosage....while we were walking to the corse I didnt feel well and the teacher only had 2 bags of mini pretzels 3 starbursts and 2 juices. I tested and was 28. I was sooo scared! She tries to call the school and her phone has no minutes. So I sat on the ground for a good 10 minutes waiting for someone to come pick us up which finally happened. When I got to school with the nurse I had taken a few more juices and was up to 120. I went back to the ropes corse to do it got there and ended up being 60. The nurse wouldnt let me do the ropes corse. I was soooo upset! I hope you know you arent the only one who has days like that, I do too!!! Hope it helped!:)

My school is a summer camp in june and July, and a school the rest of the time. We walk about two miles a day between classes and chapel and everything. So, dealing with lows is a common thing! We have open range to ziplines, ropes courses, repeling towers, and the lake. I'll say the easiest thing is to carry glucagon tabs(FLAVORED!!!! the plain ones taste like chalk :P) in your bag and get your nurse or teacher to carry them. Juice makes you shoot up, but it doesn't keep you up. Glucagon or other "heavy" carbs that aren't just sugar will help you more :) Hope that helped!
A day at a time....
You mean glucose tabs, right?
