D-blog week day 3 - Memories
Today we’re going to share our most memorable diabetes day. You can take this anywhere.... your or your loved one's diagnosis, a bad low, a bad high, a big success, any day that you’d like to share. (Thanks to Jasmine of Silver-Lined for this topic suggestion.)
I decided to write this from M's point of view since she is the one living with diabetes, not me. If you ask her what her most memorable diabetes day is she will look at you kind of funny and say "I don't know" This is because to her diabetes is not the memorable part of her day. To her what she remembers is the game she and her friends played on the playground, the funny thing that happened at school, the cute dog we saw at the park, the monkey she got to pet at the zoo on her field trip, that she was able to do five underwater flips in a row when we went swimming. That is what is memorable to her, the fact that she is getting her BG checked and getting shots before eating is not what she remembers. I would like to keep it this way for her as long as possible.
