diabetes blog week: share and don't share

Often our health care team only sees us for about 15 minutes several times a year, and they might not have a sense of what our lives are really like. Today, let’s pretend our medical team is reading our blogs. What do you wish they could see about your and/or your loved one's daily life with diabetes? On the other hand, what do you hope they don't see?

i wish they could see the random times my blood sugar is high for absolutely no reason. or the times it is low for absolutely no reason. or the unexplained up arrow on the dexcom after one day of exercise but not the next even though the basal rate was exactly the same. or why some foods, emotions, activities affect my blood sugar but not another person who has diabetes.

i hope they don't see when i ignore my dexcom/meter and eat whatever the hell i want even though i know i'll pay for it later. (diabetes guilt)

luckily, dr. awesome is also type 1 diabetic so he likely experiences the same things i do, and i'm grateful for that.

ps: new blog background!! just for fun and of course i had to stick with my cool mustache theme.
