So, yeah.......it's true...I'm a moron!
Saturday Cara wrote the blog I'm a moron.... explaining some of her recent goof-ups in her diabetes management. I wrote a comment saying I'd join the club because I've done the same things managing J.J.'s diabetes. HOWEVER.....I made a point to say that MY HUSBAND has forgotten to dose for a meal.
Well, since I wrote that comment I kept wondering WHEN I would forget to bolus for a meal.....because we all know PRIDE COMETH BEFORE A FALL!!! I knew I was somewhat gloating in my comment. I knew I wasn't the ONE to forget to bolus for a meal.......
UGH!! Do you see that reading!!?? UGH!!! I'm so frustrated..... yet a little part of me grins because I KNEW it would happen soon......but I feel SO INCREDIBLY BAD!!
J.J. was all geared up to eat lunch. His mouth was watering with the idea of grilled cheese, the last bit of crumbs in the chip bag, and a smoothie. BUT NOW....what is he having??......a TALL bottle of SierraMist FREE....no carbs....and a handful of peanuts....5 carbs. I offered him cheese....but he says HE's SICK OF CHEESE!! Can't blame him...I would be too!
So far this year is not starting off the greatest.....twice since the beginning of the year we've forgotten to bolus for breakfast. When Jason forgot I dismissed it as just weird scheduling....we were out of our routine, etc. etc. Well, what excuse do I have??(.....besides the fact that I'm a complete MORON???)
Well....I think a "good" one....J.J. was 70 before his meal and a little shaky, so I knew he was on a downward spiral even though he wasn't really low, but if I were to dose before the meal it'd be a little riskier for him. So when he's borderline like that I dose mid-meal or after the meal. THAT WAS THE PROBLEM!!! I meticulously added up the carbs in everything he ate....but didn't bolus before the meal like usual! BUT...like usual... I continued on with my busy day....and completely forgot! UGH!! UGH!!
So yeah....I'm definitely in the diabetes moron club....anyone else want to join??!!
