This tag goes back a little ways. It was started by Kerri over at the fantastic Six Until Me. She describes it at as a blog meme just for those with wonky pancreases (and for the people who love us).
What type of diabetes do you have: Justin has Type 1 / Juvenile / Insulin Dependant Diabetes. You know, "the bad kind". I had to throw that one in there since it has been called that before.
When were you diagnosed: Justin was diagnosed on October 21st, 2008. He was 7 years old. Next month will be our 2 year "d-aversary".
What's your current blood sugar: Embarrassment sets in and my head hangs in shame... 275. Good thing Jen made me check. In my defense, today IS site change day and this does happen too often on site day 3. It is on my list of things to talk to the Endo about when we go next month.
ARE YOU LISTENING ONE TOUCH????
What's a "high" number for you: Over 150, but I don't stress until 250 :)
Describe your dream endo: Our Endo is good. A little stand offish, but ALWAYS spends ample time with us. I have never been rushed out of there and that is a huge plus for me. I do not have a whole lot to compare him to, so I am not sure what else I need in an endo.
Who's on your support team: My husband Anthony of course, but I feel so "at home" here in blogland with all my friends. I feel like I have many sisters. I love you all and consider you FAMILY.
Does that make me a bad D Mama? I TRULY HOPE that there is and will keep doing what I can to support the possibility. I just don't know.
What is a "cure" to you: RELIEF! A deep breath and a sigh of relief. Let's face it, we don't know what will happen tomorrow, but with a cure I would have one less fear in my life. THEN... I would sleep!
The most annoying thing people say to you about your diabetes is: "OH! My dog has Diabetes". I have had four people(one was a doctor) say this to me. Yeah! A little different than your dog!
What is the most common misconception about Type 1 diabetes: That WE caused it. WE ate too much
junk and drank too much soda. Some people are baffled by the fact that Justin is so skinny.
If you could say one thing to your pancreas, what would it be: DAMN YOU!!!! Damn you for being a quitter when Justin needs you.
Are you tired of listening to me yet??? Well lucky for you, I am done! I need to go get on that site change so we can kick some D ass. (I corrected by the way... I didn't just leave him like that~ sheesh!)
sitting and thinking!!!
She spells HER name ALL WRONG, but I love her anyways :) GIT "ER" DONE GIRL!
