What type of diabetes do you have:
I'm a PofCWD....Parent of a Child With Diabetes. My oldest daughter has Type 1. Someone told me once that it was the "bad kind".
When were you diagnosed:
She was dx on 7/25/05 at the age of 24 months
What's your current blood sugar:
How did you know that it's time to test?
**Hold that thought....be right back**
K -- 100 at 11:30 pm -- maybe I should have waited because now I'll spend the rest of this meme trying to decide if I should do something.
What kind of meter do you use:
Sugar's PING remote. We use One Touch strips and I miss the Freestyles, but what's a D Mama gonna do? We have a bunch of One Touch Mini's stashed in various places as well.
How many times per day do you check your blood sugar:
8 - 10 times
What is a "HIGH" number for you:
250. I'd say 200, but sometimes I'm thrilled to see 201.
What do you consider "LOW":
Anything under 70. She can sense them pretty consistently in the 60's.
What is your favorite low blood sugar reaction treater:
Juicy Juice 4oz box....Sugar like Starbursts (4c each) too.
Describe your dream endo:
Let's see....she would know Sugar well....take the time to establish a relationship with both her and me too....she wouldn't criticize a higher than expected A1c and would always return e-mails or respond to requests for help as promptly as possible.
She would also be married with two little boys :)
Oh, wait. I think I just described our endo!
Who's on your support team:
GOD! He knows we couldn't do this without him!
Mr. Rose....he can do it all. I couldn't imagine this journey with anyone else.
My mom....always willing to learn and wants me to sleep when I visit!!!
Nurse Carla....what would I do without her???? She takes IMPECCABLE care of Sugar during the school day and I can't even begin to describe how much this means to me!
Do you think there will be a cure in your lifetime:
I don't know. I pray for a cure, and I trust that God's timing is perfect.
What is a "cure" to you:
Complete insulin/glucagon regulation, without horrible side effects!
The most annoying thing people say to you about your diabetes is:
"Thank goodness you're a nurse." NOTHING in nursing school prepared me for this beast.
The most common misconception about diabetes:
That it's JUST DIABETES...no biggie...sure there's risks, but at least you can control them.
If you could say one thing to your pancreas, what would it be:
Didn't you get the memo? GET WITH THE PROGRAM!
To celebrate making it half way through NaBloPoMo, I'm nominating my pal, TRACY!!!!!! Take it away, my friend.....
