DAILY THOUGHTS OF A ME, A TYPE 1 DIABETIC
Do I need a snack? Do I have enough glucose tabs with me?
Where’s the juice? Is that bolus worthy? I have to pee again, am I high?
How many carbs are in that? Is that person staring at me testing?
How much should I decrease my basal for my run/bike/swim? For how long?
What was the last thing I ate? Am I talking funny? Did I remember all my vitamins?
Do my feet hurt/tingle/burn? Do I have enough pump supplies at home?
What’s my blood sugar? Do I have enough insulin in the fridge?
Am I hungry or low? Why am I high? Why am I low?
Is my vision ok? Is that person staring at my pump?
My head hurts. Am I high? Am I low? Is it just a headache?
Is the time on my pump right? Do I have my back up pump supplies with me?
Is that adrenaline/anxiety/nervousness? Or am I low? Is the time on my meter right?
Why am I so grumpy? Am I low, high or just grumpy? What finger did I prick last?
Ouch that hurt! Where should I put my next infusion site?
How many test strips do I have left? Did I submit my claim to the insurance company?
Will I make it through the night? I am sweaty. Am I low?
