As the title suggests today brings a little bit of everything, first off why is that when I know that I'm low I will test my blood sugar with an apple juice next to me?? This often happens after a long period of physical labor at work, I know that I'm low so why did I just drive a golf cart in to test my blood sugar. I know I'm below 60, why not drink the juice and then test? I secretly think that I want to see how low I am. My other thought is that since I was little I was told to test and then treat the number.
My next odd topic, if you are going to send me an email about a new diabetes app for my phone, make sure it works!!! I like diabetes apps, they make tracking my blood sugars more enjoyable and give me something to do when I'm bored. This afternoon I got an email from a company telling me about a new app, the app looked good so I was excited to download it and start using it. When I signed up however I was told that I was unable to connect to the servers. Sorry but I don't need that crap, I don't care how great your app is if it doesn't work I'm not going to use it.
My last rant is about work and diabetes. I have a great job and work with amazing people. With that said, why is it that when our boss gets food and drinks for a big job we finished, why is it doughnuts, pizza, or regular soda? I will then be asked "Why aren't you having any of the food?" I could see this coming from someone that doesn't know much about diabetes but this person is a type II diabetic. It is very confusing, what makes it worse is when I will be questioned about a "bad" food that I'm eating to treat a low. "Soda?? that's not good for you!!!" It is odd, I would say something but the other boss will always ask if I will eat the food that they are getting. It is nice having "family" at work.
