For years when I was first diagnosed my only option was orange, when I would have a blood sugar that was out of range I dreaded putting that orange chalk like life saving food in my mouth. I would much rather keep a small juice box in my pocket than the glucose tubes.
As time passed glucose tabs were eventually put into these very convenient tubes that made carrying them easier and with that the taste improved. Time after time I would just toss the tubes and think nothing of it. Then I met the girl of my dreams and had to figure a way out to hide the engagement ring for the day I proposed. I mean a box with a ring it has been done. What about a glucose tab tube with an engagement ring in it??
Saturday morning the ring was in the glucose tube and I hoped for the best. Heading off to an island and having a picnic made the glucose container the perfect spot for the ring. I could leave the glucose tabs in my pocket or put them in the bag and kate would have no idea that I had the ring with me. Everything would go as planned and I even got a smile and a small head shake when I took the ring out of the glucose tab container to propose.
It was a very special day and having glucose tabs be a part of the engagement was interesting but made it unique.
