Today while at work, my blood sugar was falling out of range and my boss paged me over the intercom. I quickly paid for my “snack” and headed off to see what my boss needed. What was waiting for me was a boss with an hour long job that needed to get done immediately. I told him I’d have no problem getting it done but needed about twenty minutes before I started. He looked at my orange juice and said “No problem, go eat and then get this done.” He didn’t yell at me or say no, that would never happen but for some reason I always thought it would.
It still bothers me that I need some time to fix my blood sugar but I’m happy that I can finally be okay with saying “I need to fix this before I do that”. It also helps that I have some great coworkers that totally get me and understand everything that comes along with my diabetes.
