I was very happy that I was able to have my CGM on for this difficult weekend, although it kept telling me I was higher than normal, it was good to see where my blood sugar was at. The last thing I wanted was to excuse myself to go test my blood sugar. The CGM made it possible for me to be as "normal" as I could be.
Leanne and I made sure that I had a bag full of diabetes supplies just incase my blood sugar went to low or high during the weekend. This bag went everywhere we went and I wasn't afraid to have a big bag of food as we went to events where having a bag of food and diabetes supplies is not the norm. It is so amazing what communication can do, as Leanne and I entered the funeral home we were told that bringing food in was not allowed. Rather than yelling Leanne and I calmly explained how I was a Type 1 diabetic and that I needed this bag of supplies just in case. Everyone was very accommodating and I had my own room if I needed to get any of my supplies.
Today it was tough to get back in to the work groove mentally and as a diabetic. That bag of food turned in to a number of Gatorades and a box of fiber one bars but I had all of the supplies I needed in case I was low. It was an up and down day but I can't complain.
