Blog Week Post 5 - What They Should Know

What They Should Know

Karen over at Bitter Sweet is hosting a Diabetes Blog Extravaganza!  This week bloggers will come together to post thoughts, feelings, ideas and much more in an effort to raise awareness about type 1 diabetes.

Today's post is on What They Should Know.

I went back through the Naturally Sweet Archives and found this oldie but goodie and for your reading pleasure, thought it might be a good fit for What They Should Know.

It is the little things...

A finger poke with a nice blood droplet.

A perfectly healed up arm.

A non-hurting site injection.

A sister-to-sister meter race that ends with a tie.

A waiter who actually understands why you need an appetizer STAT.

A nurse that turns the other cheek when you steal latex gloves in order to create a chicken head.

A friend who thinks your pump is cool.

A doctor who doesn't emphasize an unattainable A1C.

A neighbor who offers to watch your girls for an evening.

A loaded carb treat just because you want to.

A perfect carb free treat because you want to.

A flat line on the CGM.

A coach who isn't scared to play you.

A teacher who understands the need to wait for an in-range blood sugar.

A test strip discovered in a remote place to remind you that others have walked the same path.

Most importantly,

A day where you forget all about type 1 diabetes.
