Man, sometimes I forget I don’t live in the DOC.
Yeah, so, I’m probably a little twitter obsessed. Just a little. I just love talking with other people who are diabetic on twitter. Being able to complain about being high or low or just anything and having people understand.
Saturday night, we went to a luau hosted by David’s church. I always underbolus at events where lots of food is available. But apparently, I didn’t this time! It also helped that we learned to hula after eating. I turned to the lady next to me and said, “This is doing wonders for my blood sugars!”
But instead of a celebratory “woot”, which I would have fully expected had I tweeted about this experience, I recieved a blank stare.
I tried to show her my CGMS, but it was no use. She had no idea what I was talking about or why the hula would affect my blood sugars, whatever that is.
It was just odd because a few months ago, I never would have even said anything about it. I probably wouldn’t have even thought about it! But I’ve come to depend on my online support group, and, being a millennial and dependent on technology, I forgot for a second I wasn’t living in computer world.
Sometimes I wish I had the DOC in real life. But alas, the world is full of people who don’t have a clue about life with diabetes.
