Lately Elise had been complaining during her finger pokes, exclaiming OUCH every time we tested her. Since Mattias was born, we've been seeing a few behavioral issues (not towards her brother, who she adores, but cries for attention in other areas)... my daughter seems to have discovered her flair for the dramatic.
I haven't been doing a whole lot of BG checks, but I kept telling her to not be such a drama queen when I heard her cry out. Last night, I did her bedtime check and when I poked her finger, I noticed it bled A LOT. And just kept on bleeding. I glanced down at her lancet and saw that it was turned to the DEEPEST SETTING.
How terrible am I? No wonder she was crying out during every finger poke and I just ignored her. I felt sick to my stomach as I hugged her and told her I was sorry that we had been hurting her fingers.
I'll take my award now, please.
