-Sleep deprivation is totally a form of torture. Oh. My. Damn. I have never wished myself dead before, but I never want to be that tired again. Granted, not all of it was due to diabetes; we had night terrors, stress, and a baby who didn't give a flip what time it was all in the mix. But we did have our share of lows and one high that didn't help matters. We're still having night issues, but do get a good night here and there. And it makes all the difference in the world.
-Did you know that if you don't wash your hands after handling fruit and you check your blood sugar, you can end up having a false high reading? And did you know that this surprised the doctor who was relating this story on the news? And did you further know that they actually spent money to do a study on this??? Holy crap, my head about exploded when I saw this on the news the other day. Methinks that money could have been better spent. Hell, I could have told them that for free.
-My little girl is smarter than that doctor in the paragraph above. If you remember last month's "Things...", Elise was lamenting that she wanted to have the same snacks as the other kids at school. When I finally got my act together and figured out the carb amounts for what they serve at school, Elise told me she would rather eat the snacks that I pack for her because they are "healthier and make her body feel good". Awwww, music to my ears!
