-I hate pretty much all commercials related to diabetes. Especially now that Elise is paying attention (I don't normally watch daytime TV when the kids are not at school, but I am guilty of turning it on when I nurse Lucas). The one that really gets me is for "diabetic nerve pain". All of a sudden the questions tumbled out:
- What is diabetic nerve pain?
- Why does he have it?
- Can I get it?
- Why is it bad?
- How can he have diabetes? He's not a kid!
How do you explain to a 5 year old the complications of diabetes? And should you? She doesn't really even understand. Ugh.
-Each birth after Elise's dx has given me a bit of a glimpse of what it must be like to have twins. Now, I'm not saying I know what it's like to have twins like those my-cat-has-diabetes-so-I-get-it people, but think about it; a newborn needs constant care. So does diabetes. A newborn is exhausting. So is diabetes. A newborn keeps you up at all hours of the night. So does diabetes. It is so tough when both are demanding my attention at the same time.
-Keeping your face too close to your child's foot while doing a BG check in the middle of the night might just result in a kick in the face. Consider yourself warned.

And a few of you were interested in hearing Lucas's birth story. I've written it on my other blog here if you want to read it.
Is it really March already?
