Sometimes I feel as though we're the only family who does not yet use a Continuous Glucose Monitoring System. Though we're inching closer.
If not, then I'm certaily the only parent of a child with diabetes who has not read and highlighted every one of Gary Schneider's books.
Unless we're battling something significant or dangerous, I don't stay up all night checking blood sugars. If my daughter's number is 200 at 2 a.m., I'll give a small correction and go back to sleep. Shhh.
Does anyone else out there feed their child (gasp!) cereal in the morning?
Are we the only family who's never been to Friends For Life?
I'm guessing I'm not alone. Everybody's different. It's what makes the world go 'round, in a general sense for sure. It's what makes the diabetes blogosphere so great too. We read eachother's opinions. Sometimes we find soulmates who are quite like us. Sometimes we get talked into trying a new tactic, or file an idea away for a particular situation. Sometimes we're left scratching our heads. But it's all good because regardless, we're made better by sharing our thoughts and ideas with eachother.
It's 'leave a comment day' in the diabetes blogosphere. If you identify with any of the above, leave a comment and let me know I'm not alone. If you think I'd be better off for changing my ways, let me know that too. I know you'll be nice about it. Or do you have thoughts about how our differences make the blogging world better? Or if that's all too much, just tell me your favorite summer beverage...that's easy, no? Whatever it is, bring it on. I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts!
