February's question for consideration (and blogging, and discussion, and videos...) is:
Imagine that the extra day in February that comes around every leap year was a day without diabetes. What would you do?
I find it almost impossible to imagine, and I'm sure I couldn't stop worrying about my blood sugar, no matter what. But it's still interesting to ponder... I think I'd wake up and laugh, then cry, and laugh, and cry .... And then I'd go to a restaurant and have waffles with butter and syrup. And then .... I don't know
What would you do? Write your thoughts below, or write a blog about it and post the link in the discussion feed below!
I would take Sophia on a little tropical adventure with lots of water play and yummy treats along the way :)
I wouldn't probably do anything much different if I had a Diabetes free day. I'm T2 and my management is not intrusive.
I would pass Caleb on to his grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins and let them do anything they wanted with him without worrying one bit about anything except that he's having a great, worry free time.
Donate to someone having a really hard time. I'm T2 and got D pretty well in hand & can cope wit it at present.
Play pond hockey with the boys all day long, until the ice melts around the edge. We fall in and laugh all the way home.
Ali has a fire going, real hot chocolate whipped cream.
Homemade chicken pot pies.
First I would sleep in late--I mean like until 10, I would wake up and jump in my pool (yes it is heated) and swim until I was prunie! Then I would have cold pizza (as much as I want) for a late breakfast with Dr. Pepper!!..Next, I would head down to the beach and drink Maragaritas and eat Conch cerviche on those wonderful salty crackers and a side order of fried clams.(Yum!!) I would spend the afternoon walking up and down my beach for hours and thinking only about the waters and shells!! For dinner, I would have veal scallopini on angel hair pasta with a bottle of Chianti!! (Oh yes, I will drink that whole bottle!!)..When I returned home, I would soak in the hot tub until midnight struck and I turned back into a Diabetic pumpkin!!
Celebrate! I think I'd do something like go on a hike or to the beach with my kids. I wouldn't have to worry about my insulin pump being in the way, my insulin getting too hot, needing to treat a reaction, having to plan around scheduled meal times, or having a combination of hypoglycemia and heat exhaustion (I'm very sensitive to heat and a reaction makes it that much worse.). I would enjoy the freedom. Then maybe go out for a really rich dessert. :)
I would do bread pudding. I WOULD MARRY BREAD PUDDING, in a secular ceremony.
haha, I love your reply!
I would do a dance of joy & thankfulness!
Easy choice; It's summer there so I'd climb Mt Kilimanjaro
