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'd do all the things I want to do but always feel too tired to do. I would have no "funny turns" to bother about; it would be brilliant!
I think I would indulge in some French toast and maple syrup for breakfast, pizza for lunch and some lasagna or spaghetti for dinner followed by the best chocolate cake ever. But that's in a perfect world and not happening any time too soon, lol. But we can dream.
I would start out going to grandma's for pancakes and waffles with strawberries and butter and maple syrup. Then I would have an all-fruit all-day marathon while I run a marathon! And then I'd finish up with my great-grandma's home-made bread with honey and butter :D
It's really funny how food from your childhood never leaves you, even when you don't eat it anymore.
I'd spend the day with jrtpup!! Toss the pod & the Dexie and order the waffles.
LOL Ellie, come on over!
I'd leave everything at home, just go for a looooong walk, sit with a friend in a park, eat when I felt like it or not at all, and not have to worry once about checking anything, carrying anything, or being attached to anything. What that would feel like...
I would drink Diasrono Sours all day while eating ice cream, indian food and dim sum. Maybe I'd go for a long run or swimming at some point too, since I wouldn't have to worry about my blood sugar dropping. I'd also walk through every airport security checkpoint or government building security checkpoint I could find since I wouldn't have to explain why my pump wasn't a bomb threat and why it's perfectly fine to have a bunch of syringes and pointy things in my purse. Oh, and I'd wear some kind of very tight/sexy dress because I wouldn't have to worry about where to hide my pump.
Ummm, that's a good question! Sitting here thinking about it and having a hard time coming up with something. At this point (after 10+ years of being a diabetic) it's pretty much embedded in my brain!
I would do a 24 hour mountain bike race SOLO.
I know i could go faster not thinking about all the d stuff.
And after if i still had time i would eat everthing in sight.
I totally agree!
Seriously? I would hide all my meters; all my emergency sources of glucose; my pill bag with all my diabetes drugs, insulin pens, insulin vile,syringes,pen needles,alcohol pads, etc.; all low-carb and sugar free foods! Not read any of the numerous email newsletters pertaining to diabetes. Not worry about checking my feet or other body parts cuts, scratches, blisters etc. Not worry about having to eat on a regular schedule, drink some good booze! Wow-that sounds awesome!!
