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 get up and have a great workout without worrying about going hypo. After a hot shower, I'd have a huge gooey cinnamon roll with tons of icing and butter. Then I'd go for a super long walk with hubby and pup, again with no worries of crashing BG. Maybe a movie in the afternoon with a big tub of popcorn. Dinner would probably be pizza, followed by chocolate cake with fudge icing. As awful as all of those choices may sound to some folks, that's not far from how a typical Sunday might have been for me before T1. I loved the carbs! But I have to admit, I don't really miss them as much as I thought I would. Feeling healthy and in balance really does go a long way toward softening the blow of feeling like I can't eat anything and everything I want.
