Who takes a day off from checking their blood sugar?? who eats whatever they want for just one day??? this Diabetic book i read said to take one day off from worrying about it. i was just wondering who here does that???
Just a thought: You said "a day off from worrying about it". That you can do. Worrying is very stressful and not necessarily productive. I definitely agree that you can eat well, test your blood sugar and bolus accordingly while not worrying. Enjoy your life, kick back, break free, and don't focus on diabetes. Sure. That's all good. There seems to be a school of thought that says we are worrying too much about diabetes or about "numbers". I agree. But that doesn't mean we go "whoopeee" and just toss it all away. That would be pretty counter productive, no? But worry? Obsess? Those we can lay aside.
My day off from diabetes is not working in it (I work as a diabetic mentor). It's nice for me to take a break from constantly checking for latest medical updates, etc. that I have to Tweet / Facebook / forum post, etc. Actually taking a holiday next month where I hope to not have any WI FI connection at all - so I'm completely out of the loop in the D-OC! LOL Though I will be meeting up with some friends who are diabetic from Germany and maybe Italy and Spain!
What's the name of the book and the author Iala_wolf if you don't mind me asking - I'm a cat \\^,,^// - always curious :) - it's in my nature - like a dog with a "squirrel"
the book is "50 Myths that can ruin your life and 50 facts that can save it." and it wasn't saying to stop taking insulin all together and to not test al together. it said to test a little less or skip a less important test. and use insulin just eat something you are craving and such.
