I got a call from my doc today to review my most recent blood sugars that I had uploaded and amongst all of our conversation back and forth she managed to give a little praise...
me: I have a complaint from a type 1, I'm getting low too often and as a result, fat, I've gained five pounds from all of the sugar I've been consuming, can we do something about that? doc: yes, I agree you have been low often, let's adjust XYZ. me: (whew! I didn't have to argue) thanks doc: You know, your doing a stellar job! Just look at these numbers, this is so great, you should be so proud of yourself. me: silence. um, thanks.
As I tried to remember if a doctor had ever told me that I did a good job, I felt all of those endorphins rush to my brain and put me in a state of pure bliss. I felt so damn good for days.
Let's give it up for the doc who realizes what a little encouragement can do for the mental and physical health of her patients!
