Not happen long time. Difficult return this state. Naive: thought figure something out, thought kind of pro, thought so good no bubbles in cartridge now diabetes on short leash. Pffft. Bigfoot awake for night.
All day Bubs high, even wake up high. Many correction. Normal time for change site is evening; Bigfoot Spouse change little bit early because corrections not work. Then suddenly start work. But if not work because site worn out/clogged/whatever, why new site make corrections (from old site) work?
All day high: 178, 138, 232, 274, 253 (new site), 364, 288, 217, I feel low 127, I feel lower 109, I feel low again 91, 96 (bed), 78 (juice), 79 (juice), and…well, hello.
Bigfoot want remember something for future: other side this exhaustion so lovely. All week make plans, agree do things outside comfort zone, interview/hire additional dream T1D teen babysitter for enable more plans outside comfort zone, share 9PM lobster roll at bar down street, find awesome coat like Cookie Monster pelts, then this. Suck back into BG vortex.
Everyone snug in bed, Bigfoot try stay awake. So familiar. Hello again. Or maybe not so extreme. It only 1AM. Feel like 4AM for person sleep so well seven consecutive nights.
Meanwhile, Bigfoot <3 Bubs school principal. Even love Principal fanciful turn phrase “specialty area.” Send this email parents entire school (it Bigfoot color scheme):
During this holiday season, please remember that X School does follow the guidelines of the X School District’s adopted policy for wellness. Sweet treats and unhealthy snacks are not permitted. Please refrain from sending them in. I am asking that teachers do not serve these items. I will ask that you return any unhealthy food items to your home. It is a school committee policy that must be adhered to. As a school we prefer not to monitor this as education is our specialty area but several situations have arisen that have caused us concern. Please be considerate and a model to your children and follow the policy.
Maybe this in response Bigfoot friend T1D daughter class party w giant cupcake, arrive home BG > 1 million mg/dL. Could be related different (very very nice) friend purchase mini-bags chips + tube yogurt “healthy snacks” large school event. Nice try! Maybe parent complain? Maybe teacher? Bigfoot not complain Bubs’s teacher teen stepdaughter visit class, distribute Red Velvet munchkins, but only because try channel Meri apricot advocacy + like teacher so much + What Would Cinderella Do.
Part of confusion this policy = concept “healthy snacks.” Some family consider sweet yogurt healthy. Other family consider human consume cow anything = affront mother nature. Still other drive over border Connecticut where raw milk legal, ferment kefir in coat closet. Imagine parent share raw milk kefir for school party snack? Everyone complain.
Many consider Ultimate Healthy Kid Friendly School Snack = strawberry. Same time, many consider strawberry top vile pesticide food, adamant child not consume berry pesticide. Meanwhile, organic berries for 25 kids: $1,075.00. In terms cake, some family consider mini cupcake healthy, even though acknowledge unhealthy in/of self, but healthy if compare to cupcake size of human head. For Bubs, maybe smoke cigarette better health than cupcake size of head. But Bigfoot not pass around cigarette for healthy snack.
Very difficult get every family on same page re meaning healthy/unhealthy.
Some suggestions for healthy snacks everyone can agree on: raspberries, bacon, marijuana, Diet Coke.
