We don’t always realize it, but each one of us had come a long way since diabetes first came into our life. It doesn’t matter if it’s been 5 weeks, 5 years or 50 years, you’ve done something outstanding diabetes-wise. So today let’s share the greatest accomplishment you’ve made in terms of dealing with your (or your loved one’s) diabetes. No accomplishment is too big or too small – think about self-acceptance, something you’ve mastered (pump / exercise / diet / etc.), making a tough care decision (finding a new endo or support group / choosing to use or not use a technology / etc.). (Thanks to Hillary of Rainie and Me for this topic suggestion.)
Bigfoot greatest D-achievement is chill the fern out. CTFO skill come and go, Bigfoot strengthen and develop like atrophied muscle.
PHASE 1: Bubs bicycle to school & Bigfoot bicycle too AND before even click into helmets test BG even though within hour tested/ate breakfast. (Can see now why Dr. Doughnut found test excessive. Live + learn! Still think Bigfoot needed all them strips, because how else parent learn CTFO?) PHASE 2: Bubs bicycle, Bigfoot walk dog entire route to school as excuse for scan side of road for child in coma. PHASE 3: walk dog but not all way to school, but then call school make sure Bubs arrived. PHASE 4 (current phase) = walk dog, Bubs pedal off out of sight, no call school. Just walk dog until dog freak out because golden retriever OR cat OR Fed Ex. Now it more dog problem. Dog really need CTFO.
Difficult Bigfoot CTFO because seem born no internal anxiety gauge. Everything equal anixety. Everything red alert. Try instead everything beige alert. I.e. alert, but not continuous fret.
