Please don’t judge me for getting excited about finding toaster strudels in the freezer this morning.
I did everything right. I tested my blood sugar, I counted the carbs, I even set a mental timer for when I could actually eat (doing the pre-bolus thing).
But as my morning escaped into afternoon, and I started feeling worse and worse, a quick review of my bolus history was missing the most important part of my plan.
For all of the planning, counting, calculating, and waiting (it was more than 20 minutes, yo)… a TON of work, all in my head, and I forgot to actually take the bolus.
I thought I was being SO good. I was SO disciplined to have delicious frosted toaster strudels chilling (literally) on a plate right in front of me for so long, waiting for the insulin I hadn’t even taken to start working.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.— Eleanor Roosevelt, “Hammer Time” on Alecia’s Blog
