It is the holiday season.
Office Parties. Potluck gatherings. Treats and sweets. Large family meals, sometimes more than once (you simply have to eat at both sides of the family, if you are lucky enough to have them both local).
Food, food, food, and more food.
A time of year when we are perhaps most thrown out of whatever regular routine we have worked so hard to cultivate.
A time of year when knowing the exact number of carbohydrate grams is a luxury not often enjoyed.
A time of year when the SWAG and LADCS bolus methods are heavily employed.
A time of year that causes some of us a great deal of anxiety because we worry about our blood sugars.
I present to you, my dear fellow Persons With Diabetes, a gift that will make this year’s holiday season that much easier (at least once).
Use this token when you need it most. You can cash it in wherever you are and whenever you feel you need it.
A time when you feel you most desperately need that target blood sugar.
But choose wisely, because you only have one, and it expires at the end of 2006.
Happy Holidays everyone! Be good, be safe, have fun, and worry just one token less than you might have.
I will be around, commenting on all the blogs I love to read. I might even get smacked with an idea for a post or something like that. If that happens, I’ll surely get it posted.
But I wanted to at least give my gift before I got wrapped up in “stuff” over the next handful of days. Besides, I’ve never been good at keeping things to myself.
