Third Annual Diabetes Blog Week! The assignment for today is to talk about one thing we could improve on in our diabetes management. I didn’t have to think much if at all, about what that thing would be for me. Carb counting. Or maybe I should say accurate carb counting.
I fully recognize the critical nature of counting my carbohydrates. I know that if I don’t get it right I’ll end up too high or too low shortly after (though, to be fair, even if I do get it right that may still happen). But there is something that bothers me deep inside about having to count my food.
It’s not necessarily about learning to eat proper portion sizes. Even if I ate less, I’d still have to count it, and that bothers me.
Diabetes in my life has led to an unhealthy relationship with food. I have a lot of anger around that. When I’m ready to dig in and work on it, I know I’ll have my hands full and will need a lot of help. DOC – I’ll be leaning on you guys, big time.
