Memories: #DBlog Week, Day 3 May 16, 2013

Dblog Prompt: Today we’re going to share our most memorable diabetes day. You can take this anywhere…. your or your loved one’s diagnosis, a bad low, a bad high, a big success, any day that you’d like to share. 

I can’t say I have a most memorable diabetes day. Or at least, didn’t want to think that hard about it. So I thought instead about one of my funny lows (or at least now-funny lows). A someone of mine and I had a friend who was excellent at math, I think he was an accountant or had some mathy career. One night the someone woke me up to test because Dex was beeping low and I was blowing it off, you know, because Dex was wrong.

I was absolutely convinced that Dex was wrong and I remember making a pretty big deal about Dex being wrong. How this someone had the patience for me, I have no idea. Then I tested. I can’t remember the number, but it was a definite confirmed low. At which point, I went into a whole long schpeel about how we needed to call our math friend (it was 1 am or something ridiculous). I refused to drink juice or eat a snack because I did not want to treat a ‘not low’ number. I then apparently delivered a significantly long explanation about how the calibration between Dex and my meter was incorrect, with attempts at actual science and math talk. I then tried to explain that if we called our math friend to run the numbers, he would help me prove that I was not really low.

And this conversation went round and round in circles for who knows how long…dude, just drink the damn juice and go back to bed…

Ok, I have to admit, picturing this cracks me up! 🙂 Like you were going to logic your way out of treating a low! Haha!
