As I sat on the bus to work this morning – my headphones leaking Megadeth out to my suffering fellow passengers – I had a phone call from Katie: “You’ve left your testing kit on the stairs!”
Curses! So after getting off the bus, I walked to Boots a bought a new meter. It was a shade over a tenner and I’ll use it as a spare. Crises – such as it was – averted.
As I started typing this out I felt a touch low; so I used my brand new kit to test my blood glucose – 3.3. So I reached into my desk drawer, picked out some of the stash of Lucozade tablets I had there, ate a few and carried on with writing and my day.
With problems with my diabetes being so easy to solve, it’s no wonder I don’t write on the blog as much as I used to. This very article clearly demonstrates that writing about such mundane, effortless fixes is somewhat dull. So, instead, let’s celebrate that – while it can have its ups-and-downs – diabetes can be one of the easier conditions to live with. Huzzah!
P.S. feel free to use the comments below to tell me how wrong I am and how diabetes is a waking nightmare, etc., etc.
