sooo I’m back upstate at school. JOY. lol. nah, school is going great so far, i like being back in my old dorm (we got new windows thank god!) and im living nextdoor to some really cool friends. so it looks like this year will be a good one -minus the INSANE amounts of schoolwork i already have. damn papers.
soooo now comes the troubles with diabetes. i FINALLY got my overnight lows to go away this week, by adjusting some basals, but now i keep peaking during the afternoon- particularly after lunch. never fun, especially when i have to head to a class with my bg at 260 or something like that.
i have yet to tell my new roomates and my RA about my diabetes, i mean i have only known these people for a few days so im still feeling things out, how they will react, how much educating i will have to do, so on and so forth. i would honestly prefer if they didnt know, so that they wouldnt treat me differently, but i know i have to- just incase something ever happens to me and i need help.
so my question is, what is the best way to tell them, or even bring it up?
they want to order pizza one night this week- which i know i wont be participating in, but i dont want to be the party pooper per say and be all " oh i can eat pizza cause i have diabetes" (pizza makes me pass out from extreme BG’s, so i just avoid it nowadays, much to my dismay i might add. i <3 <3 <3333 pizza).
i just want to tell them, without making a big deal out of it, or making myself come off like a ill freak. cause im not, its just a small aspect of my life that happens to affect a large portion of my choices and activities.
man i really want pizza. lol
