Sounds like fun…
I was lucky. When I was in college, my best friend (whom I always went out with when I was drinking) was a pre-med major and pretty much knew everything about taking care of me. She didn’t go into medicine, but she is an Emergency Medical Technician now and works another job, so she’s still always watching out for me.
Have you thought about having a “designated watcher”? Maybe someone who doesn’t always get wasted when partying, and you can teach them the diabetic basics? It helps, and then you don’t have to worry about not having any fun.
Sorry to hear about this experience! Who wants to be stabbed with lancets? We all hate it when we HAVE to do it!
I’m with Cara, I think that you should find a good friend to be watching over you if you’re going to be drinking— preferably someone who won’t get drunk… I used to have my friend do that and it gave me a sense of security and then he/she could stop people from doing stupid things like this!!
Are you going to talk to them about it ?
Well… i do have someone that keeps an eye on me but she went home early that nite as she had to be up for work!!.. i’m usually fine though and able to stay in control of everything… but hey, was my birthday lol.
I did talk to them about it but they turned it into a big joke, me an my friends dnt do serious lol. Thanks for reading this =)
