I love that my grandma cares about me, but what the heck? Im looking at this magazine that has a billion and one sweets. Im sitting there saying oh that looks yummy and stuff like that and she says oh you aren’t supposed to have that. I love you grandma, but I can eat that I just need to make sure I bolus correctly sheesh. she has always been like that, I remember when I was probably 12 and I had gone to her kitchen a had a bite sized candy bar. she practically yelled at me to never eat those because I shouldn’t eat them. I guess it’s because that’s how she was raised to treat those with diabetes. Deny them sweets and that will help them with blood sugars. I know we all have those people in our lives.
I was wondering what do you do when someone snatches a treat or a much needed carb out of your hand or makes a comment like that?
