My best friend honestly is the best person in the world she has made me smile so many times about my diabetes never thought that it would be possible when it came to it.One time it was me and her went out for some things can’t remember what for but I was having one of those days that I would go low every couple of hours and I would check so she said I wish that I was diabetic as well, my jaw dropped and I said that I would not wish it on my worst enemy let alone my best friend she then went on to say that she understood but how much fun it would be checking our levels together and having to take our insulin at the same time. She made me smile but I still said that I would not ever wish it on anyone ever as it`s like a life sentence something that on my min d 24/7, that makes life that little bit harder.
Then another day it was hot and we both met up with a friend that had come down after such a long time most of the day my levels where alright expect one time, while they were looking at some sweets from our country I was checking my level and then saw that I was hypo took a glucose tablet and she asked me how are your levels? She saw I didn’t think she did figured she was more interested in the sweet I then explained how I was low she goes then you should eat that sweet stuff in the bag your carrying, which I had forgotten all about lol.
I was so surprised I was like you know the difference didn’t think you would, she then went on to explain of course I know if you’re low you obviously have to eat something to bring it up and if you’re high I do not think it’s a good idea to eat something as that will take it higher.lol
I am in aware I am like people that I live with still don’t understand the difference she then went on to say that it’s her job to understand as she is my friend so that she could know what to do if the worse was to happen.
Then the rest of the day I was like wow, shocked, surprised but realised the importance of friendship when it comes to diabetes and how nice it is to talk to someone about it.
