Reading through the fabulous book “When You’re a Parent with Diabetes”, I ran into a thought that made me sit and think:
“When you see a ‘good’ number, pat yourself in the back and note how you achieve that number so you can make similar choices in the future. If you see a ‘bad’ number, pat yourself in the back (for checking!) and consider what decisions or events caused or may have contributed to it -but only so that you can add that information to your arsenal.”
This was such a powerful thought. Though most of the time I do exactly as the book said, at times I do beat myself up over sustained highs: the numbers I can’t quite explain (or perhaps the ones I refuse to accept)… it’s certainly a day-to-day decision process, isn’t it?
What about you? How do you treat “good” and “bad” numbers?
