Today I realized my frequently used phrases may sound weird to someone who did not know about diabetes..
For instance "Craig has been high all day"
may sound a bit odd... but what I mean by that is that his glucose numbers have been high all day...
OR " Madi is low, so she is sitting out"
which means she is having a juice for now until her glucose numbers get up to a good number, then she can play :)
I feel like its common talk now and sometimes I forget that other people have no idea what Im talkingabout...
Heres a laugh for you..While driving across the country last week, I pulled over to give Madi a shot of insulin because she was very high and wanted a snack.... An officer pulls over and asks what we are doing..So I say, "Oh we are fine, she just needed a shot"...He seriously looked at me so crazy!! Then he drove away..
I thought it a bit weird that he gave me a crazy look, then went on his way instead of asking what the heck I was talking about.. but maybe next time Ill just say they needed some medicine :)
Im always open to questions, so if I say something that sounds weird and you are wondering what it means.. just ask!
