of all places to discover i was low, it had to be at the neuroscience clinic today. i’d developed a foot drop while warded and it’s been recovering well, but i had to go for an appointment today.
i had my usual 20 minute jog on the elliptical machine this morning, followed by a good shower, and a drink of water. i was so focused on getting all the stuff i need into my bag, and so i completely forgot to have a snack!
my appointment was at 12.10, and i usually have lunch around 12.30. And it just so happened that i had to wait…and wait…and wait. waiting is usually frustrating enough for the uber-impatient girl i am.
but i was getting grumpy for no apparent reason and i was really, REALLY hungry. so out came the one touch ultra metre, and i pricked my finger.
just a mild one. i wouldn’t have to treat it should a meal be nearby, but because i was two patients away from seeing the doctor, a snack was necessary. I got a tuna bun from the bakery downstairs and munched on half of it. Stomach temporarily satisfied, I saw the doctor and soon, lunch was in my tummy for real.
that was definitely a horrible reminder that snacks are not always bad for me (i tend to have that mentality at times) and that i MUST remember to have it when necessary!
now i look forward to the diabetes nurse’s weekly nagging when i report to her next tuesday. oh boy. (that aside i know she cares, i could just pass on the nagging.)
