Yesterday I talked about all the things I’m learning. Today I am thinking more about the things I just don’t know yet.
1. I’m diving back into the dating pool at least partially using online sites and this leads to the first question. When do I mention that I’m a diabetic? Part of me feels like it shouldn’t matter to someone who might potentially date me, but another part says if it becomes serious, my disease will affect the person too. Right now I’m thinking maybe during a first date if it’s going well. But, is that too soon? That bullet point was a two-fer!
2. This time of year I get cold a lot. However, my blood sugar dropping also causes me to feel cold. I find myself testing a lot to make sure I’m really just cold because of the temperature and not because my levels are low. Is there another way?
3. Is there a way to make the pump not buzz or beep when it’s on Suspend because I’ve taken it off? It’s disruptive and I know if it’s not connected to my body!
4. Is it rude that I’ll check my levels wherever I am (ex – dinner table with friends at a restaurant)? To me it’s just a drop of blood and it’s required, but I suppose I could go to the restroom or something instead. Reading reactions other people have had is part of what makes me question this.
That’s all for now. 🙂
