HAWMC#9: Keep Calm
I have more than used my two get out of posting free cards. My daughter had surgery and between caring for her and caring for my son on top of Easter weekend...I am exhausted, emotionally and phsyically. Seriously, I want to just crawl into a ball and disappear for a while. Is there anyone out there? Is anyone reading? I am truly curious, and it is hard to tell by the sheer lack of comments. I LOVE feedback. I try to leave it when I visit, won't you consider doing the same?
Todays prompt was to create a keep calm poster at this really neat site called: Keep Calm-O-Matic. I've seen these posters in a lot of places, esp. Pinterest. And, since I am trying really hard not to dissolve into a ball of anti-social selfishness, I gave it a try. WEGO asked us to create a poster that related to our condition. Immediately these two things popped into my mind. If I have these two things (and the means to dispense the insulin) in my posession, I have the means to keep my son alive. Insulin to combat HIGH blood sugar and candy to combat LOW blood sugars. I carry both of these things with me wherever I go. Because I have learned, that D doesn't like to play fair and just when I think I have things figured out, it likes to completely change the game...and sometimes, D just likes to be completely irrational. In all cases, I have to be calm so I can best figure out what to do for my son and we all know that panic is contagious and spreads like wildfire...so the best things I can do is:
And sometimes...SOMETIMES, I think Seth secretly likes to go low, so he can pop a couple packs of smarties in front of his sister...oh the sibling rivalry...and therefore my need to curl into a ball of anti-socialness. Any ideas for combating THAT?
