"My Blood Sugar Must be Low"
As you will come to learn in the next few months, I LOVE to ski. My “tagline” is that I’ve been skiing longer than I’ve had diabetes. (By just a few months, but nonetheless, it is still true.) In real people world, I’m also one of the shyest people you will ever meet. That is why I joined the Boston Ski & Sports Club last spring so I could meet people. I’ve played tennis and kickball with them, but now it’s winter, and ski time. So I joined the adult team racers (ATR). It starts in January and I cannot wait. On Tuesday night we had our get to know you/learn everything you need to know dinner. As we were all mingling, a few of us were talking about how we were pretty hungry. The girl I was talking to all of a sudden said, “my blood sugar must be low.” I needed a Twix moment so that I could pull up Kelly’s Blog and respond. But as I was trying to respond these thoughts kept running through my mind.
If I make a smartass comment, what if she actually does have diabetes too? She never actually mentioned diabetes. Her description is actually kinda sorta accurate. She has no idea that I have diabetes either. I ended up saying nothing, and went on through the rest of the night, but this has definitely been kicking around in my brain.
