Have you ever been in that “spring cleaning” mood? Over the weekend I was. I’ve been sick for the last few days and I thought a deep cleaning of our bedroom would make me feel better. My idea was to wash everything on our bed (comforter, sheets, pillows etc) and do major vacuuming, mopping of the floor and dusting.
In doing so, I pulled out my night table to get the dust that collected. At first, I found some test strips which I had expected. They tend to fall on the floor when I’m checking my blood sugars at 3:00am. What I found next I was not expecting…
I found proof behind our bed that a diabetic lives here.
Look at all those juice box wrappers! A whole bunch of them behind my bed.
Yup, you’d think a child slept in this bed. You’d think I never cleaned. And you’d think I’m a slob.
Well, I’m not. I’m just a type 1 diabetic trying to correct a low blood sugar in the middle of the night.
