Daily Nagging …

Eden is a kid – growing up fast and taking on more responsibility for her own life than an 11 year old should have to deal with. She has a VERY laid back, easy going nature which is wonderful and endearing but in the daily management of T1D – not always so great! She can be forgetful and is starting to think she “knows everything”.. Her favorite comment right now is ” I KNOW!”

Type 1 Diabetes is CONSTANT… constant finger pricking, relating BS numbers, counting carbs, dosing and the list goes on.

We are working on getting Eden to be more responsible and handle a LOT of the daily management herself. It needs to become a habit for her but lots of things distract her away from doing what needs to be done.

Every day I need to double check and or remind her – to be sure she is SAFE.

I don’t like it to be called “nagging” but I’m sure Eden sees it otherwise..  🙂

On any given day in our family you would hear ALL or a combination of all of these things..

every.single.day.

Do you have your kit?

Did you test? You need to test!

Did you wash your hands?

Wash your hands and re-test!
