#7 - Blaming Diabetes #NHBPM
I know I am not the only one that instantly thinks diabetes when something --- anything is wrong with a non-D kiddo.
I'm embarrassed to tell you that I sometimes sneak in and check the girls' bg when they are sleeping. Please tell me I'm not the only one?!?!
Lately my daughter, Emma has been acting different. I can't quite put my finger on it. A little lethargic, she moves slowly, she's lost the skip in her step ---- she's got no bounce. Her face always looks just a little sad and her eyes have dark circles around them. For about a week she complained of a tummy ache without any vomiting or diarrhea but she does seem a little green. Halloween night she was just ho-hum and kind of tagged along towards the back and was the 1st one ready to call it a night. Today she got home from her Y-Princess camp out with her daddy and again was just ho-hum. Jim said she was pretty lethargic and lackadaisical the entire trip which just broke my heart. I know how much they were both looking forward to this trip. Her school work is suffering and I feel like I am always 'on' her.
Today it hit me!
Holy CRAP. She has diabetes. This is it. I just know it. Tummy ache, change in demeanor, tired, lethargic.
She has Ducking Fiabetes!!!
Longest 5 seconds ever . . .
Ok, she doesn't have diabetes.
Now I'm still left wondering what is wrong with my sweet little thing. :(
Keep calm and keep plugging along . . .
