The diabetes police.
DUN DUN DUNNNN.
Today I packed my lunch at 6:00am. I'll be the first to admit it was not the most nutritious lunch.. but come on! It was 6 in the morning! My lunch consisted of anything I could quickly throw into my lunch box.. it was a Ritz crackerfuls, a chewy bar and some baked ruffles potato chips.
So here I am sitting next to my clinical instructor (who is a NURSE) and I feel her staring at me. I am not sure how I knew she was going to say something... I just KNEW she was.
I pulled out the serving of chips and sure enough she says..
"You can't eat that."
A million things ran through my head to say, but I ended up saying "Why not?"
She didn't answer my question. lol.
It was so weird. Most of my friends and classmates ASK me about my diabetes, I don't often run into people who think they know more than I do about my diabetes care.
I was slightly caught off guard.
I am happy with how I responded and I think she sort of understood why.
Gotta love the diabetes police...
