Many of us work hard to keep our diabetes from interrupting the lives of those around us. We monitor, we plan, we cook, we exercise…we do a lot of things for ourselves. That is great and as it should be.
However; who will save your life if it needs saving? Who are those people close to you who know what to do if you are in trouble and cannot do for yourself what needs to be done? I am speaking of recognizing if you are going low or knowing when to get you to an ER because you are too high.
Did you say "No one"? I surely hope not.
We make plans for so many things in our lives, but this is too often overlooked. We have to make sure that our loved ones know how to help us when we are in need. May that day never have to be experienced, but we must be prepared. It is not a joke and we need to impress on them that unless they wish to live life without you, they need to take it seriously and refresh their steps often with you.
Who will save your life?
