"I'll be playing with friends and they will ask, "are you high? I think you need a glucose tab." just because I was being crazy on purpose. I wish people knew the difference between high and low and type 1 and type 2 diabetes." Best piece of advice from Abbie's parents: "Everyday is a new day." Don't beat yourself up over the bad days. Sometimes we beat ourselves up when our kids have highs and lows but really there are just things that are out of our control: hormones, exercise, food digestion things.
