- Each week, we will now feature a selection from our Humorous Tidbits section. This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
I was diagnosed a couple months ago. The other day, I badly miscalculated the insulin for my dinner carbs, and an hour later found that I had dropped pretty low. So I grabbed some carbs, and then, because I'd never been quite that low before and was alone with the kids, I called my ten year old over to give him the standard mommy-is-low speech: ".. so if I start acting funny or fall to the floor --" "I know, I know," he interrupted. "Dump a glass of water on your head and give you a juice box." I started laughing and told him dumping the water was probably not necessary. "I know," he said, "but I bet I could get away with it."
