Eliza has been snacking on the bus.
Eliza is a stealthy bus snacker.
On no less than four occasions Eliza has had a mystery high blood sugar about an hour and after getting off the bus.
Eliza usually checks her blood sugar at 4:30 before dinner and we get a number in the 200’s. Next comes my inquiry immediately followed by her revelation that some type of carby snack, pretzel, cracker, puff had been consumed on the bus. She paints a picture of kids holding her down and force feeding her snacks. She swears she refuses and yet they somehow make it into her mouth. I ask what she did with the free snack I gave her to eat on the bus if she got hungry. She says she ate in on the bus ride TO school.
Oh Sweet Eliza.
I am frustrated….
She is young and hungry.
She wants to feel normal.
It sucks having Diabetes.
Stealthy bus snacking is Eliza’s mini D rebellion. I get that. I REALLY DO.
Now if they can just hurry up and make that artificial pancreas a reality that would be FANTASTIC.
