1: Trust Yourself.
You are the only one who truly knows how your body works. Don't second guess yourself. Use a test taking strategy: your first assumption was probably right.
2: Always Be Prepared For The Worst.
Unless you have special powers and can see into the future, most likely you have no idea what's going to happen in the near future. So, in order to be prepared for anything always carry juice/tabs (if you need to get crafty you can always improvise with syrup, soda, sugar packets, frosting, or anything else you can think of!) an extra site for pupmers, and a good bottle of insulin. That way you can handle any impending problem with fierceness.
3: Learn To Improvise.
If you are at school and you run out of insulin in your pump and you don't have an extra plunger in which to refuel with, what do you do? ( here is a list of things that you do have, Insulin, shots, meter, strips, pricker, extra site, and your brain.) I have an answer locked up in my head, but i am leaving it up to you to figure out a super creative solution to this dilemma! On your mark! Get set! Go Improve a solution t this mess!
4: Educate The People Around You.
Friends, Family, Co-Workers, and Teachers are all a huge part of your life. The more that they know about your diabetes, the better. That way if anything should happen, they could be of some assistance. And besides if you tell them about it first, that means less annoying questions in the long run.
5: Don't Let Diabetes Get In The Way Of You Living Your Life.
Diabetes should NOT affect the decisions you make in life. If you want to go out for that sport, by all means do it! Don't sit back and think, i don't know if i should. Diabetes is now apart of you, and you must embrace it! Don't let it hold you back! Never Ever!
