You will notice there will be no blogs tomorrow on and Friday. I am taking a sort ill planned road trip to Iowa and most likely will not have time to write. It did make think of a good blog idea though and that is road tripping as a diabetic.
The trip to Iowa will most likely take 6 hours, in my world that is a long long long time to sit in a car. So there is no doubt I will pull off along the way to get a good stretch in. I also have to think of maintaining my diabetes. I will have to have some sort of sugar in the car in case I go low. I will have to pull off to test and most likely eat some sort of fast food.
I have taken many road trips in my life but I never really worried about how it affected diabetes. So this will be a learning experience for me. Which is what I am hoping for, if you have read this blog for a while you know that this has been a rough year for me. I want to take the time driving to reflect on my life so far. To think about where I have been and where I am going.
I am hoping for an adventure. I am hoping for a few good stories. I want to do this to learn about myself. I have never really done anything like this before. I am nervous and excited at the prospect and in the end I think it will be worth it.
I am looking forward to learning how to control while living in a car for 12 hours obviously the hotel part will be easy but the drive will be long. I think I will be okay. I am becoming more confident with this disease and feel like I am ready for this. I am sorry to leave you hanging for a few days but I will be back and better than before I left, at least I hope.
