New Job, New Beginnings...
It's almost the weekend, cant believe it. No, I'm not complaining, I'll take that anytime. Well as you may have seen in the title of my post today. New Job, New Beginnings. Yes I have found a new job finally after searching a few moths. Thank you Baby Jesus! As you all know with a new job comes new beginnings, new co-workers and new rules. With that said what do you do about telling your new crew about your Type 1 Diabetes, your glucagon, your stash of glucose tablets and your emergency phone numbers? Well I will say I have been lucky to say that I am working for a practice that knows me from previously working for them and have a few coworkers that follow me on my journey via social media and know my deal with dealing with Type 1 Diabetes. That didn't stop me there I had to do a refresher course with the ones who already know I am diabetic and gave info to the ones who just found out as I was hired on. I had no problem letting my coworkers know about my Diabetes. I made sure they knew that I carry an insulin pump and that I have a glucose meter on hand to check my glucose. My insulin pump was the Hot Topic of the conversation. How does it work? How is the pump connected to your body? Does it hurt? How many times do you check your blood sugar? My favorite, Do we have to keep all sweets away from you?
I made sure to explain to every one please don't keep sweets away from me and please don't judge me for eating them too. I am okay to eat all foods and all sweets as long as I Bolus for each carb I consume. Carb counting??? That was another topic to explain. I love it though, I love to provide knowledge of everyday living with Type 1 Diabetes. I am my own show and tell. =)
