Conversation with husband, held while he’s heating up a beautiful quesadilla on the stove, loaded with carbohydrates and flavor, and after I’ve checked my blood sugar and it’s 135…
Me: This whole carb thing sucks.
Him: You’re just realizing this now?
Me: No. But sometimes it just really sucks.
Him: Sorry, babe.
Me: I know. Can you leave that pan out when you’re done? I have to make scrambled eggs for dinner. Did you know one giant olive has one carbohydrate?
Him: Olives have carbohydrates?
Me: I know. Doesn’t seem fair, does it?
Life in the dinner of a diabetic on serious carb count.
As always, more to come…
