My family lives with my mom, and my husband and mom are frequently frustrated that we can no longer just sit down at the table and begin eating immediately when the food is ready, as we did before diagnosis. There is a lot of huffing and puffing and heavy sighing whenever we have to wait while carbs and insulin doses are being calculated, food is being measured out to be served in the proper proportions, or when waiting for a low bg to come back into range so we can then give insulin and eat. I have held my peace in the past, not wanting dd to feel responsible for mealtime tensions among the adults. I keep forgetting to discuss it with them at other times. So, tonight, dd was occupied in another room, when my mom suggests to me that we should set the timer for a certain amount of time before the food is expected to be ready so that this time we can be ready to sit down and eat as soon as the food is ready. I mumbled ok, and then she asked for my suggestion. I told her my suggestion was that we have D, now, and those days are over. She walked out in a huff. *Sigh*. We dose before eating, and dd needs to look at the ready food at mealtime to know how much of it she wants to eat. Also, if she is low, it sometimes takes more than 1 treatment to bring her back into range, and I don't know how we could predict that in order to know how far in advance to set a timer. Thoughts? Suggestions? HELP!!!!!!!!
