My son, age 11, has been a bit sensitive about people "knowing" about his diagnosis. He is of the temperament that doesn't like attention drawn to himself and just wants to be like everyone else. I am sensitive to that and know that in part, that's just age-related. (Perhaps too, a bit genetic. FIL would tell us a week after he'd had a major heart procedure or surgery for prostate cancer - didn't want us to worry ) But at home....he's very sensitive too about wording. He'd rather I not say "please test your blood sugar (or glucose)". He likes us to say, "take a reading" or "give me a number". Arg. So, I'm wondering, when you ask your child for a BG reading, what words do you use? In public? At home?
