This thread may not make me any friends, but I am dismayed by what I think is a new trend on CWD to frame every aspect of D management in hysterical language. Not every low, even a serious low, is a "life or death" moment. Not every carb count needs to be exact lest it result in a "life threatening" high or low. We as a community set a tone through our language, and lately it seems that we're collectively and simultaniously raising the volume on the "code red" stuff and lowering the "code red" bar to include nearly every mundane event. Yes, living with D is stressful, but unless it's our goal to prove to the outside world that, "yes, it really is that bad!" then, personally, I think we're doing ourselves a disservice. Like I said, this probably won't be all that popular, but I think it often enough to feel compelled to say it "out loud".
