I was at an indoor playground with my son (5) and a couple of his friends. Whenever he plays there, I have all I can do to keep his bg up. So Im checking his bg and his friend asks what we are doing. My son replies "I have diabetes. If my mom doesnt check my blood sugar, I'll die." Oh geeze! I have never said anything like that to him before. On the one hand I do think he needs to understand that D is not something to be treated lightly but I also dont want him to think he's gonna die if I dont check him once. How do I explain that to him? After I got his reading, his friend says "Is he gonna die?". Oy!
