I don't talk about D unless someone asks, but if Em is invited to stay at someones home I need to tell the parent what to do. Last night Em was supposed to spend the night at a friends that she had not stayed at before. But she has had two lows the last week (first ones since she started levemere at the beginning of summer) at night. So the mom (who I do not know well) wanted to know all about what to do etc because she knew nothing about TYpe 1 and has no medical background etc. So I started the most basic of explanations, I was barely into it and I could see I already had lost her attention, and another mother entered and started to talk to her about their yoga!. That was the end of the conversation with me. She then quickly turned back to me and said "It's OK I know what to do now." And continued talking about yoga. I had barely explained a thing to her. I didn't know what to do. I could have cut back Ems insulin and asked Em to eat more and have her run high all night and feel lousy or ask her not to stay. I told Em in private and she opted to come home because she hates being high. But I am getting so discouraged having to explain D to others. What do you do? I feel like just handing them a piece of paper and asking them to read it.
