Out to Eat

We went out to run an errand.  While we were out, we came across a place to eat breakfast and thought it'd be a great idea to grab a bite.  We were about to order when we realized we left the insulin at home.  Being that we weren't so close to home, we had to skip breakfast.  It broke my heart.  Now we never leave home without the insulin & meter, even if it is just a short trip.


  1. This happened to us before. We were 1 1/2 hrs from home and my daughter realized that she forgot her bag. No meter, no insulin. We went to Walgreens, bought a meter and strips Nd then went to McDonalds for lunch. She chose to get a grilled chicken breast and a carbs. You can't throw in the towel at these things because it will drive you crazy. Breakfast has many no carb options...eggs, bacon, sausage, cheese, omelet. We also allow 10 grams for free if we are in that situation.

  2. Thanks for the comment. We have learned that now, but before we knew about the carb counting thing he just took a set amount of units before each meal (which in my opinion, is no way to get good control). Thanks for joining my blog!! =)
