This morning, when little brother came in to
My instructor starts in with the, "today's ride is...." and then she says the words I absolutely D R E A D "all hill, we're going to ride a 40 minute hill". I HATE hill rides. Cranking up the dial is my least favorite kind of ride. About 15 minutes into the class I could tell that needed to turn down my insulin some more. I decreased my basal to 0% for the next hour. 15 more minutes and after a song of sprints, I wanted to test my sugar. I got off my bike and tested. Usually when I do this I'm at 130 and I just get right back on and ride. No such luck this time... 68. I walked back to my bike, wiped it down, apologized to the instructor and left. That is so embarrassing! But what else could I have done? I guess I had too much insulin on board and no matter if I drank my juice (which was not in my bag, but luckily I had some cash and could pay $2 for a Vitamin Water) I still could not have gone on cycling. SO FRUSTRATING!
Does diabetes ever embarrass you?
