Being sick and on your period is the worst because you have all the cravings but can’t taste anything.

Diabetes has forced me to look at a plate of food and to see numbers (29, 64, 15) instead of milk and pasta and an apple and carb ratios (1:5) and insulin units (21.6) plus current blood sugar (241) and correction factors (1 for every 30 over 140 = 3.36) and at some point it was just a plate of dinner.
