Animas sick day protocol - good device for remembering to check every 4 hours, up insulin if necessary, 10 carbs per hour to stay hydrated if appetite is poor (for our toddler's weight), and keep checking for ketones.
Self-Compassion - When I wake up in pain and try to get out the door despite it, I am at best trying to ignore my pain, and at worst, condemning it with unkind words, “this stupid body! I hate this pain, myself, my life!” Mindfulness is about turning toward our feelings of discomfort, and moving through them. When we’re drenched in pain, we don’t want to accept it! We want to fight it & fix it. But there is power in letting ourselves feel.
