...this one is a hard one...how do you take a picture of the deepest desire of your heart? how do you take a picture of the best thing you could ever give your child? how do you take a picture of something that doesn't exist?
Then I got to thinking, and it came to me....
...if there was a CURE for T1, then the carb counts on the nutrition labels would loose their immense power!
I wouldn't have to know that there are 16g carbs in 8oz of tomato soup; 9g carbs in 60g by weight of spaghetti sauce; 17g carbs in 1 chocolate chip granola bar; 15g carbs in sqeeze applesauce to bring up a low BG in the 60s or 70s; 26g carbs for 53g by weight of Cheetos. (Oh, and for the record, I only had to check on the weight of the Cheetos bag, thank you very much!)
We wouldn't have to add up carb counts to dose insulin whenever Bean eats because if there was a CURE, her pancreas would go back to doing it's job!
No more finger pricks, no more pod changes, no more CGM sensors, no more thinking about IOB at bedtime, no more 2am alarms!!!
Yeah, I'd totally be OK with going back to not caring about carb counts. Totally OK with that.
