I wrote a post a few weeks ago, Humor Me. My Supervisor held me hostage until my low (58) came up. I was told I needed to make an appointment with the Endo to see what was wrong with me. I tried explaining there wasn’t anything wrong with me, but they didn’t want to hear it. I scheduled my appointment for 6-11-09. This is how my appointment went:
Wes: “Cherise, what are you doing here so soon?”
Me: “Well, I had a bg of 58! My boss/supervisor said I needed to come see you because something isn’t right.”
Wes: “How many times has this happened?”
Me: “Once. I was very active at work during Memorial Day weekend. I dropped. They made me come see you.”
Wes:” OK, that’s odd. They must not be a diabetic? ”
Me: “Not diabetic (I started laughing). Just worried about me.”
Wes: “What do they want me to do?”
He asked to see my PDM. I gave it to him.
Wes: “Cherise, your numbers are awesome. The lowest you’ve been was 70, not bad at all.”
I asked Wes to Humor Me, he decided to send this letter to my boss/supervisor:
I am blessed to have co-workers who care about my well being. I understand why they worry. Honestly, it can be a little overwhelming at times. I try to go with the flow sometime but it doesn’t follow me. Isn’t that what life with diabetes is about?
Btw, My insurance doesn’t require me to pay a copay to see the Endo. If I had to pay I wouldn’t have went.
