I turned back all my clocks this weekend including my dvd player, my alarm,my stereo and my watch. I even struggled with the clock in my new car, since I am too stubborn to read the manual. I thought I had all my ducks in a row, until I tested this morning at my bedside.
Early in the morning, I awake with sleepy eyes before my alarm sounded. Still dark, I rolled over and grabbed my test kit. I tested, and was feeling very pleased with my number of 99, until I focused on the number indicating the time. A wave of panic overtook me as I feared I had overslept, and this was obviously the reason I had heard no alarm.
I sprint to the shower, and literally beat my quickest time of 10 minutes. I dress, brush my teeth, put on my contacts and finally brush my soaking wet hair. Quickly, I grab my makeup (to be applied on the way to work) and my dog to let her outside. As I enter the den, my contacts focus my eyes on the DVD player. I was not late. I was early, and was just dressed in time to hear my alarm go off upstairs.
Silly, silly me. I had not even thought about changing the times on my meters. Honestly, I didn't realize I was paying any attention to the number corresponding to the time. Just another way diabetes rears it's ugly head. I wonder if anyone else has had this happen.
