We talked about having someone to be your surrogate to relieve stress, we also need to include in that list of jobs as we age, someone to help us drive to our doctor's appointments. Start looking now at home town taxi services. Some have a discount for reoccuring medical trips. Some cities have transportation for the handicapped (I am no way saying your diabetes handicaps you) that might include you on thier trips. Bus lines are cheaper also. If a family member is going into town to work maybe they can drop you off and you can take an alternative route home.
See if your city has a diabetes help group, I am sure they know what your town has to offer.
If you live close enough map out a walking or bicycle trip. Be sure to have something to drink, glucose tablets and a glucometer with you. Now might be a time to invest in a sports lap belt. Many companies give these away as advertising items. If not available at home, check out the internet.
Planning is the key. Leave no stone unturned. It just takes that one important moment for you to stress and blow your hard earned sugar control out of the water.
See you soon Geri
