This was part of my daughter’s school work* last week:
What about the thing that I am certain will happen today?
I will have a rough blood sugar roller coaster. – nope.
That’s not a certainty. Today’s been pretty mellow, to be honest.
The temperature will be exactly 72 degrees and sunny today – nope.
I live in New England. There isn’t a temperature certainty to be found any day of the year.
I won’t make any of my own insulin today. – yes!
That’s a certainty. I won’t make a drop of insulin (my c-peptide levels are undetectable). But it’ll be okay. I feel pretty certain about that. It’s going to be okay.
(* The crossed out “duh” is my favorite.)
