This weekend I'm supposed to go on a camping trip and I think it's safe to say that I'm absolutely freaked out by the idea of it. Each time I've gone away since my diagnosis I've known exactly what type of food I'd be eating and at what time - a hotel or friend's house really helps with this. However, when you're out in the woods planning meals can be difficult and since I do not start my pump until July 5th, I'm stuck with lantus and novlog. Adding to my fears is the fact that I'm supposed to support Courtney in the Tinman Triathlon this weekend as well. Normally I'd eat a hearty breakfast for a day of running around cheering for someone on a triathlon course but I'm not sure the campfire is going to provide much more than a muffin. Because of all the increased activity I'm real worried that I'll be low and won't have a controlled environment to get back to healthy bs levels.
I'll be carrying a supply of clif bars, glucose tabs and apples; hopefully that does the trick. I'll also be using my trusty Frio wallet to keep my insulin cool. Does anyone have any suggestions to reduce my fears of going low?
