[IP] re:More Flossing For Diabetics....Pleeeease!

Hope I didn't disturb you from flossing. Perhaps you were just venting
and not looking for comments. BUT.............
Your dentist obviously has NO  clue as to what life with DM entails.
Why not bring her a list of ALL of the things you have to be aware of,
think about, or do that non DM'ers don't.  Listing things like weighing
food, paying attention to a small scratch on your foot, extra doctor
appts, ordering supplies, meds, etc.
The list could be quite long...............actually SHOULD be very very
long and detailed. LOL. Ask her how many times a day she would floss if
she had to deal with all of these things as well as the things everyone
has to do. Would love to know her response.
Excuse me please, I need to go floss.

My dentist tells me today that all D. pts should floss
at least twice as often as nonD pts.  I laughed out
loud.  Told her that extra flossing ranks very low on
my priority list of things to do for the day D.
related and otherwise. She said perhaps I could
re-priortize some things. I barely have time to even
change a site when the siren starts blaring on my pump
some mornings.  Maybe I was just in an overwhelmed
sort of mood, but it was both amusing and infuriating.
It's been so long since I've had any really good
flossing advice, LOL!!!  Just had to share this unique
experience. Give us a break...pleeeease!

Jill-(going off to extra-floss now;o) NOT!!
