What you don't know - doesn't matter?

Okay, how many diabetics believe that if you don't check your sugar than it's off the record; therefore, who will ever know? I am so like this, it seems that if I know I am definitely high than I am less likely to check to make it a fact because I don't want it to be a fact. We all know that our nurses and endos love to go through our numbers and make plans for us, but what we don't track doesn't count.

What a horrible message I am putting out and I know that it is important to check your sugar and I do check regularly about 4-7 times a day; however, sometimes you just rather not know how much you overindulged. After all you're feeling guilt eating the piece of cake just for the caloric index, let alone for what it did to your blood sugars!

Basically I believe that I am not the only one who feels like if we don't check now it doesn't count. We can just give ourselves a couple shots of insulin and maybe one more for good luck and check in an hour when we feel it will be more appropriate!

It's just a diabetics mentality right?
