Withholding Information

I talk quite openly about my type 1 diabetes on my other blog, but here at Blade Bunnies it rarely gets mentioned. Maybe that is because I haven't mentioned it to my coaches the rinks either.

I had a near emergency last week at Home Rink. I had to leave in the middle of the lesson to test and treat a severe low blood sugar which forced me to tell Coach M (who teaches my Saturday Adult Group lesson) about my diabetes. 

I carry emergency diabetes supplies in my skate bag, but if no one knows they're in there, it's not going to do much good. This week I will make a point of telling Private Coach and Coach Mel at The Other Rink about my diabetes. Because I know that one piece of information could someday save my life.
