Spotting a D-parent in the wild is easy if you know what to look for. Common indicators on stubborn BG days include, but are not limited to:
Needs haircut/The ignoring of personal grooming
Vacant stare from too much carb counting
Dark circles under the eyes
Overall exhausted appearance from lack of sleep
Be advised that on days blood glucose values are in range, parent may appear normal. On those days you can approach* the parent as you would any other. However, if the subject has one or more of these indicators giving them a hug is currently the best known form of treatment.
*Please use your good judgement when engaging a D-Parent on days like the one shown here. There is no way to know how they may react. Arden's Day is not liable for any injuries that you may incur while attempting to have a conversation with a D-Parent in distress.
