Spending some time chatting with friends, hanging out with my son, and just reflecting on all the good stuff for a while really made me realize that things are going to be okay. I will lose this weight and get my A1C where I want it. I was in a very optimistic mood.
I put in a new CGMS sensor, my BG was 137 at bedtime, and got to bed early enough so that I could read a little before completely crashing out.
I should tell you that I have been reading this particular book for probably a year! I know that sounds funny but I will get a page in every night before I pass out. The book is really not that great but when you have read the other 8 books in the series, you just HAVE to read the very last one right? Anyhow, I got through 2 chapters last night and it seems to finally be getting better so we shall see.
Back to the subject, I was in a chipper mood.
And now is when I have to blame diabetes for the change in my attitude.
At 1AM my CGM woke me up with a low warning. After verifying it with my meter I had some orange glucose tabs to bring it back up. I headed back to sleep and in about 20 minutes had another alarm. Again I checked and I was 58! More tabs. Another. And Another! I know I consumed 16 tabs last night and woke with a BG of 112.
I hardly slept. I was up at least twice an hour trying my best to tame the low. My head is in a major fog this morning.
Let’s hope I find some energy to make it through the day.
I am already planning a nap when I get home.
Today I am going to try my best to find that positive outlook and keep it going. Won't you join me?
