I pride myself on testing frequently and being able to tell when I’m running high or low. Sometimes, however, I’m still surprised by highs. I skipped breakfast today and changed my site. I didn’t test this morning though, like I normally do ’cause I felt like I was fine. However, before lunch I pulled out my meter and was shocked to see 262. My lunch was pretty low in carbs, so I bolused and I’m sure I’ll be fine shortly…but it’s still annoying. I do feel guilt when I’m high. Why did I skip this morning? Really I think it’s that I had bad dreams and have felt really stressed all morning…so I’m blaming it on that!
I was so excited this morning that both my battery and insulin were showing full on my meter too!
I’m giving up diet sodas, after having SEVERAL a day for as long as I can remember, so I wonder if that’s going to have an effect on my readings. Certainly it’s affecting me otherwise – I’m grouchy. I am drinking water like it’s going out of style though and have probably already saved a few bucks.
I sometimes wonder if life will ever feel like I don’t need to change things I do and how I handle things. It’s tiring sometimes that there’s seemingly so much “to fix.”
