Morning all, the Duke has taken my spot in the bed, and I’m well into a good day. I was thrilled to have a blood sugar of 88 this morning. Usually my fasting blood sugar is over 300.
Wait, what? Yep, over 300. Think broke diet, combined with depression. We are well on our way to having a sucky day at that point. No miracle drug can fix that. When a person can’t afford the insulin, and a person can’t afford real food…
A few weeks ago, I noticed that I’m not as hungry as normal. Yes, I have a few tests coming from the Dr’s office to triple check what’s going on for that. However, the upswing is that finally, finally, my diabetes is getting closer to the control ideal over the past several days.
I’m not going to look a gift horse in the mouth with that. I have been eating a little different as well. I eat fruit when I have a craving for sweet. It’s expensive as hell, but instead of cheaper foods that will knock my sugars into the next millenium, I’m eating something a little healthier.
I will update you on the results of the tests coming up. I am starting the prep on Wednesday, and will be hiding in the little girls room with the laptop, a gallon of some nastiness, and plenty of water and juice. I’d use the tablet, but that died the final death again. I am giving up on it.
Meanwhile, I’m accepting the small gifts from God as they arrive. I feel human again. The lower blood sugars are a blessing.
Hugs for now, take care. -L
