Sometimes you just can't win

I give up! The D has defeated me, and I am just going to give in and let it do what it wants for a while. 

Since I got injured, I've been home from work and my schedule has been unusual. I haven't gotten much exercise and I've been sleeping in and skipping meals, which I don't normally do. Consequently my blood sugars have bounced from high to low and back again without ever balancing out. 

Today I went back to work, and also back to the rink. Throughout the day my blood sugars were beautiful! Steady between 116-130. 

Then I went to the rink, I tested before my lesson and was 116, the sensor showed an up arrow, and I felt fine, so I didn't bother with a snack. Sometime during my lesson, I got really sweaty, like drenched, but I figured it was because I was working so hard. I did not feel low, or high for that matter. 

I didn't test after skating (I probably should have.) By the time I got home and prepared to eat dinner the sensor was showing 197 and double up arrows. I tested 333 AHHH WTF? 

Now that I think about it, I am pretty sure I went low skating, and that lovely liver of mine dumped glucose (thank you liver, for doing your job oh so well.) But, now I am right back where I started, bouncing from high to low with no end in sight. 

So, I give up. Dear D, please let me know when I can take over again. BTW I see Dr. Lee at the end of this month, so we need to get out act together.

  1. I hate that you are feeling so beaten down by The Stupid Big D. :( It sure isn't easy, is it. I wish I had a magic answer, but of course, there isn't one. I can send a big hug though!
