Dear Diabetes - I GOT YOUR MESSAGE!

Dear Diabetes:


And… well, It’s all your fault. Seriously my stomach is growling and I have a headache.

Yours truly only had coffee for breakfast this morning thanks to waking up with a blood sugar of 290, caused by middle of the night low at 3 a.m. of 50.

OK- I realize that I’m responsible just as much as much as you are regarding the low BG, we ARE a team after all.

And I TOTALLY understand that you were nudging me with the 3am low to:

A. Wake me up and treat the 3 a.m. low

B. Make me realize that I need to take good look at early a.m basal rates and consider an adjustment.

C. You reminded me yet again, that like most "well oiled machines," you need tweaking every once in a while.

Done and done my friend! My iphone alarm is currently set for 12 a.m. and 3 a.m. basal rate blood sugar tests.

But next time D, time how about just putting the volume to 10, instead of turning it all the way up to 11.

Yes, I referenced (though be it poorly) Spinal Tap- I know how much you love that movie!

LOOK, I totally appreciate and am forever grateful that you woke me up for the low. THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU! From the bottom of my imperfect pancreas for the cold sweat and pounding heart low blood sugar alarm.

Thank you for allowing me to wake up and have the presence of mind to treat it, even if I over treated it this time.

It’s just, well… it made working this morning a bit of a drag – from the second my iphone alarm clock rang at 6:30 am. It took a ridiculous amount of time to peel myself out from under the covers and get ready for work.

And YES, paperwork was accomplished and my calendar IS coming finally coming together- but it took you (and me) a good bit to feel like the caffeine was ACTUALLY kicking in.

Current #Bgnow is 144, which means lunch is a go. Which is good thing- because like I said- I’M STARVING.

Let’s continue to work on our “Communication Skills D"

Like it or not, we are team and we have to work as one, 24X7, 365 days a year.

I will even go with Mediterranean Salad for lunch- because I know that particular salad works well regarding keeping the blood sugar study.

Talk to you in a few hours, when it’s time to check our post lunch blood sugar numbers!

Peace ~

Kelly K
