So when your prepping, packing, pitching and hitching to move from one place to another, it has a major effect on your diabetes. Meaning it’s cardiovascular and stressful all at the same time, so anything can happen.
So far, I’ve noticed that my numbers tending to stay in range during the day -eerily in range - Like do I still have diabetes range?? And my appetite is almost none existent during the day, but by dinner time, I’m starving!
Moving has also continually reminds me of how much diabetes supplies is a part of my life. I’ve always known that of course - Hell, I’ve have type 1 diabetes for 30 plus years, so how could I not?
Because In my quest to sort; organize, box, and pitch my shit, I’ve come across a boatload of supplies. Including at least 6 meters that no longer work, boxes of lances & dozens of loose unused lancets in both my desk and nightstand drawers. Numerous infusion sets and reservoirs, 3 boxes of needles (that I haven’t used in years, all opened,) one 1/2 finished container of expired ketone strips and a multitude rogue used test strips in the darkest corner of closets and old handbags.
So......yeah, it’s a good reminder and an interesting visual of this diabetes life and all it's many nuances and stages -And how freaking high maintenance I am!
