I'm So Over The Latest Round of The Blood Sugar Numbers Game

Somethings brewing in Tunetown! And by Tunetown of course I mean me, and by me I mean this extraordinarily machine (shout out to Fiona Apple) known as my body.
I've been battling elevated blood sugars since Friday, and while I appreciate my body giving me "a heads up" regarding any infection, I'm over both the elevated numbers and elevated insulin intake.
I'm tired of checking my blood sugar every hour to see if my numbers have gone down, and I'm tired of being annoyed when they haven't.
And when I finally get them down, they go down too far- which is something else I'm not real fond of .
I've upped my basal rates twice and it looks like I will be then upping again. Hopefully, 3rd time will indeed be the charm and everything will level out.

I (we) work so hard to maintain good health and good numbers, but at this point- I think it might actually be easier to balance the federal budget.

OK, bitch fit DONE. I will work through this! I will test, and test again until I get the numbers all nice and even like a perfectly baked brick oven pizza. Of course I reference carbs- I've had to steer clear of them for days!

Like you and everyone else who deals with diabetes, I have no choice. This is life after all, and part of life with diabetes is handling ALL the numbers, both the good and the bad.

But once this numbers game is over, I'M HAVING A SLICE OF PIZZA!!!!!

I hear you about highs and all the dcrap we deal with.
We have no choice but together we get through it all.

I hear you!! Once we get the numbers low, they keep falling until we need juice. And if we need to raise them up a bit, they just go up-up-up until we're in the stratosphere! Around and around and around it goes.

Pizza sounds like an excellent plan. :)

I'm sorry to hear about your frustrations ... I hope whatever you are fighting loses very soon so that your numbers go back to normal. And you can enjoy that pizza :)

Doesn't it just suck?? That's part of what people don't understand - how many factors can affect our blood sugar and how long those effects can last. Stay tough and once you've kicked them to the curb, enjoy that pizza!!

I wonder if there's something in the air. The exact same thing has been happening to me since Friday!

Here's to better numbers and PIZZA :-)

Major suckage yo. I hope that it is pretty much better by now.
