2/16 – Yay Blood Sugar!

Morning Blood Sugar This morning I woke up, and my blood sugar was 151, which is very unusual. Yesterday it was 214. I know I’ve told you guys this before, but my blood sugar is always very high in the morning, so I’m not sure what happened. I did take some Tylenol pm last night …

2/15 – Bad sleep, Keto fried rice, pepperoni and a walk

Nyquil When I tell you that I love NyQuil, I mean it. If I wasn’t married, I might ask it to marry me, or at least go steady. It calms me, gives me the only restful sleep that I feel like I ever get. But, I got up this morning and checked my blood sugar, …

2/14 – Chaffles and Walking

I’m going to have to force myself to write these every day again. I’m getting off track; between the pandemic and my husband’s birthday, I’ve been awful all week. You know you’re married, and there is a pandemic when you spend Valentine’s Day doing laundry and watching TV. It was kind of the best Valentine’s …

I just took a NyQuil cap of Mucinex. I really hope that you can’t overdose on Mucinex. I didn’t feel very good when I woke up this morning; I had a bit of a sore throat, headache, and stuffed up. Every time I feel this way, I feel like I might be dying. Yesterday, I …

I’m becoming addicted to Tik Tok. It’s so much fun, but I have so much I have to figure out. My videos are, meh, I need to figure out the sound because, for some reason, I’m not getting the opportunity to lower the volume of the music so you can hear me more. I have …

I’m feeling much better today. First, I slept like a baby. When I say sleep like a baby, I mean, I slept, woke up multiple times and then went back to bed again. I felt rested when I woke up, though, which is unusual for me. Usually, I’m dragging like crazy. This week I get …

Mimosas and regret

I’ve pretty much been pretending that I don’t have diabetes the past month and not paying attention to my body and taking care of myself, and that is going to change this month. This will be the month that I take my health back, barring any insurrections or civil wars. It may all be off …

I had a panic attack the other day when I checked my blood sugar, and it was 330. I really don’t want to tell you all this; it’s embarrassing, and let’s be honest, this is a blog about being diabetic, so I need to be completely honest with you about what is going on in …

I know better, and I must do better.

I’m so mad at myself. I thought I would take the day and celebrate the inauguration; my husband asked if I wanted anything from this donut place called ‘Winchells,’ I said yes. I got a large apple fritter and a croissant with bacon, egg, and cheese. I checked my blood sugar in the middle of …

This haiku about carbs is perfect. I have a friend coming over tonight with a pasta dinner. I said yes to this because I figured I would just not eat most of the day and then try to not eat too much. Too much food I fasted most of the day yesterday and then ate …
