The High Blood Sugar Abyss.
All week my blood sugars have been erratic. I check, I bolus, I change my infusion sets, HIGH Blood sugar! What the heck? I am doing all the things I always do. (Ok, maybe I am slipping a bit.)
After all the hard work I have been putting into having such great numbers I should not be having high blood sugar.
It could be because I have been working A LOT and getting less sleep. I mean working like going to work 9-5pm then coming home and doing a bunch of side projects that have been taking up all of my free time. This has been going on for the past couple of weeks. Maybe my body just is telling me to slow down? Or because of my work schedule I would need different basals? Or could it be that my body is just changing? UGH! Or maybe it is because I have been tired more often I forget to bolus and think I did? Probably, I am like a walking zombie lately.
Other things I have noticed are that I think I have acid reflux or something and of course I don't go to the doctor to get it checked out. (all of my cyber moms have been telling me to go, HI CYBER MOMS) My stomach has been bothering me a lot lately. Yes, I know I should go. It is just that I have been so busy lately that everything just feels like I have put it on the back burner and will get to it eventually.
Yes, I guess I have been getting careless with my health, I can feel my high blood sugar symptoms coming on more often and it is dragging me down and making me feel like crap.
::SLAP:: Get yourself together girl! Before you go into that downward spiral into the high blood sugar abyss. Trust me I don't want to go there, I have been there. It is dark and lonely and it really stinks! I want to feel like my old self.
Alright, fine I am going to call the doctor! Thanks for listening.
