Well, I warned you it could come up a lot. I’m having one of those days 😦 My sugar has been on a roller coaster since I went back to shots and it sucks a big one. People who don’t have to deal with it have no clue how much a fluctuating blood sugar can throw you off – physically and emotionally. My goal is to keep my glucose levels under control and consistently have blood sugars in the normal range (80-120) but that my friends, seems dang near impossible. I am journaling all of my sugars as well as my insulin doses and e-mailing my doc every few days so we can make adjustments as needed. It’s exhausting – and disheartening to have those numbers staring me in the face. On top of it all, the bruising on my belly (where I inject) is getting so bad I’m running out of places to inject. Can someone tell me why I spend 4 days a week at the gym to maintain a body I don’t want to show anyone because these bruises are repulsive? Seems like kind of a waste of time.
There, now that I’ve wrote it down and got it out of my system, it’s time to stop wallowing. I have my life and I woke up to gorgeous sunshine today! I’m going to try to be thankful today instead of depressed. Wish me luck! XO
