Would I like to send Diabetes to the dungeon for a million years, you mean?
Why yes. I would.
Yes. The Earl of Lemongrab is how I'm feeling right now. Rigid and mean. And crazy.
I've been having a sucky time with this condition lately. It is Totally Unacceptable. I need to get an official A1C done, but I have the home test that is now available again. Let's just say, I'm not any closer to my goal of 7%. I'm not even going to dream about the newer recommendation of 6.5% until I get to 7.
I've been wearing CGM. I've been testing a gazillion times a day. And I have proof. These are untouched photographs of used glucose test strips in their natural habitat. Which is all over the place (does anyone else have this problem?)

|Obviously this is how they escape. I'm sloppy and always in a hurry and just stick the used strips back in the pouch along with the tissue that should have been discarded 20 tests ago. I know. It is gross. sorry.|
Mr. Wonderful thinks I have a cold or something. Plus I've been trying to work out again. I think it's sore muscles plus hay fever. Does Diabetes know the difference? I think no.
But it's a stressful time right now in our lives too. It's been hard to sleep this past week, and I have insomnia issues that don't need any assistance. I dunno. It's not that my bGs are way out there today. Not in the "scary zone" - but they haven't dropped below about 150 all day today either. And a few days ago (maybe it was over a week ago) I had a full blown roller coaster ride (I plead guilty to rage bolus issues). Normally I try to stay upbeat about all this crap and not take it personally. I learned a long time ago that it doesn't help. But I'm feeling a bit beaten down at the moment. I was hoping that writing a post about it with some humor thrown in would help.
Tomorrow will be better.
