Since I posted on Thursday how I have been running high, I have swung back to the other side, and suddenly my insulin has become super charged. I fought lows through almost the whole weekend.
It seems all I have to do is talk about what is bothering me, and the diabetes fairy will hit me with the stick again and change everything.
I had to abandon a nice nature walk on Saturday morning with my kids because I got low and exhausted my 40g of glucose tabs in my pocket. It really bothered me because my son and I had been talking about this walk for days.
It bothered me quite a bit because it didn’t affect just me this time, but had a very strong negative effect on my kids. They were angels though, and amazingly understood what was at stake if things went bad (which is, by the way, one of a diabetic parents worst nightmares).
I’ve started doing some basal rate testing to try and nail down what the heck is going on, but it is a long and very difficult process. And because I am a master at over complicating things, over thinking myself right into paralysis (right G-Money?), I am making it much more difficult than it has to be.
So I am going to take things slow, and not force the issue. But instead, try my best to break it down into bite size (low carb) pieces, and methodically work my way through it.
To close the post, I want to share a picture that I took at the nature walk (I went back again later in the weekend). I think it is a great example of slow and steady determination, and working when the opportunity presents itself.
