All night my blood sugar hovered around 200. Almost a straight line. I woke up every time my Dexcom alarmed and bolused.
When I woke up this morning my bg was 197. GRRR!!
Am I getting sick again?
Did my site get pulled out?
Did the insulin go bad?
Haven’t I written this exact blog post before?
One thing that is a constant with diabetes is confusion. I am constantly confused by the outcome of almost every other bolus.
This is why it is so frustrating to hear, “Well what did you eat,” or “what did you do wrong?”
There is no right or wrong. We do what we are told should work and sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t.
If the rest of the world understood the inability to actually control this disease, I think we would get a little more empathy and little less blame thrown our way.
