I truly hope you are well. And this is not your state of affairs at the moment…
As a type 1 diabetic, it’s really easy to see your own body as a war zone especially when your beautiful control goes awry for any reason. (Actually, I love this from pinterest, although it seems to have gone!:
I’m not talking about getting an odd food bolus wrong – that’s really easy to spot, correct and carry on. No, I am talking about the stress events, the things that get the stress hormones going and kick the body off into a wild ride of highs and lows with no rhyme or reason to them.
I’ve had a virus the past few weeks (obviously a virus because I haven’t shaken it yet and generally with bacterially infections, I am a reasonably good fighter unless they’re lurking somewhere odd, like my sinuses).
So, I’ve had the increased basals, the sudden lows and an basal that just isn’t working without some intervention.
Sleep interrupted by highs that just won’t come down.
Blah! And this just a cold. Something minor. Isn’t it time for my flu vaccination?
