Pour a little sugar on me

Despite my little Archies outburst, I’m doing pretty well.

I’ll start with the good news… my blood sugar was WAAAAY down today.  And I mean in a good way.  Just 12 days ago, my B.S. was 560… today, it was 139!

While I know this is not perfect, its much better.  Even after my big meal of the day (which was a good one, btw) my B.S. was still 168.  I’m not sure how that relates to what it was just 9 hours before… but still much lower than I thought it would be.

Today was the day I was most excited/nervous about since my diagnosis – my first diabetes education class.

I don’t really know what I was expecting and I still don’t really know what I learned.  The one concrete thing that I walked away with — is my blood glucose monitoring tester.  That thing scares the crap out of me.

It’s a double-edged sword.  Not knowing how food affects my blood sugar obviously lead to a problem.  But knowing, scares me just as much.

I’m scared that this will limit me even more, and at the same time show me the harsh reality of what I’ve been doing to myself for years!

Maybe it is time for harsh reality.  No… not maybe. 

It IS time for harsh reality.

This is my wake up call… this is my new life.
