Melancholy

I haven't felt the greatest in the world today. I woke up this morning at 59. I hung out the rest of the morning right around 70 to 75. Not low, but just low enough to scare me that I was going to drop quickly. With my hypo unawareness, it was nerve wracking.
After lunch the blood sugar rebounded and hung out in the upper 100's.

With the highs and lows, I have felt a little bit "off" all day today. And a little bit anti-diabetes. Mostly I just wanted to take a break. But as we all know, there never is a break. Diabetes is always there, Every Day, Every Hour, Every Minute.

Ugh I hate mornings like this. I hope you're doing a little better now.

Ps. Rockville is quick trip around the Beltway from me. Enjoy your time in the great state o' Maryland!

Hi Cara,
Sorry you had such a nasty day. Those hovering lows are difficult to deal with. They hang around - ready to drop at a moment's notice. I hate that. I hope tomorrow is a better day. :)

Best,
Kathy

Hi, I found you through Jillian's blog!

I'm sorry you were feeling low. Sometimes with my son, I can't tell if he's having a low day (emotionally) or a low day (diabetes-wise) and I make him test & test, which just makes him grumpier. Ugh.

I hope your day is better today.

Quite an accurate image there for this mood that strikes us all sometimes.

There's a rainbow around somewhere!
