Feeling Blue

For the past week or so I have been feeling a little bit blue. Since my doctor's appointment, I have really been feeling overwhelmed, unstimulated, and just kind of down in the dumps. I have been in the long process of getting myself out of this funk.

I've keep on thinking to myself, "I really need to blog. I need the support." But sadly, I haven't been able to make that move.

Last night I had a mini breakdown. I felt horrible, my blood sugar was low, I was stressed, and all I wanted to do was cry. Instead, I went to bed at around 8:30 (no worries about the blood sugar, I was doing well before I went to bed). I slept all night long and woke up this morning feeling much better.

Today I have been making an effort to be a little bit more positive in general. It's not perfect, buy I'm getting there. I am feeling motivated to clean my apartment (which is a big plus!), pay all my bills, and blog again. This, I think, is a step forward.

I don't get in these moods very often, but when I do, it is no fun and I annoy myself.

On bright point in my week was a surprise sussy from the wonderful Donna at Donnabetes. She knows how much I love my University of Tennessee! And so she sent me this wonderful IIMC:

I ordered one in the school's colors of orange and white, but when I did, I had been looking for the pink material and couldn't find it. Donna knew this and ran across some of the material.

This is such a wonderful part about the community that we have here. Selflessness and care from people we have never met. That is so important to my life and my diabetes care.

Thanks, Donna.

If any of you are looking for a way to carry your insulin pumps, you really should check out her site here. There is also a link on the right side of my page.

Cara - I hate to hear that you've been feeling blue lately. I hope you're feeling better now.

Hey, thanks for the shout-out about my website. I really appreciate it. I am so glad you like the pink pump pack. I was so excited when I found the fabric. I said, "I have got to get that for Cara!"

Have a great weekend!

Hey Cara,

Feeling blue sucks. I know I've been there too. Often it feels like I'm flirting with the edge of it all the time!

Sending you all the virtual support I can!

Aww Cara I'm sorry to hear you've been down. I'm glad you got a little something to cheer you up in the form of one of Donna's packs. I hope that you can continue to work back towards feeling like your old self.

Cara -

"Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!"

Feel better kiddo, and keep your chin up!

Hey Cara, I hope you are feeling better now! Spring & sunshine are around the corner; that usually helps the blues.

Hang in there and feel the {{{love}}} from the DOC.
