Time Keeps on Ticking
Something that I’ve noticed lately is that my mornings, and in some cases my early evenings, are passing by much more quickly. I couldn’t really figure out why at first, but the more I’ve thought about it I think it has to do with my blood sugar testing.
Yes, it sounds weird, but it kind of makes sense. After breakfast each morning, the first thing on my mind is “I need to test my sugar again in two hours”. By the time I get to work, it’s always at the forefront of my mind; making sure that I get my sugar tested.
The same thing happens at lunch. I take my sugar, cook and eat my food, and then think about my next two-hour finger stick. While it’s not the only thing that I’m looking toward, it is a milestone that my minds seems to get stuck on. Before I know it, two hours has passed and I’m taking my sugar again. For dinner I follow the same pattern and two hours seem to vanish in front of me.
I woke up laughing this morning. Not because anything was particularly funny, but my fasting number this morning was exactly the same as it was yesterday. Yes, I can find humor in the strangest of things, but I’m good with that. If you can’t laugh at what your body is doing to you on a continual basis, what can you laugh at?!?
Speaking of my sugar, things have been looking pretty good recently. Over the course of the last week I’ve been able to keep my numbers in the “you’re not really diabetic” range, which I’m thinking is pretty impressive. I’m sure my increased Metformin dose has a lot to do with it, and in some cases I’m worried that I’m a bit low (like my before lunch number from today), but I’m still happy with the numbers.
In a few years, when my disease has progressed, I’ll be looking back at these numbers with fondness…
