The Mind Reader

I'm not liking my numbers these days. It's nothing dramatic, but I'm spiking in the 200s after meals more often than I would like. Of course, all this started happening just after I caught myself thinking, "Wow, my averages look really good, I've really got my blood sugars under control."

It could be stress, or hormones, or the particular version of ick going around in my neck of the woods. But why is it that I suspect diabetes is able to read my thoughts and know when to throw me for a loop? How does it know when to pull a fast one on me? What is it about this disease that makes it such a head game?

Ugh...oh well, it's Monday. Here's to better days--and numbers.

I hear you!! Just last night I said to my husband "I hate to jinx myself, but I haven't had a single 200 reading since the day I went on the pump." Sure enough, 264 last night. Why does Diabetes feel the need to give us a smack-down?

I hope the new weeks brings you much better numbers. :)

I have been having a time and a half in about the past 6 weeks. I don't even know what to do about it. My insulin intake has gone up and I keep having the completely unexplained highs and lows completely randmoly.
It must be in the air...

Good luck in getting those numbers down. From your post it sounds like you'll do it!
