Drip, drip, drip, drip, etc…

Ok, now I’m tired of it. At the beginning of our present “rainy season” here in NH, I was positive. You know, “Well, this is great for the farmers.” & “At least we won’t have to worry about fires.” According to the news reports, even the farmers are tired of our rain. And we’re so soaked that I don’t think you could light a fire outside anywhere.

So, in between the rain drops, how am I doing on MDI? Not so great some days, wonderful on the other days. I wake up with a fasting between 100 and 110. Not so bad! I drink two cups of “lite” coffee with Splenda and fat free half & half and the stupid BG jumps 80 or more points. At the beginning of this stage, when I was injecting for breakfast I counted b’fast carbs only and was ending up in the 200’s at 3 hours. Now I’m doing the correction thing when I inject for breakfast and by lunch time, numbers are usually normal. The rest of the day is fine although I tend to end up in the 70’s by late afternoon so I’ve started having a snack when I get home from work. I’m still learning and thanks to all of you, I’m figuring it out, slowly but surely. Guess I’ll do the 2 AM check tonight to see where I am in the middle of the night before making too many changes. And no, I don’t think I can quit coffee in the morning.

Have a great July 4th! I think we’ll be celebrating in the rain.

    Life with diabetes is a never-ending learning experience, isn't it? I think I've earned my PhD (Person having Diabetes) by now.
