Well, here's my entry for today's topic of CHECK - for more of the topics for each day this month during National Diabetes Awareness Month or NDAM - see Kerri Sparling's link for all the details (e.g. use the hash tag of #dmpad in your posts in various areas the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) post in)
UPDATE for my posts/pictures - they are going to be scattered due to amount of time I have on my hands - it all depends on my story behind the picture (I like to sometimes put explicit details in my picture posts LOL). Diabetes1.org won't allow me to use the hyperlinks for Twitter/Facebook/G+ - but just search for me under FatCatAnna you will ALWAYS be able to find my contributions at these places if it's not posted here at this website!
I woke up with a low blood sugar (#BGnow) this morning - this was even after PIGGING out on some of the leftover candy bars we had from Halloween (so much for buying a large box of chocolates - when only 10 Trick or Treaters came by on Halloween).
I am terrible when I'm around sweet things - I swear - REALLY I DO - they talk to me. I cannot resist them. I do justify the amount of insulin to eat them - but with my latest weight issue - hmmm - not good.
Here's my blood sugar 4 hours later (10.1 mmol/l or 180 mg/dl) - I hadn't given any insulin coverage (bolus - for meals - my basal insulin still does it' job in the background on my pump) - so not bad for what I'd nibbled on for breakfast ...
NB: DH has now hidden the chocolate bars safely away from me - even if I'm foaming at the mouth angry/spitting/screaming - unless he feels I should have one - he is to resist my pleas for CANDY!!! I am not the Tazmanian devil (the picture below is what was on my door Halloween night).
Also, you can find my entry for Day 1 - PAST - at this link - and it's abit of a shocker (it was for me) - a hint - my A1C number back in '94.
