Getting a handle on diabetes…

I’m learning to monitor my blood sugar more, and learning about what i can and cannot eat.  It’s hard to change 50 years of eating habits.  it really is…even when your life depends on it.

I checked my blood sugar at 7 am, before I left for work.  i had 2 cups of tea with stevia, and 2 bowls of unsweetened cheerios.  My blood sugar was 323!  Yikes.  Around 1045 this morning, while at work, my sugar dropped all the way down to 76.  having your blood sugar slip low is not a good feeling.  I start shaking and sweating…i couldn’t focus at all.  Luckily my lunch break was at 11.  I took a bottle of water, a protein bar and a bag of peanuts to the breakroom and ate them.  by 1130, my blood sugar was way back up at 165.  not the ideal lunch by any means, but i didn’t think I should be behind the wheel of a car while I was feeling the way i was.

i really need to get this under control.  I really need to.
