When I feel nauseous from hyperglycemia, or irritable from hypoglycemia symptoms I treat them as if they’ll last . Don’t makes a plans for a date, a movie or a dinner because I predict that I’ll still be tired. Yup, even if you plan meeting a year from now.
“How do you know you’ll be sick next week?” a friend asked.
“I just know.”
“Are you going to the wedding next month?”
“Nooo, I’ll might be sick. I’m tired.”
Diabetes sick days put me in a stupor. Sometimes, sometimes they cause me to lay all my last days demands in writing. But when I increase those basal rates for my insulin pump, or eat those disgusting glucose tablets in a few hours I’m relieved of all negative thoughts.
