I haven’t posted in awhile. The holiday gatherings were a bit tough for me. It’s a lot easier to manage diabetes when I eat “similar” meals. But, holidays, and get togethers…How many of you are “good” diabetics? During the holidays, I ate what I thought were reasonable treats. It’s not like I ate 20 butter cookies (I ate 3). During another get together, I ate 3 small slices of cakes. Both of these occasions resulted in BG of over 200. Ugh!! Yes I took correction,1 unit then another correction, and in some cases another 1/2 unit. I recall reading that it’s easier to bring up BG than to lower BG. Therefore, some may correct “more aggressively” and then take fast carbs to bring it up. I’m much too chicken to do that.
Sorry for the venting. Except for diabetics, no one understands that this is a 24/7 continuous condition. I would just like to have a break or a vacation. I would just like to have some carefree relaxation without having to 'think" about what food I ought to avoid!
