19.6.19... DAY NINETEEN

Published by Geordie lass in the blog Geordie lass's blog. Views: 207

Dear Dia-BULLY,

You continue to be kind to me and work alongside me so that we can have an understanding of one another. I am amazed that we are being good to each other. I really need this to continue. I hate it when you burn me out and cause my BGL’s to spike and drop without warning. I hate it when you kick me down and cause me to hate you when my BGL’s make me feel tired and unwell. I just want us to continue being amicable because we both know there is no escaping one another…stuck like glue, we are!

My bedtime BGL’s last night were quite high at 11.6mmol/L. But a correction sorted that one…1.625u to correct! Blood ketones were sitting at 3.7mmol/L, slightly up from previous evening.

I’m happy with that. My FBG this morning came down a little to 9.7mmol/L, did my morning finger prick, calibrated my pump, gave a correction for my FBGL and bolused for my morning coffees…the usual morning routine. A large correction of 1.5u needed this morning on top of my usual morning bolus of 0.4u, for my coffee with cream.

No lunch again today…just not feeling hungry, so skipped it! I did a finger prick and calibrated my pump at 1pm...all good at 6.6mmol/L. No correction needed. So, just bolused for my 2x afternoon coffees and 2 squares of Lindt 90% Dark Chocolate…0.7u. I ate my chocolate at 4.30pm (so, that’s a FAT FAST of 21.5 hours).

My BGL’s have been steady today…again. Peaked at 6pm...not sure why! :wtf:
They are currently 9.8mmol/L (7.30pm).

My dinner was Roasted Chicken Drumsticks, which I ate at 6.30pm. OMAD, the best way to eat! I thoroughly enjoyed my chicken and actually felt physically hungry for it too.

My TDD has been good today.

My macronutrients have been awesome too. I’ve had 8g net carbs. Brill!

Infusion set needs a change tonight too. Those 3 days go over very quickly!

So Dia-BULLY, let’s continue to support one another and continue to love one another, as that is the only way to go. We know we are stuck with one another, so what’s the point in fighting with each other??!! :rolleyes: Gold star for us both again! Nice one! ⭐⭐
