My diabetes seems to have rolled over dead

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 2464

This morning I was only just 219 lb - and tonight I ate rather a lot of carbs and thought I'd be up about 10 at least - and I just got 7.6 mmol/l.
I ate two big slices of a huge watermelon - and lots of peas with my salmon because they were all frozen in a large lump - and got 7.6.

This supposed to be something requiring heroic determination and grim fortitude and suchlike - and it just isn't - it is all too easy.

OK - maybe in a few years it might come back to bite me - maybe sooner - it could be just lulling me into some erroneous sense of having won.

I have this feeling of being let down somehow. No titanic struggle to conquer my dark adversary - just getting quite normal numbers before even a year has passed.

Ho hum.

I know - I'll go and get another slice of that melon. It would be a pity of it went off or mouldy before it got eaten.
