So, I am still going through some dips at the thought of a life of bland food but strangely the last couple of days I just haven't felt hungry and haven't eaten much. I used to feel ravenous but not any more. Still its good for me to shed some pounds. Since being diagnosed I have been strict in what I eat but he other night I ordered a couple of so called friendly take out dishes, but when it turned up, I couldn't enjoy them. I was more worried about undoing the work I have done and what if suddenly I would suffer from severe after effects? Never mind the fact that I have been eating all sorts of stuff for years with a BG count of over 15, without experiencing issues, and besides that the dishes were also boring, I'd rather go without next time. In my head, I wonder, can I find a way to manage this that nobody else has? Can I "bank" carbs over several weeks? Let me explain, diabetes doesn't work to a day or a week, its there, all the time for ever. So who came up with the plan to fit management of it in to 24 hours and why? Why not manage it over a week or a month? I get that its to do with spikes in BG but if its there in the background its there all the time. Kind of like you get daily, weekly and monthly views of the stock market. Why not come up with another way of monitoring that gives a wider view? Surely if we fall in to a routine, its continuous anyway. Have I stumbled on to a new approach ? Has medical science got it wrong and are too tick box focused? Or am I completely barking mad ? I don't wat to be held ransom to this disease but I don't want to lose any more to it, now or in the future either. I am going to make it my mission ... time permitting... to discover a new way to deal with this where people us can have our cake and eat it. If by some miracle I can come up with another way that is equally or better at managing this, having an appreciation as to what everyone goes through, Id give it away for free.
