    So my sugar levels are fantastic unless...I get stressed. Thus this week has been...interesting. I'm a caregiver and one of my clients passed, the other responded to her broken heart physically and declined enough we had to hospitalize her. My place to live is dependant on my work, so I'm suddenly homeless and jobless. The family of my clients compounded it by not paying me for the week last week! Just frustrated and sad and my blood sugar responded in kind. Highest numbers I've had in over a year and a half!

    It must be a very stressful time for you just now, so sorry for your loss. Have no experience of your particular situation, so can't help with any advice, but I do hope the rellies come to their senses, and your levels settle down soon

    Settling into a new home. I have 18 new job referrals to follow up on this week. Living in a home my service dog is allowed in. Things are looking up quickly! Still off on the numbers, but not for as long due to jazz helping me. Feeling the stress go as we finalize our battle plan. Thank you for listening. I think I just needed to rant a bit.
