Last Friday, I had my latest endocrinologist appointment. I went into the appointment nervous because I’ve really let my diabetes care slack the last few months. While I have been testing pretty frequently, I haven’t been uploading my CGM data to review so I haven’t been making any necessary adjustments. I also haven’t been sleeping very well and I think that is wreaking havoc on my blood sugars because the lack of sleep makes my blood sugars higher and I snack a lot more when I’m tired which also contributes to higher blood sugars.

However two months ago, I found out I could no longer say I was complication-free. […]
Life has been really overwhelming for me recently. I really enjoyed DBlogWeek but devoted a lot of time to it and as a result, I got behind on other stuff. I’ve been trying to play catch up on work while still dealing with a non-sleeping baby and various other stuff going on in my personal […]
