I’m going to admit that this has been happening for a few weeks now. It happened when I first got to Utah, then it calmed down and I was in range, for the most part, for a couple of months. Now, since the temperatures plummeted and the holidays consumed me (or rather, I consumed lots of sugary carbs), I’ve been seeing numbers like this often. I already increased my basals a little bit but because I am living alone now I am afraid to adjust any more.
I was supposed to have an endo appointment in November, but when I found out I was moving out here I canceled it and rescheduled one for March. After March, I probably won’t be able to see her until October. It’s not really a good thing when you’re gallivanting around the country trying to gain enough experience for a permanent job, because consistently seeing on endo is difficult to do. I don’t know that my canceled appointment would have had any effect on my blood sugar control, but I know that I feel guilty for missing it, especially because it’s my guess that if I got an A1C test right now my level would be over 8% after I worked so hard to get into the 7′s.
I feel like a fail. I also feel sick all the time.
Hai Endo, Halp!
