I feel so proud of myself when my BS levels are good !!! But on the other hand when they are higher I feel like I could have done more and a failure.

Isn't that normal for us? We do so good and then for some reason our bodies act all wonky and we feel like we are failing. But we are not!! You have been doing so good, don't let one set of #'s take away all you have accomplished. You are doing great. When that feeling comes on you, look yourself in the mirror and remind yourself you are a warrior and one battle does not define the war! You are winning! Also coming here are reaching out is wonderful. You know we are all here to support you. Keep up the awesome job! God Bless, Mickey

It is ok to feel down a bit sometimes, I think that many of us do that. Last night I sinned and ate spaghetti, not just the amount I should have but double that. It is such a hard disease at times. I am really dreading the holidays which I have made food such a huge part of.
Renee I think I told you once before that we are human so we are not perfect. You are a smart Lady and you know when you mess up but you get right back to fighting this devil.
God bless,

I understand how you feel. After 3 years of ups and downs, I try to look at it a bit like the stock market (in reverse). It may be up or down a bit, but hopefully the overall trend is down in this case. If you get too concerned over one bad reading, it might make you feel like giving up, but don't do that. Learn from it (e.g., what did you eat, etc.) and go for a walk (which is an amazing way to reduce blood sugar almost immediately). Good luck!
