Do any of you feel like diabetes runs your life!?!? I know that all diabetics that are trying to properly care for themselves have to think about what we eat and portions.. etc, but I feel like it's taking over sometimes!!! If I get a reading that I feel is too high for what I've eaten I check it over & over!! I just want to get to the point where I'm not constantly thinking/plotting about what my next meal will be & how that meal will affect my BGL. My diabetes is under control and I'm soooo thankful & grateful for that, but anytime I get a reading 120-140 I get upset, like I'm doing something wrong. I'm striving to perfect w/ a disease doesn't always "play fair."
Of course no one in my circle "gets it" and I shouldn't expect them to. I know I'm in control of this, but do you ever feel like diabetes is ALL consuming???
*sigh* in a way I'm grateful for the diagnosis bc w/out it I wouldn't be striving to be healthier, but on the other hand it stresses me the hell out!!
Quick question - do you guys wait 2 hrs after starting or finishing your meals to check BGL??
Thanks for letting me vent!!!
