In the 6 years since diagnosis, I have noticed that there are times when I am under a lot of different stresses, and if something major is going on, like now, with my mother in the hospital, after a few days of something like that, my BS tends to go lower than usual. I had not checked it every day, I missed several days once she was first there and then when I started checking again, it was just running low. So I do not know how high my numbers got during this past week, but I normally don't have very high numbers at all, this is just how stress affects me. I know for most, it makes it go up.I also notice I have to be very stressed not just a little and it has to last a few days before I see this change.
