Here I was doing so great yesterday, the readings were good 4.4(79) before breakfast and lunch. I went out for Chinese (haven't been for a couple of months) had an egg roll, stir fry chicken & veg, 1/2c steamed rice & jasmine tea. Dosed with 7iu NovoRapid and when I checked after 2hr I was at 6.8(122) and I was so pleased with myself that I seemed to have got it right for a change. Even by supper time I was 5.8 (104) and bedtime 4.4 again. I was patting myself on the back that I had done so well for the day for the first time in a long time. But then I was writing up the day in my private journal and everything just came crashing in on me. What good was one day in the scheme of things? I'll never get rid of this beast. All the doubts came crashing back. No one will tell me how I got this type 1 especially at my age (62) it is practically unheard of, the odds are astronomical, nor how to get rid of it. It just seems so futile, so hopeless. All the work with no results. Sorry to vent but I just had to get it out.
