My First Post!

I enjoy reading and hearing about other type 1 diabetics’ experiences and stories of what they are going through because I usually find it’s almost exactly what I’m experiencing too. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who gets frustrated when my sugar level is too high or too low or I’m not sure what to do when there are three courses to a dinner with each course arriving at different times, so I’m not sure if I should give myself enough insulin for everything and just hope I don’t get low between courses---or if I should just skip eating and save myself the hassle. So I decided to follow everyone’s lead and start my own diabetes blog and jot down my everyday frustrations and successes with the condition.

My latest frustration is my current A1C level. My doctor’s nurse practitioner called me earlier today to let me know she got the results back and they were not ideal. Apparently my A1C was 6.6 (it’s important to be under 7 but my doctor’s goal for me is under 6). Yikes. I felt so guilty on the phone with the nurse that I just kept telling her that I would work harder at keeping my levels lower. It was almost like I was begging her for another chance, like she was going to fire me from being her patient haha. Oh well. Hopefully next time I’ll be better!
