I haven't been able to blog in a long time....... Why? I feel like I have nothing more to say. I feel like a broken record that says the same thing over and over. I have really been thinking several weeks about how to explain this and I get nowhere. All of you are great, and I hope you remain my friends!!!! Maybe things will change and I will want to talk about diabetes again, but right now I am so terribly FED UP with even thinking about it. I am discouraged because I do not understand why my meal bolus have so dramatically increased. Here comes the broken record again - for years, up until February 2007 I always took 2.5U meal bolus for breakfast and 5U for lunch. I eat the same and get the same exercise, but now I need 4U for breakfast and 7.5U for lunch. The dinner meal bolus sometimes needs a teeny bit more. Basal UNchanged. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY. I have really been tired and I practically always have 0.3mmol/l ketones. I have told all in my troop of doctors, and blood tests have revealed NOTHING! The meal bolus requirements started to decrease, but then I had to increase them again. Since what I need does not stay stable, I am constantly adjusting with coke for hypos and correction boluses for too high tests. I am keeping a good level - but it is dam hard and I just HATE thinking about diabetes. I have to spend the remaining time doing something else. I HATE NOT UNDERSTANDING. I am always, always thinking about what could be causing this. I hope I am not sick with something else - that thought grumbles inside me! I have told all doctors and there is nothing else I can do. So I am royally PISSED! On the other hand that IS diabetes - never understanding, always adjusting and never getting help from doctors.

So please stay my friends. Maybe sometime I will write some more entries, but right now I cannot do it. Please forgive me. I hope you will understand, because you have this dam disease too!

Skye says woof to all you guys!
