20 May Daily Drudge Report

Trying to manage diabetes is hard because if you don’t, there are consequences you’ll have to deal with later in life.

Mondays. I seriously despise Mondays. Mondays are one of the two days a week I regularly drive into one of my client’s offices an hour away from home. Normally I don’t mind, it gets me out of the house. However, last night was one of those nights sleep eluded me.

From about 23:30 (that’s 11:30 at night for those who can’t figure out the 24 hour clock) I tried closing my eyes but 20 or 30 minutes later I’d be awake again. I tried reading, going down the Reddit and Youtube rabbit holes, and even listening to spa music.

Nothing worked. I was up until 4 in the morning and had to be awake at 6:30.

Pro’s of Being Awake All Freaking Night Long

Cons’s of Being Awake All Freaking Night Long

  • Needing an IV full of caffeine
  • Annoying and irritating people increase the chance of jail time due to murder
  • Headache
  • Lack of concentration
  • Agreeing to things just to make those annoying people go the fuck away
  • Not wanting to go do the exercise you intended on doing
  • Being a fully functional adult seems like a daunting task

At Least My Blood Sugar Behaved Today

Honestly, the only saving grace is that my blood sugar has behaved today. As you can see it’s mostly been a low carb day.

I had planned on going out for a cycle when I got home from my client. The theory was around 17:00 or 18:00 my basal insulin would be starting to run out of steam and if I didn’t inject any bolus insulin, I would be less likely to bottom out. At least try to make 8km instead of 7.5.

Unfortunately, I have absolutely no steam left. So it’s dinner, some Elder Scrolls Online and an early bed time.
