This insulin journey is now in it's second, or is it third week? I've lost track, started on the evening of the 19th October ... so let's see (fingers and toes out for counting), okay 15 nights tonight, so just over two weeks.
I started on 10ml as instructed, stayed on that for 4 nights, made little to no difference, so upped it to 12ml, a slightly downward shift, very slight. So up to 14ml next, still only a small shift downward. So up to 16ml and suddenly I get mid 7's two mornings in a row. Happy dance.
And then the crappiness of this bloody disease hits again, next morning I've jumped up a lot, back to almost where I was when I started. So I immediately up the insulin to 18ml, forgetting until this morning that the Prof said increase by 2s until 16 and then 4s, and another crap reading this morning, although a smidge down on yesterday morning.
So tonight its 20ml ... lets see what the morning brings, I fear it's not going to be good because tonight we did take away - sigh, there was nothing in the cupboards because hubby didn't have time to shop, or the will to go to the shops and shop tonight. I don't blame him, it's been a long and hard week for both of us in lots of ways.
It's not excuse though, I need to just get back into shopping, too bad if my bad can't cope, it is not fair that he has to do it all. I am happy to online shop, but he doesn't want that as he likes to pick the food he is cooking.
I've still been down about the whole suggested lap sleeve surgery, but the more this disease plays with my head, the more it becomes a choice I might be willing to take.
So even though the full moon was only the other night, there is no brightness here tonight.
Thanks for popping by.
An added p.s - just to show you how this plays with your mind, after thinking I would get a crap reading this morning, I got a 7.5 - go figure!!!
