Open letter to my blood sugar . . .

Dear Blood Sugar,

WTF?  Really, what is your problem?  Last week you were throwing way too many lows.  I mean, come on, a 30 mid-morning and a 39 in the evening - both on the same day?  And it wasn't like I ran a marathon or S.W.A.G.ed my bolus or anything.

To make matters worse, what the heck pissed you off yesterday?  Really, whatever it was, you shouldn't have taken it out on me with an unwarrented 228 fasting blood glucose.  Come on, you know I didn't do anything to deserve that one.

And while we're at it, I have a favor to ask.  You know you owe me one, for all of the trouble you've been putting me through lately.  So can you ask your friend, Ms. Interstitial Fluid, to resume sending accurate numbers to the CGM?  I know she can do it, because she has been since they were introduced.  But they must have had some sort of a tiff, because for the past day or so, she been reporting numbers that are way off.  Please tell her to get over it and make friends with Mr. CGM once more.

So come on.  Let's all be pals again and play nice.  Trust me, we'll all be much happier for it.



  1. Too cute!! Do you think it will listen??:)

  2. I agree Lynnea! Too cute.

    I do hope they listen to one another. I mean really, can't we all just get along!! Harmony is bliss and seriously missed on most days, huh!

    Keep us posted. Sorry to hear of the lows especially, ick. Those are the worst. And bad lows too. Whoa.

  3. Great post, Karen.

    (And I'm looking forward to our dinner next week!!)

  4. blood sugars are like men. you can talk and talk and talk and it never sinks in.


Thanks for your comment!
