So far, I don’t think my blog has lived up to its tagline. I’ve not really been juggling diabetes and grad school since I’ve started this blog–I’ve just been juggling diabetes.
I spent this summer adjusting to my new life: coming to terms with the fact that I have a chronic disease, sharpening my carb counting skills, starting my insulin pump, learning how to integrate diabetes into my life without letting it take over my life.
And then school started.
It’s been one week and I feel completely out of control.
My blood sugar skyrocketed after breakfast. Since I haven’t checked after meals much the past couple of weeks, I’m wondering if I’ve been high after breakfast every day or if it’s just what I ate. Exercise? Haven’t been exercising either. At least I’ve started logging blood sugar numbers again.
It will get better though. Soon, I’ll know my new schedule and settle into a new rhythm. But for now, I feel like a very clumsy juggler.
