I'm sick. What I thought was becoming a cold has gone straight to my lungs. I'm feeling pretty miserable.

On our way home from dinner I turned to Steve and said that my throat was starting to hurt. Within 10 minutes I was feeling bad. My first thought was "well that explains all those highs I've been dealing with for the past week." Is it bad that I felt a sense of relief to have an explanation even if it meant that I was sick?

Yesterday, after a restless nights sleep, Steve and I participated in the JDRF Walk for a Cure at National's Stadium. I felt bad but was determined to participate in the walk. It was hot out but Steve and I finished and made it home to crash on the couch for a bit. Ever since my blood sugars have been phenomenal. As in I've been hanging out between 70-110.

So today I am testing every 2 hours and curling up on the couch with a cup of hot tea. I despise being sick and having diabetes just makes being sick worse.

Sorry this is such a complaining post.


  1. I hope you feel better!! I hate being sick too. Hopefully it doesn't stick around too long.

  2. Feel better girl! I've been rolling high (unexplained) for a few days and I'm just waiting for whatever sickness is about to take hold. I don't envy you...take care XO

  3. I've noticed since I have diabeties, that when I start to feel bad---serious sickness is on the way. I have broncitis twice a year. No matter how well I try to take care of myself.

  4. Just a quick comment. I've noticed that no matter how bad I feel or how much pain I'm in (I also have fibromyalgia and sarcoidosis), if I get out (or in) and am active in any way at all, my blood sugars drop drastically. So I guess, in the long run, it's better for us to remain active no matter how bad we feel.

    Good job and I hope you feel better soon!!
