The Good, The Bad, And The Puppy!

Apologies for the recent lack of posts, it's been a busy/tiring few weeks both D and non-D wise!

We recently got a puppy called Winnie who's now about 10 weeks old. Very tiny and seriously cute but is still getting used to being away from her family so still whimpering and crying when she's left on her own. A couple of broken nights along with the early shift has meant me feeling like a zombie most of the week!

But how can you stay mad at this little face?

Had a couple of nasty hypo's this week (both below 2.5mmol) which got me down quite badly, to the point where I almost burst into tears after 10 minutes of being at work. When I'm that low I seem to lose control and turn into a dustbin, eating everything and anything I can get my hands on until I feel less shaky (which isn't a good idea at all). The second night I did this it rebounded and in the morning was over 20mmol.


Since getting back off holiday I've tried so hard to get back on track and its totally cocked up again. I'm fighting to get my 30 day meter average under 10mmol when before it was lingering around the high 7/8 mark!

My levels during the day are between 4 and 10 which I'm really pleased with but it doesn't seem to be making any difference to my meter average :(

Am feeling a bit better today after being very pissy for most of the week, it's my birthday next week (the big 22) and then I have the Chap Olympics next month along with my second forum meet! Plus I'm getting D friendly cupcakes!!!

You want another picture of Winnie?

Oh go on then... :D

Big 22??? Yikes, I just hit 35! Happy Birthday Emma!!! D is like rocket science with all the ups and downs, I tend to eat until I stop shaking too...I'm trying to knock that off. Hope this week is WAY better for you. Cute pup!!!

hi Emma
just found your blog and as I always do with a new one I looked back through some older posts. Saw your post about going high on holiday. My daughter is T1 (15 y o ) and she always goes higher in heat. She was diagnosed 2 years ago and we were given the same advice about heat and needing less insulin but some people just swing the other way. She tends to need about 30% more in heat regardless of what she is eating and it took us a while to figure this out. Happy birthday for next week.
