Quick post because I am at work and reeeallly busy, but I HAVE TO BLOG ABOUT THIS (mostly for myself).
Yesterday, I talked about humalog vs. novolog. This morning, I had a breakfast that I eat pretty often...gave myself the normal amount of insulin and didn't really wait to eat. That was a couple hours ago and I am getting a teeny bit hungry for a small snack, so I decided to check my blood sugar just to see where it's at 2 hours after breakfast. Here's where I do my happy dance.
91! It has honestly been so long since I've seen a "good" number 2 hours after a meal. I've had so many spikes that I haven't been able to tame and usually my # 2 hours later is closer to 200...this has been going on for SO LONG that I cannot remember when I've had such an amazing number after eating. Yes, I am gushing, and yes it is kind of a weird thing to gush over. Again, it may be due to me being more active this last week, but I can't help but wonder if my body/blood sugar is reacting better to the different insulin.
Anyhoo. Having this happy moment is a nice change from the frustration of seeing a higher # than I'd like. It's a nice change from scowling at my glucose meter and muttering a "wtf" in my head. And I feel like I deserve a happy, "yay me" moment to negate all the terrible, unhappy moments I've been having lately. Time for a snack!
