Dear Diabetes, you suck.

a front end developer who also happens to have type 1 diabetes

Thanks Diabetes. #not.

I wake up a bit low — drink some juice real fast because I was going to work out… had a decent workout, ending at 139 mg/dL, great, I eat breakfast, give insulin accordingly and then 3 hours later I’m at 58… actually felt like I might pass out… great. thanks diabetes. #not. after a crap load of peppermints (I’m at the office, reminder to self: plan better for lows when not at home), I’m back up to 139… great. Now it’s lunch time… now what? Set up for another crash? Just go high and try to fight the mental fog? this sucks. I’m sorry I can’t be more positive about this, I feel like I should be making more progress, but I’m just angry and frustrated and slightly dizzy. #badday


  1. I just had a couple days like this this week. Keep your head up, it’s only temporary! 🙂

  2. Making progress is a progress. And the ultra fun part in all of it is that even with the best intentions, things can just go wonky just because. You are testing often, and working out! You are documenting and expressing yourself. To me that’s amazing progress. Don’t give up!
