What's with today, today?

When I was in the ninth grade I felt that every situation in life warranted an "Empire Records" movie quote. It seemed like every element of my life was relevant to one of the movie's quotes. Granted, some of them are totally outlandish, but some of them are fantastic. Such as: "Who know where thoughts come from, they just appear" and "damn the man, save the empire!"Okay, so enough with the empire, but seriously do you ever think "What's with today, today?" Why is today any different than any other day. As a T1 Diabetic I often feel like every day I face something with this disease that makes me wonder...what the crap is going on with that? If it is a random high, or low blood sugar, am I feeling sick because of my high blood sugar, or am I high because I am sick. There is not a day that goes by that I am not puzzled by my diabetes life.This past week has held some super high blood sugars, but today, out of nowhere, I have perfect blood sugars, I didn't leave the hundreds all day! I am sure tomorrow will not warrant the same. but as of today, what's with today, today?

I think that is probably one of the things that makes management of diabetes so difficult.

Sometimes there is really no rhyme or reason to it.

See the last sentence in Scott's comment - well change the sometimes to "most often".... Anyhow be happy for the day's results.

It is SUCH a pain for me and all those around me that I always am weighing the different factors, always thinking D! Today my dear husband told me he was sick of always hearing about D. I guess I better lay off for a while. It is not his disease. Just b/c I have to always think about it - he shouldn't have to be burdened too! It is just that if you cannot blab to sommeone about it, you go nuts!

My blood sugars have been fabulous since I quit taking the pill. Just sayin.

Nikki, thanks for the comment over at my blog. I enjoy yours as well and am trying to get my blogroll in order. I'm definitely dreading going off my parents insurance in May, but hopefully I'll be able to find a great job with some awesome benefits.
