Is there anyone who has a job that is so crazy, demanding and busy that they struggle with time to take care of thier diabetes? I am working through breakfast, lunch and dinner and feel like I am constrained in taking glucose readings, shots and eating. I work on a competitive team of very healthy, energetic people. I am not complaining and I really love my job but I feel like my health is taking a hit. Stress and transition is a part of the work environment. I would appreciate any tips and suggestions on how people deal in a situation like this.
I am really trying and my heart is in the right place, but I feel like I don’t have a minute to spare at work and I am getting so tired at night that it is difficult even to find the energy to prepare food for the next day. I am behind in my doctors appointments too for fear of missing time at work. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am a Type 1 on MDI and have other health concerns.
