Kristin - “sand pit in the back of my throat feeling”. Great description! I’ve often felt that weird sensation (during a high blood sugar) but never knew how to explain it. Couldn’t understand why I feel that way either.
Steve - I’m not sure if this was what you were trying to say, but it carries an important message. We (Ok, maybe only me) tend to blame diabetes for everything. Yet. after eating a pound of bacon, or enduring tons of stress, we (correction - I) check the blood sugar, and when the number is good, can’t figure out why we feel so lousy. I always have to remind myself that there are other things, not diabetes related, that can make me feel sick.
Hopefully this will pass and you’ll start feeling better. The good news is that you’ve got forums like this one to spill your guts and start complaining about whatever bothers you. We don’t judge you for it, we just realize that “hey, it’s not just me!” and try to help.
