Diabetes is my part-time ‘job’.
I just wanted to put that out there, because with my full-time ‘real’ job, my commute, and trying to manage MDI and T2…that’s it. I have about two drops of energy left to spare.
Does anyone else experience pernicious exhaustion from trying to DO all the things that “normal” people do PLUS all the planning, counting, bolusing, weighing, measuring, learning, correcting, walking, prepping, reading, testing, testing, testing, charting, etc. etc. etc.
I imagine it will get easier eventually (???) but right now I’m crippled with exhaustion most of the time – the kind of exhaustion where your lips go numb and you can’t remember your own birthday or whether or not you already brushed your teeth.
Today’s resolution: to stop trying to do what I used to do and just do what I can after I take care of my health, because without my health, I can’t do anything at all.
Oh gosh, nighty-night. I’ve got to do it all again tomorrow!!!
