Life has been stressful around here lately. I didn't realize how vulnerable we all are to stress.
Stress results when something causes your body to behave as if it were under attack. My body has been responding to loss. It has been acting like it is under attack.
Two weeks ago my friend and neighbor Wanda died suddenly. Last weekend my brother-in-law Ernie, passed away and then the next day, my Aunt Vivian died. It is stressful telling folks about death, it is stressful thinking about it, it is stressful helping the mourners while trying to continue to eat right, medicate properly and so on. Whether the loss is expected or completely out of the blue, I have a physical reaction to loss and grieving. I know I am not alone.
I came across one article I want to share with you - the link follows: Stress - I guess my lowered A1C could be in jeaopardy if things don't lighten up around here. I need a weekend on the cape!
I welcome input on your experiences with your BG levels over the course of time. I know the numbers are not my fault. But I'd be lying I didn't say I patted myself on the back these last two days when I saw the lower figures again.
