Last week my levels were sooo good. I was patting myself on the back for my tight control, which I do have to work hard for.
Then on Saturday I had an event which my body obviously decided was stressful…so last Friday came the rises in sugars. Stubborn rises too…not coming down unless they crash down into a low and then we have that crazy roller coaster happening with delayed adrenaline highs. Argh!
Which then makes me more stressed, because I am planning on TTC next year, more high sugars. Repeat vicious cycle.
I am a self confessed perfectionist too…which does not help when my body has other plans for me in the blood sugar world! I meditate daily to stay on top of stress but we can’t control life! Nor should we.
How do you guys cope with stress? With the unpredictable nature of it oftentime-aside from correcting for the highs?
Any other helpful ways of managing (diabetes OR dealing with the stress) when you find yourself in this loop?
