Another late night at work

Sorry I've been so MIA... work sometimes gets the best of me and then it unfortunately leaves me a little out of touch. I will write a quick post because I'm still at work and it is 8:09 AT NIGHT, my BG happened to ring in at a 47 so I'm just sitting/writing patiently until it rises so I can drive home...

Anyway, the past month or so I've been starting to feel better about things, I don't think I'm as negative (I can never give myself full credit for anything ;) ).

1) I'm trying to reconnect with my family. There has been a lot of miscommunication (or NO communication) going on for what it now seems like years. Who knows what will happen when I actually go home and am face to face with them (BTW they are really nice people, I don't want to make them sound horrid, but we all have our issues, right?). That's always the hardest for me, but I'm taking baby steps.

2) My sister got engaged and I'm the maid of honor. It's going to be a freakn' quick engagement, getting married mid-Sept. Those two are crazy... I'm not much of the planning type so it's probably better that I'm in Bmore and everyone else is in NY.

3) So I have my next endocronologist appt. on Monday. Everytime I go, my head is down in shame. When the doc asks, "Did you do your basal tests" I say, "no" She says, "Well you really need to do them, it's hard to help without seeing any numbers." THIS CONVERSATION HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, I actually did two basal tests for my appt. Thanks to Andrea, she gave me the idea to do the test for all four parts at the same time. I had always done the breakfast fast and then tried the dinner fast. It was much easier, waking up and not eating and seeing how far I could make it into the day before I got low. I made it to 5ish both days, the numbers actually look consistent. I hope the doc is happy with what I've done. It's pathetic and sad, but it's so much more than I've done in YEARS! (Thanks Andrea!!!)

4)I'll finish or write another post later... my blood sugar is officially 104, I'm getting the hell out of here and GOING HOME. Goodbye!!
