Out of context, this early morning Dexcom graph looks like things are all figured out, with barely a bite into the hypoglycemic range. It makes diabetes look easy. It makes blood sugars look like they are something you don't even have to think about.
Until you see the whole picture, in context:
Yesterday was miserable, blood sugar-wise, with numbers cruising around in the high 200's and not budging for hours, despite rage-bolusing. I felt sluggish and exhausted, my brain cells thick with sugar and every word in my mouth swiped by hyperglycemia. Hours with high blood sugars are The Suck. It took a full infusion set change (new insulin bottle, new site, new location) and some exercise to bring things back into some semblance of "control."
The big picture sometimes isn't pretty, but it's real. And today will be better. (I'm saying this over and over in my head, with my shiny new infusion set and this morning's Dexcom graph that's more seascape than mountain range, thankfully.) Today will be better.
