D-Blog Day: EARLY

Today is the 4th Annual D-Blog Day, where bloggers who normally write about diabetes, all write on the same day. See?

I was definitely planning on participating. Just not quite this early.

It's 5:12 in the morning. On a Sunday. When I would normally be in bed for at least three more hours. But something woke me up. It woke me up an hour ago and I ignored it. When I woke up again, I put on my glasses and headed downstairs to test. A low. A definite, not-going-back-to-bed-just-quite-yet-low. I grabbed a juice box and sucked it down. I ate some granola-y type thing. And now I'm waiting for about 15 minutes or so to test again, to make sure everything took.

Did I mention it's 5:12 in the morning? Did I mention it's freezing outside, and freezing inside my house (my heat is turned way down low, because who's up at this hour?)? Did I mention I'm still tired and still want more sleep? Did I mention I had risotto for dinner last night, something that should have more than carbed me up to last through the night and well into the morning? I should have woken up at 8:30 with a respectable, non-low number. Instead, I'm up at 5:12 treating a low. Guess my body knew what it was doing when it woke me up.

Happy D-Blog Day to everyone. I'm going to test, and I'm going back to bed. See you on the flipside, when there's actual sun to type by.

As always, more to come...

I had a low like that a few days ago, and I was not a happy camper. I hope you were able to get back to sleep. Also, now I'm craving risotto. Happy D-Blog Day!

Lora - Happy D-Blog Day, and I hear you on the lows. They are not fun, not in the slightest. I hope you've recovered, and that you got some sleep!! :)
