Well that was wierd. I was suspecting my last couple of blood tests to head swiftly downwards yesterday afternoon but the last one had gone up from the relatively stable 6 or 7 that the earlier ones had been by nine mmol/l and I ended up on the last one at 15.0???
I do however think this is an abberation and so will be doing another afternoon fasting test before I think about adjusting my basal rate for the afternoons.
The volleyball match was okay but I only played one set and hideously overcompensated for my previous few sessions undereating and ended up pretty high (shouldn’t have mixed the jelly babies and fanta tropical drink!) but at least I know what I have to do now, it’s just a case of getting the doses of carbohydrates right for the amount of exercise I do.
Today has been okay although I had a bit of a low patch between 9am and 1pm but have been fine since.
Apart from that I have promised myself that I am going to stop swearing. I’m trying to go cold turkey but it’s actually a lot harder than it seems when you’ve worked in engineering and IT in your career. Some of the guys I knew in engineering used to know words that I didn’t even recognise or understand and had to look them up or ask someone else afterwards. These were then of course written in to my vocabulary and have been in common usage by me ever since.
I doubt this will affect my control but you never know, perhaps I’ll be more relaxed!
