Go Low

Yesterday was my first day back from a month long winter break. I only had three classes, two being 50 minutes and one being 3 hours but the day was hectic and caused me to go low two times both being 4.7.

Since I have all new classes (besides the three hour class) I had to figure out where they were and most of all how I was going to get from B building to M building in 10 minutes. Not only was this something to think about, I also had to worry about when I was going to eat, I started at 11 a.m and finished at 2 p.m. As usual I ate breakfast around 9 a.m and brought a snack for in between class. Unfortunately by the time I got back to residence my sugar was 4.7, I then had lunch.

The second time I went low was around 10:30 p.m and I had an idea something was up since I was fumbling around my words which gave my roommates some entertainment until Olivia had to fork up some Gushers so that I could bring my sugar back up.

Like anything I have to work around my schedule which means changing insulin dosages and eating at appropriate times. It's hard to manage diabetes when you're trying to manage everything else around you but it is achievable.
