The Rest of the Day

January 17, 2012

You know those days where you have a million things planned and as soon as one thing doesn’t go right, it’s all harder to get done?  That was last Thursday for me.  I had a ton of things to get done for me and for work, and I just wanted to be mad.  And perfect.  So for the first time in a long time I watched what I was eating RELIGIOUSLY and bolused for EVERYTHING (+some).  And what does that equal?  A low Briley.  Not a serious low.  But low.  Run out of juice low.  And you know what happens when a chronically low Briley spills her coffee?  The coffee isn’t the only thing spilling!  I was crying!  Over spilt coffee.  And it all came down to ONE NUMBER.  Which in turn made me EVEN madder.  The thing is 7.8 is NOT horrible.  Especially after spending 6+ years above 8.  Yes it is going in the wrong direction.  But yes I also have a support system I didn’t have then.  One number will not and has not defined me, and I will focus and pay attention and I will still live my life and love what I am doing.  Hmph! *crosses arms and pouts to diabetes*

    Posts like yours always teach me so very much. I haven’t been at this that long and there are days that I just want to give up. But you and others have taught me that I’m not a failure, that it’s just one day and there’s always another day. Thanks for writing so I know I’m not so bad, just having ups and downs like everyone else.
    On another note… Barbara D and I are hoping to meet for dinner one night this month, when it’s not snowing, sleeting, etc. Let me know when/if you’ll be up in NH, maybe the three of us could meet!
