I just can't seem to get back to blogging, no matter how hard I try! It's very frustrating. Something has to give, I get that. But I really don't want it to be LiveJournal. My blog is important to me...
It's well past midnight, so I'll once again be backdating this. And, YES, I still plan to fill in the recent days I've missed. If I can ever find the time.
Yesterday (Saturday) night (actually early Sunday morning), I had a low blood sugar incident. I woke around 5:00 a.m. feeling yucky. I managed to rouse myself and test my blood, which was 60. That's the lowest number I've ever had, and I felt awful. I was thinking all that clearly, but I grabbed some chocolate and ate it. I felt so hungry! I got a bowl of cereal and milk and ate that. And I eventually ate more candy. I re-tested and was up to 87 half an hour later.
I read up and found some guidelines that reassured me, so I finally went back to bed. I considered waking Marilyn, but she was sleeping so soundly that I didn't do that.
She was pretty upset with me and made me promise to always wake her in the future.
Yes, low blood sugar can be serious, if it's low enough. Generally that would be numbers under 60. My symptoms were what is considered MILD to MODERATE, just to be clear. Even so, it makes you feel very yucky.
I was talking to Marilyn about back when we were attending the classes together. The main woman was so unhelpful! She had never been diabetic herself, so she was VERY dismissive of lows. Yeah, easy for her to blow it off, considering she had no clue how crappy it feels!
Anyway, Marilyn and I had planned to go get our manicures and pedicures first thing this morning. She was up and ready, so I got up and got dressed and ready, too.
We've quit phoning for appointments, considering they'll take drop-ins ahead of you, anyway. Now we just try to be there when they open. We were there before 10:00 -- which is when they normally open -- but they open at 11:00 on Sundays.
Anyway, we went to Starbucks with sister Sue, which was nice.
We were back doing our nails at 11:00.
After that we stopped at home and got our things and headed downtown to the office. We needed to work, after being off last week. We both had a ton to do!
We did take time to walk to McDonald's and get sandwiches for lunch -- and some steps in! We ate at Marilyn's desk.
Then we did more work.
We met Sue after that for dinner, which was quiet and nice. The three of us were thinking about going to the show together, but Marilyn and I were so tired we changed our minds. (We're thinking now we might go Tuesday night.) I was just starved at dinner and ate every bite. Silly, condidering I'd had breakfat and lunch! But I guess it's about my messed up blood sugar. Oh! And it was really nice of Sue to buy us dinner!!!
We went for a walk in the park when we got home, to finish up our steps. Then we headed for naps. I just woke up. Marilyn is sound asleep on the sofa...
We were both planning to wash our hair tonight. I guess that's not happening now!
I have a new person to train for the festival tomorrow, first thing. (There will be three more after her.) Donn will be in to do additional computer work.
I really need to head to bed...
Fitbit Update: Marilyn did 7,218 steps. I did 8,652 steps. Obviously we both could have done 10,000 if we'd gotten on the treadmill, but what the hell. We were well over our daily goals, so it's all good. We both missed our goals yesterday...
