Hey everyone. Hannah here. Wow, it feels like forever since I have posted anything! I've been a sick little divabetic, but now I'm better. Which is good. Which brings me to the subject of my discussion: Stress and diabetes.
Stress obviously affects everyone. Whether you are 5 or 55. But, when your 15, the world is going to end. No matter what. (you know it's true. don't deny it.) When the world seems to be ending mentally, physically it is making life even more stressful. My blood sugars can go from 145 to 450 to 45 in a matter of hours, which just makes the whole "Oh my goodness I have midterms this week" situation go way down hill, or say your transfering schools.
Speaking from personal experiances, both of those seriously affect blood sugars. I found out I was transfering in the begining of summer, and everything was ok. But about 4 weeks before school started, I realized I had to start completely over with my life, had to make new friends, and start a new chapter in the big book of Hannah's life. So, after school started, my bloodsugars were super crazy. I was in the nurse's office a lot and just felt terrible. After I started making friends, everything went back to normal. Crazy right?
As stressful as stress can be, if we didn't deal with it, we wouldn't be human I guess.
