Dehydration and High Blood Sugars

And just when I thought everything was going well...

My blood sugar is currently 317. I feel super sore, and on top of it, I'm dehydrated. Honestly, I can't find any other word to describe my physical state than "icky."

I feel icky. Really, really icky. I should be asleep right now, but that's not going to happen. I'd love to curl up in bed right now, and just sleep until I feel like waking up, not when I have to get up for school.

When I'm dehydrated, my knees start to lock up, and it hurts. If they're bent, then they lock up all bent, and oddly shaped. If they're straight out, then I walk around with hockey sticks for legs. It's just rather painful. When my bg is high, I feel like I'm going to vomit. Couple those two, and you're in for a rough night.

I have no reason to complain though. I've got an IV simulation drip of insulin going into my body, and I'm steadily drinking water. I'm laying in my bed, and I'm relaxing, just trying to ride this out. I'm honestly grateful that this is all I have to deal with. I know tomorrow morning, I'll have food on my table, and a great school to be at.

And Spring Break is on Friday...that's another reason to smile.

Although, this really blows. I'd like to be asleep, dreaming of sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows (lol Grace :P), but diabetes doesn't take a nine hour break. It's all the time, all day, all year.

Oh, and a Happy Birthday to one member of my team, Ari. Happy Birthday dude.

Much love,
