The Monthly Monster
Then we get to the blood sugar reactions once the cycle actually starts. Insulin requirements sometimes go way down. There's no way to know. I figured after 8 years, 96 stabs at figuring out my cycles effect on my blood sugar that I'd have something to show for it. Nope. Every month I tell myself, "maybe this time I'll get it right." Though I inevitably never do. It upsets me a great deal because it really is something I can't escape. 1-2weeks out of every month my levels are erratic and untameable. that is 25%-50% of my life. How can I possibly keep my diabetes management in control when I'm up against those crappy odds?
I would love to hear if anybody else has these problems and if so, what are your management techniques?
