Not testing as regularly. Eating carbs without dosing for them. Like those bags of peanuts, or handfuls of Vanilla Wafers, or just a pack of crackers. I was hungry, and just didn't care. Just like not uploading my pump data to the laptop, or writing blogs or participating in the Diabetes Online Community as much.
And I'm OK with this, for the most part.
Slacking can be like a vacation of the mind, for us People With Diabetes.
Between the end of the year activity, financial struggles, work and life stress, and hanging out with some none D-friends recently who felt the need to bash my D-nerdiness on various levels... I've felt relatively burnt out and have just resorted to slacking.
The One Touch Ultra Link shows my 7-day average is 206, while the 14-day average is 183 and 30-day average is 162. Obviously, I've been runner higher more recently. Hopefully, not to the extent that it'll damage my hopes of a lower A1c come Christmas week. But we'll see.
You know what? I just don't care right now. It is what it is. I'm generally frustrated with life and people and pretty much the world. And not in a good mood, as we move into the Christmas season. I have just needed a break. A vacation so to speak.
We all get to that point. It is what it is. Hopefully, it doesn't last too long. Soon, Mr. Strickland won't have much to hang on me as far as slacker-ness. I'll be a new and improved, re-energized Person With Diabetes.
Just like George McFly. History is gonna change. Or this D-Future, that is.
