One, Two, Three... And Down We Go

So, Day Four of Diabetes Blog Week 2017.

Topic: What Brings Me Down (aka Throwback Thursday, if applicable).

Ummm........

OK, fine. Let's cue the ELO here, why don't we...




If not that, then maybe...


And shit, if that doesn't work, then maybe the only recourse is...



If those three don't "bring me down," well then screw it, I'm going to ride this glucoaster of being High for a bit.

And then, most likely: I'll have to tell you again, before I get off the floor (due to a triple-effect hypo).

Does that answer the question?!

If not, maybe another #DBlogWeek blogger has a better answer in mind... 

(Seriously, I get it's a play on Mental Health Month and what challenges your mental health when it comes to living with diabetes -- and so I'd double-down on my above points. Because, seriously. High blood sugars are so much a part of mental health and diabetes. It's beyond ridiculous how closely tied together those two issues are, along with other things -- like your thyroid gland being out-of-whack, lack of sleep, and so on. If you don't believe me, Google it. Or just look back at what I've shared on this very topic, in the many years past. It's totally a thing.)

Being a diabetes doctor, i can say avoid stress because Stress hormones in your body may directly affect glucose levels.
When under mental stress, people with type 2 diabetes generally experience an increase in blood glucose levels.
Your blood sugar can also increase when your body is under physical stress. This can happen when you’re sick or injured. This can affect people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
