- I'm a glass-half-full type of girl. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, grave's disease and celiac disease in 2010 and life-altering allergies in 2013. I believe having a positive attitude is the only way to live with dis-ease. I also believe that life doesn't have to be PERFECT for it to be WONDERFUL. Dis-ease is expensive, so I live a frugal yet healthy lifestyle. This is just my blog; my day-to-day story.

Just a short note cuz I'm at work.
Well, this is always an awesome way to start your day. This is how mine started on Monday morning. The sugar monster apparently visited sometime during the morning. This was after a long night of low lows, the you-don't-get-much-sleep-all-night lows. Sometimes you just get caught in the blood sugar swing, for no apparent reason. What I was most upset about is that I didn't even get to enjoy an activity that brought it that high. If my bg is going to go that high, I'd like it to be after I've done something entirely enjoyable, like ate an entire pan of cupcakes.
I also wanted to follow up on my sugar scrub experiment. After covering myself with at least 3 cups of sugar mixed with honey and milk from head to toe (hello carb, carb and carb), my blood sugar didn't go up at all. Which leads me to wonder even more the theory that everything you put on your skin goes into your bloodstream. I'm going to have to research that some more.
