I’m having one of those weeks where I’m bored of diabetes. I’m not particularly angry or upset, I’m not having a “why me, it’s not fair, I don’t want it any more” episode, I’m just a bit bored of it.
Blood testing feels a bit tedious.
The whole palaver of changing an infusion set really doesn’t inspire me.
I can get my blood sugar to run steady overnight at an 8, why can’t I get it to run steady at a 5 instead?
My afternoon basal isn’t quite right but it seems a lot of effort to change it (and to be honest, it really isn’t that hard to do).
I’ve been meaning to order a repeat prescription since last Thursday but haven’t quite got round to it yet.
There’s nothing truly wrong. Work is going well, life is good, I just can’t really be bothered with being an unpaid nanny to my pancreas. I’m not my usual good diabetic self. I diagnose a mild case of diabetes fatigue.
Or what about a diabetes bank holiday where we all get the day off or at least get paid triple time for all pancreas-related activities?
Short of all of that, I’m sure a good night out and a few glasses of red should get things moving again. If I could get that on prescription I could definitely find the motivation to order one!
