Person holding a tissue over their nose
Sigh… I am sick again. I caught that nasty cold that has been making the rounds here. (That’s what you get when it is still raining in January, not snowing.)
The cold is getting me dehydrated (with the fever and my nose running like a faucet), which means higher blood sugar. And, with all that mucus I feel nauseous, which makes eating more difficult than usual. The combo of everything makes my diabetes much harder to deal with. Blah. Nothing is ever simple.
This has not been a great week for me health-wise. I started the week with a case of food poisoning. I’m guessing that was just enough hit to my immune system to allow me to catch a nasty cold. Blah. I had to dip into my records to find my sick day plan. I should have looked at it sooner, because it didn’t quite match up with my current healthy day plan. Blah again! It took a bit to get it working right. Honestly, looking at my last blood sugar reading, it still needs a bit of tweaking.
