I was close once...at 7.3 Enough to trigger a hasty "Good Job! Now do better" from the endocrinologist.
Instead,I did worse.(the power of reverse psychology on the tender D psyche)
11.5 years,thousands of set changes & pricks & highs and lows later,diabetes is just as hard as it was,starting out.Jump on band wagon,fall off.Repeat process.We do the best we can with what we have,and some people out there who shudder in horror at the thought of anything 8.0 and beyond really won't get the point of this post.Even some type 1's.Most appts,they'll hear "Excellent Job!" and can bask in the glory of that.They don't really understand the others..it's much harder,and when the topic comes up,we clam up.(for obvious reasons) There is still so much judgement out there,even in the D community.Just once,though,I would like to hear a heartfelt
(without the addendum)That'd be awesome.I need to get there,for me.(D's can do anything except get a decent a1c?) I want that 6.9.
And I hope this will get me there.
