Iâ€™ve always struggled to explain what high blood sugars actually feels like. Thereâ€™s different levels to it. At first you just feel heavy, under your skin. You then get that feeling of lactic acid, but more like of you were to tense your muscles really hard, edging to the point of causing a cramp, but constant. Then comes the sharp headaches, when youâ€™re really high, they almost paralyse you. Iâ€™ve been taken to the floor before in sheer pain I thought I was having a brain aneurism, but it was moving all over, under my skin. My pain levels are very high, but the times thatâ€™s happened, itâ€™s horrific. #type1#type1diabetic#type1diabetes#t1d#diabetic#diabetes#bluenovember#diabetesawareness#diabetesawarenessmonth#bluenovemberđź’™
Taken the nephew to try PSVR. I played Superhot and heâ€™s playing GT Sport. Iâ€™m impressed with it!
Need to reload my nighttime low box. Thereâ€™s a certain annoyance to waking up at 3am and having a low. The last thing you want to do is head downstairs in the dark and find food to get your sugars up. So I have this box fitted for three nighttime lows. The small boxes contains four jelly babies and the bag has six digestive biscuits (two per low). So all I need do is wake up, have a box of jelly babies and have two biscuits. Despite this, Iâ€™ll probably head downstairs for milk as my mouth will be dry and Iâ€™ll still feel like crap in the morning! #type1#type1diabetic#type1diabetes#t1d#diabetic#diabetes#bluenovember#diabetesawareness#diabetesawarenessmonth#bluenovemberđź’™
I love lazing at home playing video games. Iâ€™m somewhat healthy, I try and go to the gym when I can and I eat fairly healthy (not â€śdietâ€ť healthy, which 90% of it is bull). Some may see my video game lifestyle as s possible reason why Iâ€™m diabetic. Many people think diabetes is directly related to being overweight; this is not true for type 1 or type 2. Closest thing true to that is being overweight may increase likelihood of type 2 diabetes, but itâ€™s not a deciding factor. In fact most people with type 2 arenâ€™t overweight and most overweight donâ€™t develop it (I think thatâ€™s source from Diabetes UK, but I can fact check if anybody queries that). With regards to my diabetes, type 1, itâ€™s most likely caused by genetics and unknown factors. Anybody can develop it at any time but type 1 is most likely to occur at development stages in life. So, if somebody has diabetes, youâ€™ll be mostly wrong to assume itâ€™s their lifestyle. Actually, I found out recently thereâ€™s a whole host of body building groups that are made up of type 1 and 2 diabetics, so healthy people can be diabetic! #type1#type1diabetic#type1diabetes#t1d#diabetic#diabetes#bluenovember#diabetesawareness#diabetesawarenessmonth#bluenovemberđź’™
Yesterday my nan hit 80. A brave Irish gal who proved her worth by making a speech in the middle of the Denmark Vs. Ireland match last night! Fun fact, she used to do my insulin injections like throwing a dart. Love her.
