After writing yesterday's post, I sat down and came up with a very specific, very detailed three-day meal plan to enact some things I've been wanting to try, like moving my daily veggies to lunch so I'm getting mostly protein for dinner, and then I went grocery shopping. Didn't have a very good day emotionally but did have a good day as far as sticking to my plan/schedule.

I also decided to take myself back down to 14 units of insulin, because when I was on 14 units I got the best results even though they weren't perfect because I was still figuring out some diet stuff. I decided to do this because, as I mentioned yesterday, I've been reading about rebound highs and how your number can be high in the morning if your sugar drops too low during the night.

So the main things were: Mostly protein for dinner. 14 units of insulin.

...

My number this morning was fucking perfect.

Obviously this was just one day so it could have been a fluke or whatever re: the protein thing, but I definitely don't think it's a coincidence that I haven't gotten a single good number with 18 units of insulin and going back down to 14 immediately made an improvement. Liiiike I'm not about to give up on doctors entirely or whatever but come the fuck on!!!!!




Anyway so I'm feeling very accomplished this morning as I sip my coffee, and in a few hours I have an ultrasound so I get to see Lentl today, and even if I have another bad number tomorrow, I will know that I've made some kind of progress and this whole stupid thing isn't as hopeless as it has seemed for weeks.
