30 Days With Diabetes: Blood Sugar Mayhem

Last night, I received an impromptu invite to see Patton Oswalt at the Kennedy Center. I thought, sure, why not? Even with the torrential downpour, who can pass up a free comedy show? (The show was great, by the way.) But as a result, I didn’t have time to eat a proper dinner. And the night that ensued with my blood sugar was tumultuous at best. See for yourself.

Even though I’ve been living with Type 1 diabetes for nine years, it still takes me by surprise. Needless to say, I woke up this morning exhausted and not 100 percent functional. But now I know – never eat sugary foods on an empty stomach (unless my blood sugar is actually dropping). My body will always swipe left.
