Recently a coworker was questioning why I still call myself sleep deprived. After 3 years of Diabetes I should have Maddison "all figured out" right? Truth is, lately I lack the ability to even find my words. I'm stuck in the sleep deprivation haze. One night Maddison will be low. The next night she's high. I awoke several times last week trembling in a pool of sweat with my own BS under 50. Of course, highs followed my lows too. Its draining. Last week I took two days off work so I could sleep a straight 4 hours from 9am until 1pm. Sleeping in the afternoon while the kids are at school. It was my last resort. Something I had to do. Diabetes is kicking me to the curb lately, both Madison's and my own. So the answer is, even though you may figure out Diabetes today, tomorrow is a new day with entirely new rules.
Read AMY's blog about sleep deprivation. Her G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S baby girl was dx'd with T1 at the age of 9 months. I can only imagine. She also designs, makes and sells the CUTEST pump packs! Tonight Amy had the words I wish I could find when trying to explain WHY T1 parents suffer from the sleep deprivation haze........
