Self-regulation

It’s funny, I tested myself when I got up this morning, at around 7:30. 9.8, about average. I made myself a cup of tea but didn’t have any breakfast yet. Because my sugar wasn’t overly high, I didn’t take my insulin just yet.

One thing happened after another, and before I knew it, it was 10:30am. Out of interest, I tested myself again. 9.2. I’d had nothing in between apart from that cup of tea, and there’s very little carb in that.

I mean, I’m wary of reading too much into decimal places, but possibly this gives an indication of how well (i.e. badly) I’m able to regulate my own sugar level.
