Almost There!

Just in case you haven't been paying attention....

5 MORE DAYS!!!!!!!

I'm excited, can you tell? Have you bought my cheesy, flashy and brightly colored 21st birthday card/e-card yet?

Everything is great except that I am *still* sick and it's starting to really piss me off. I haven't gotten my usual eight-hours of uninterrupted sleep since Friday night! I keep waking up at 5 a.m. with a pounding headache, unable to breathe properly, and searching my room for lozenges as I swallow what feels like tiny rocks that scrape the sides of my throat.

But Mumzie made a doctor's appointment for me, so hopefully they will give me some antibiotics and I can finally feel like a normal human being again (or at least as normal as I'll ever be).

I also feel like I'm losing my voice and I had to interview Pratt Rather from Team Type 1 this morning. The interview was great, but I sounded horrible! My blood sugars are also horrible. I have my basal rate set to 200%. 200%!!! And my blood sugar right now is 296. Oy. As if being sick wasn't bad enough.

At least this is the one time I can be high and not feel guilty about it. Because it's not my fault!

But being high for a week is bad. This is not going to help my A1C any. This sucks. I want to be better.

I hope I am better by Sunday. It would really suck to be sick on my 21st birthday.

Did something go wonky with your site? When I click on the link, it brings me to an index page. Weirdness.

Get better. You shouldn't be sick for your 21st.

My site? Which one? This is me, Julia, the word "site" could mean just about anything. Including my pump site, which is initially what I thought you were asking. I was going to say "No, I did change my site and I'm still high." But then I read the next sentence and realized you were talking about a website.

Oops. God, I am such a diabetic.
