A Diabetic HIGH!
I am a Type-2 Diabetic and there are many of us going through our daily lives trying to control the vagaries if this insidious disease.
We’re right there , probably sitting in that cubicle beside you, trying to get through our day, as our pancreas/Liver/ whatever else swing through their daily jobs and swing my Insulin level (Blood Sugar) up and down, as they see fit.
You may think I’m just a strange co-worker; maybe I act grumpy for a while and then a few hours later, I’m leaning over your cubicle wall telling you a stupid joke, and then maybe an hour or so later you may walk by my cubicle and you notice I’m just staring out into space.
Well, guess what? I’m a Diabetic and these actions are common symptoms of being Diabetic.
Below is a short rant of mine that I wrote a few months ago after I heard a supposed friend talking about how crazy I acted at times.
So here’s a little Crazy Diabetics Story about Living with this disease.
There’s nothing like a Diabetes HIGH!
One minute I’m working away on a project on my computer,
and the next, I realize that I’ve stopped writing
and I find that I’m staring out the window,
my MIND is BLANK,
there’s nothing churning in the gray matter at all.
Then, realizing what my problem may be,
I make a quick check of my blood sugar
and there it is, a reading of
167 and that’s fifty points higher than my normal level!
I quickly stand up and walk somewhere, anywhere,
hoping to make my body react to the change in my actions
and function differently for me.
I need this change to occur so I that will not be forced to eat a snack,
just to kick my organs into action as it processes the food..
I’m experienced at this, you see,, and I know that,
for the moment and until something changes;
All I can do is ride the High like it’s a Wild Horse until it drops.
