I feel hot. Cheeks are stinging, palms are sweating. Usually that means that my blood sugar is high, but I just tested it at 151. A little high, but not enough that it should make me feel this way. Not even high enough that I'm going to correct for it unless it is still this high in a couple of hours.
Sometimes I think about what would have happened if I hadn't gotten insulin. If for some reason it had not been available. I wonder how long it would have taken for me to go into a coma, how long it would have taken to die. Would I have lived to turn 18?
Right after I was diagnosed I felt that the insulin was great for making me feel better, but I still would have been alive without it. Today, today I would be dead without it.
