It was day 5, and I was sleepy. Not just tired, but really actually I-could-fall-asleep-right-now sleepy. At times, when I get up in the morning, and I’m going about my routine in my room, it is hard to resist the pull of my comfy, cozy, warm from sleep bed, but when I leave for the day, the temptation to crawl under the covers diminishes. Out of sight out of mind, so to speak. Yesterday, doing yoga felt like going through my whole day with my bed in the room. The urge to lie down on my mat and close my eyes was nearly unbeatable.

Luckily I only fell asleep once… just for a second.

My blood sugars have been crazy high lately, and it has contributed a lot to my sleepiness and my feeling dehydrated (being dehydrated). I usually have problems with lows during my challenges, so I’m not really sure what is going on. With this new fangled insulin pump I have, everything is different. I’m so scared of getting low blood sugars, that I think I am compensating by under-dosing myself during meals and to treat my highs. My crashes are so dramatic when I do get low, I don’t want to find out what happens when I pass out in class and get taken away in an ambulance. Too scary.

Groggily yours,
