My GD Journey
I got diagnosed yesterday with GD, and started taking my blood sugar yesterday afternoon. After sticking myself about 12 times and either not getting enough blood or doing it when the machine wasn't ready I broke down and cried like a baby for about an hour. But after that I sucked it up, got the reading, and went on to get my second and last one of the night without too much problem. It's really not as bad as I thought it would be, but it definitely sucks having to pay for each meal I eat with blood. I'm just glad that my numbers have been good so far. My fasting number yesterday was 96, so one point high, but my after dinner number was only 104! This morning my fasting number was 91. I'm feeling pretty good about this. If my numbers look good for the next 2 weeks I get to only test twice a day instead of 4 times.
