There was a water main break up the street from my apartment building about 3 days ago, and we were without water for over 2 days, so I defected to my dad’s house for a couple nights. I had planned on one night anyway as I had an early morning appointment on Monday, but then the water was still not repaired Monday afternoon/evening, so I went back to my dad’s. I really do sleep better there, so it’s good on many levels. I brought back water with me yesterday morning so the Cooper-dog and I could stay hydrated.
For some reason last night my blood pressure and blood sugar both started dropping at the same time. Oof, yuck. That was unpleasant. I was not happy. Or very functional. But I pushed the protein and water, and eventually both came up into acceptable range. Makes me grumpy. I refuse to call the doctor until the symptoms linger a long, long time... or drop into truly scary territory... the endocrinologist said that my blood sugar numbers WILL respond to the protocol... if I give it enough time. There has really been only one or two times they haven’t come up eventually. I just have to practice patience..: not my forte when I feel yucky... oh well.
