Manic Monday: Moving Day!

I have had the craziest August.

This weekend, I spent all my free time packing and moving my stuff back into my parent's house. Thank god they're alive and will let me move back in with them Otherwise, I'd be on the street (and without health insurance).

While I am still very angry about how the whole situation went down (out of personal respect for my former roommates, I'll leave out the gory details, but it was NOT a good situation), I am actually OK (so far) with the prospect of living with my parents and driving an hour each way to get to school. Benifit: I get to live in my favorite city, Springfield, MO. I LOVE YOU SPRINGFIELD. It contains people and places I love and I will never be bored while living at home. My parents are so entertaining, and I have done a decent job of keeping up with people since I left for college, so I still have many friends and acquaintances there.

I never really enjoyed Joplin, but I stayed because I fell in love with the school. I don't know what it is about Missouri Southern. It is a smallish, D-2 school. I like it because the teachers have been wonderful. I feel like many of my teachers deserve bigger schools with bigger salaries and bigger research gigs. I get the benefits of going to a state four-year university (and the state school with the cheapest tuition in Missouri!) but the small class sizes of a small school. No 500 student general psych classes for me! (Well, my general psych class was online, so it didn't really matter, but I digress.)

What I'm saying here is, this weekend has been a blur. I actually haven't showered. (EW, TMI!) Yesterday, my blood glucose spent the whole day in the uppper 200's to 300's, except once around dinner when it crashed to 50, and then I way (way) over corrected and wound up at 394. OUCH!

I guess I've learned that when other things are stressing you out, you can't let the BG's stress you out on top of it all. It's just not worth it. I'll accept my morning reading of 196. Funny, that's lower than most mornings.

    I lived in St. Charles back when, for 3 months, I Love MO. ;-)

    Yeah, the stress that causes the upped blood sugars....vicious cycle. It's a process, learning to "deal" with it. You're doing just fine.
