Okay, so I'm mad. I remember, nearly twenty-two years ago the doctors telling my mom I "might get upset" about being diagnosed with diabetes. I recall my mom telling me to punch this furry, white pillow, (after injecting it with saline for practice) if I got mad. I never got mad back then. But now...now I'm mad.
Coffee makes my blood sugar rise. I have kind of known this for a while, but now I see it. I wake up at 5:15 every day, and drive up the great 405 for 18 miles to do without COFFEE? Grrrrrr! Will it ever end?
I am so frustrated, I just want to give up food altogether. Everything I put in my mouth is like poison! First I'm a kid who can't eat candy, now I'm an adult who can't have coffee? What did I do in my past life to warrant this suffering!?
Any other type 1s experience blood sugar spikes after coffee? Today I went from 98 to 270 in about 3 hours. This was without carbs!
