Re: [IP] Recording your boluses and BG's

I keep my early logs to remind myself just how awful uncontrolled
diabetes can be. Also to remind myself that I CAN'T use orals.

I have a tendency to deny my diabetes big time at times, and I really
want to believe it went away while I wasn't looking.

I need to remember those days of never seeing a BG below 150 at any time
and seeing highs in the 300's. I need to remember swallowing all those
pills and not seeing the numbers budge at all, but just continue to go
up. And I need to remember that I might be able to go a short time
without insulin (because I still do have significant residual beta cell
function), but inexorably, it WILL get worse!
