A1c sads.

I have the sads.

I’ve been trying really hard to get my A1c down to a “Conception happy” range (6.0-7.0 or lower).  This has been my focus for the past 6 months or so and until now I’ve been making slow, but steady, progress.  *HIGH FIVE* to me!  “It’s a marathon, not a sprint”, “Slow and steady wins the race”, all that fun stuff, right?

In June of last year I started with a new doctor and an A1c of 8.7, by September it had dropped to 8.2, and I started the year off in January with a 7.8.  Go team!  I was especially happy with that January number as I got married and subsequently ate my face off on our honeymoon.  Whoops.  Honeymoons happen.  I’ve also been on a “Pump Vacation” for the past 8 months, and until today it seemed to be helping my number.

Today’s A1c…7.9.  :sadface:  Doc and I discussed and he’s happy that I’m steady, but we both agree that I need to be steady at about 6.9.  A few tweaks were made to my insulin to carb ratios – yay more math brain exercises for me!  (All diabetics should be handed an honorary math degree on date of diagnosis, don’t you agree?).  Doc and I feel that with my new CGM and going back on the pump in a few weeks, my next appointment will be happy once again.

If only every day could be like today:

How you like me now, A1c?

Until I reach that elusive 6.5-ish, I will remember:

“Every Strike brings me closer to the next home run”.

I’m gonna hit this puppy outta the park.
