So I am taking the GRE's (graduate requirement exam) tomorrow, it is the second time I've taken them. Unfortunately, due to changing plans, I did not have the time to get medical clearance (which takes about 3 months), so I have to take them like a normal person. I know how this works:

I can't take my meter.

I can't take juice.

I have to hide my pump.

I pray that I don't get too high or low.

As if I don't have enough to worry about tomorrow....

Last time I took them, I tested during the break, and my bloodsugar was over 500 (stress). I amazed I got over 1100 with that kind of reading. And yet I am putting myself through it again.

Well, technically November, but my advisor thinks my first scores will be good enough for a few programs. It's just really frustrating, my bloodsugar was in the 300's during the exam.
