Have any of you had fits of OCD when trying to keep your sugars stable?
I was never too fond of testing frequently as a child and wanted to make myself believe I "knew my body". Obviously this didn't always work out too well.
Recently my sugars have been the best they've been in 15 years - since I was first diagnosed.
But while my sugars are great, my obsessive tendency to test myself to make sure I'm at a perfect level, is quite time consuming and expensive!
So how much is too much? Is it better to over-test than to under-test (hm sounds pretty obvious, no?) - but when does it get out of hand?
Do any of you have actual fears of high sugars? Like a sense of guilt when you have high sugars?
This is why I emphasize healthy eating and excercising. Mental health is important as well, but right now, I'd rather be safe than sorry!
