I woke up in pain, and that has been creeping up on me for years now, pain I mean. I am not sure what is causing it, but so far it is manageable with Tylenol.

I would have been here sooner but my PC decided to zonk out on me and trying to read these forums on my phone is NOT fun.

I'm cranky this morning. It drives me crazy that my blood glucose numbers can be so amazing but my body still seems to love to throw glucose at me (dawn phenomenon) in the morning. I threw my meter this morning when I saw a fasting 114. To bring it into perspective though, a year ago or so, I would have love to see that fasting number.

Okay, fine, I will hush and make some KETO coffee.

Preach!

Like you, I'm usually seeing numbers that I could only have dreamed of not long ago. Still, I want them to be better and I believe I'm working in that direction -- but that morning reading so often generates a "What the *#&^???" response.

I've consoled myself by realizing my FBG reading usually is my high for the day. But, like you, I sure wish I could solve the dawn phenomenon issue...

It's the one thing that still drives me crazy.

Well if it makes y'all feel any better, if you did like me and worked some graveyard shifts, you would have some DDP (dawn and dusk phenomena).

Last night I was reminded that (for me) diabetes is a lot like alcoholism or really any addiction. I'm simply addicted to carbs. For an alcoholic, most have to never forget to continue to control it, one day at a time. They won't wake up one day and suddenly not be an alcoholic. They won't suddenly be cured.

Okay, let me back up for a minute.

When we have gone an extended period of time, it can be easy, without realizing it, to start slipping back, inch by inch. Yes, the KETO lifestyle has become so automatic for me that it isn't something I think about often anymore, but I can't let my REASON begin to fade away.

My daughter and I were driving back from the grocery store last night. As we passed the Chinese restaurant, we both remembered how often we used to eat there together. She mentioned she missed that place. I grinned and said, if I was ever going to plan a cheat meal, it wouldn't be there, it would be my favorite Louisiana catfish place.

Wait. What?

Had I been thinking about planning a cheat meal somewhere in the back of my mind without even realizing it? Where the heck did that come from? It took a bit before I realized that what we were really missing was the time (she is grown with a family of her own now) we used to spend together exploring different restaurants. I think we need to plan a special meal out together one night. A place we can enjoy a juicy steak and salad, and just spending time together.

Yeah, I am rambling but it was a wake up reminder for me...

It is OK to ramble, I find it to be humanizing in many ways. Let me see, Chinese, or catfish, or steak, those are good cheat options. Life sneaks up on you, and time runs out--- see if you can get her to go get catfish.

LOL, as far as catfish, that's just what I was thinking, but did not want to encourage a crave.

I've always thought if carbs are gonna kill me, it will be in the form of fried catfish. It is my only intentional cheat meal and I don't usually touch the sides, other than an onion slice, a few bites of tomato relish, and maybe one hush puppy.
