I'm pretty stressed at the moment.  I am in the middle of selling my house and organising the move a new place.  I know the stress will pass but I'm interested in how it may affect my system.  To that end, I am testing a little more than usual.  My doctor has told me that I only need to test a few times a week.  I think, however, that it might be a little more instructive to test more often and mark down not only the scores, but how I am feeling etc. at and around the time of the test.  The World Cup isn't helping as my sleeping patterns are out the window too!  Here in Perth (Australia) the games are on at 9pm, midnight and 3 am.  I tested this morning before breakfast and scored 5.7 (103), which is a little high, considering it was a fasting score.  It is not my intention to examine this in great detail, but I'll let you know if something unusual crops up (England or Australia winning the World Cup would be such an instance!).

Brian,
You are waaaaaay funny! I admire your attention to detail and am at a loss to understand why men get all buzzed over boat races, car races and football.... Sports in general... hmmm. Of course I imagine you think women are silly to get all excited about a shoe sale so it's probably the same thing...

Good luck with the move. And I hope your boat wins....

Hi again folks.  Well, I've completed my house move and man, was that stressful.  My diet was pretty poor for that period and I didn't get a great deal of exercise.  I didn't however put any weight on and averaged out at 5.9 (106).  I'm seeing my doctor next week and will be very interested to see how my A1c test comes back.  Aren't there home testing kits for that in the US?

Yes, Brian, they have just been introduced. I don't have one because I test every day and am pretty much in line. Sorry to be such a dumb girl about sports.. Didn't even know what the World Cup was until I saw it on tv... It's soccer, right? Good to hear from you again. Take care.
