Ok, see how the oatmeal works. One thing that might help the morning fasting to be a little higher is to eat something small at night before you go to sleep. Maybe try some unsweetened yogurt, or some peanut butter and a slice or two of an apple. I wouldn't suggest an entire apple yet. Or the apple slices with a couple of slices of cheese. Try that and see how your reading is in the morning.
And, try to stay in the moment and concentrate on what your day's schedule is: your child, work, some errands, some tasks, etc. and try not to think about
how you're afraid of what your blood sugar is going to do. Can you get in some walking around outside or biking or playing a game with your child or a pet if you have one? Make a list of things you need to do or a shopping list, maybe some activities you'd like to do and so on and try to go about
your day without worrying about
the blood sugar while still keeping to your eating plan. Maybe this will help getting out of this cycle.
And keep a daily journal: blood sugar and time, what and when you eat, blood sugar before and about
2 hours after eating, any activities. This will help you and the doctor see this part of your life.
If you are taking ANY medication, whether prescribed or supplements, also write that down. Sometimes the side effects of these can be a problem. I'm trying to think of everything.....
I hope your day goes well!
