The sickness created by D

Have you ever sat and wondered what it was like to live with Diabetes? I mean really live with it, the highs and lows. Well from the last few weeks I can most definitely tell you what the highs and lows do to your body. Imagine being on a non stop roller coaster ride, and not one of the fun ones either. You go up, stay up, then dive right back down only to go back up, and back down again. Ever since school started for at least more than half the day Clifford is running high. Now if you remember correctly his last A1c was 6.8%! He is not used to running high, especially not the high's we are seeing from school, 200, 300, 400+. One of which caused him to come home early, another of which caused him to have to sit out gym class. D is taking it's toll on his little body and there is nothing I can do about it right now, except rack my brains on exactly how to get through this. He runs high all day to come home and get back into a normal range then do it all over again the next day. It's making him feel sick to his stomach, giving him a constant headache, his eyes are burning, and he is very emotional. I just don't understand why he cannot catch a break for awhile at least. My wish and prayer for tonight is he get back into a normal, safe range, and be able to enjoy school, and not feel icky all day long. The constant up and down is beating him up, inside and out. It's basically like you or I going days on end without sleep then crashing from exhaustion. His body needs a break to rest up from this ride.
