Stress Shouldn’t Be Part of Every Day

Woman smiling at the camera¡Hola, amorcitos!

The other day I had to go to the doctor for my check-up. Siempre me pongo nerviosa cuando tiene que ver con la doctora. I think it’s normal. At least, that’s what I tell myself.

Anyway, I was having a headache and slightly tired when the nurse asked me how I was doing that day. I told her and said, “Creo que es por estrés que tengo de trabajo y cosas así.” She waved it off and said, “Todos tenemos estrés de algo.”

It wasn’t a big deal to her, but it was a big deal to me. Stress manifests itself in different ways and although there’s nothing definitive on this it might help high cholesterol and high blood pressure go higher! Y eso, amorcitos, no es bueno, especialmente cuando tienes la diabetes. In addition, studies have shown that stress may change the way blog actually clots, which can increase a chance of a heart attack. All you need is one.

Because people get stressed, they might not eat well or exercise either. This, con la gente con diabetes, causa que se sube la glucosa de la sangre. You don’t want your blood sugars to go up because that just means you’re not taking care of yourself.
