Hey, did you happen to get the license plate of the truck that ran over me??
But seriously, my high blood sugar mystery has been solved. Friday night I slept like a log. And I saw better post exercise numbers on Saturday. But on Sunday, I actually did feel like a splattered mass of road kill! I had a sore throat, a queasy stomach, aches, chills and general ickies.
And my numbers? I’ve seen more readings in the 200s and 300s in the past five days than I’ve seen in the past five months! I tried to be proactive and cranked my basal up to 150% but even that wasn’t working. No matter what I eat, my CGM immediately starts yelping and giving me double up arrows. It’s enough to drive a girl insane!! I went through an entire box of tissues yesterday and I have the bright red nose to prove it. What? Did you say something? I can’t hear you because my ears are so plugged up.
Luckily, I’m feeling quite a bit better today. And although I’m still hitting the 200s more often than I’d like, I haven’t seen a 300 since Sunday.
Diabetes is hard enough on it’s own. When you add Real People Sick to the mix, it just turns you into road kill!!
