zoe, i dont function without a hearty breakfast. and as far as Peeing goes, well thats about 30% of my life, awake or asleep (i do walk in my sleep)
I was starting to think I was the only one who eats breakfast! I never leave the house without it and am quite fond of breakfast (despite the limitation on options since my dx). Some people can't start the day without a shower, I can't start it without breakfast....and cappuccino of course!
That was like me after breakfast today, I tested at 17.1 (308 mg/dl) and did a double take when my pump recommended a 7.25 unit correction. That is a lot of insulin just for a correction, but took it ... and ended up correcting again two hours later when I was still 13.5 (243 mg/dl). It wasn't a bad site, not sure what it was! At lunch I was 5.1 (92 mg/dl), after lunch I was 6.0 (108 mg/dl), and before dinner I was 3.1 (56 mg/dl), so I give up.
Anyway, what I do in the morning is:
1. Turn off my alarm.
2. Go pee.
3. Test and bolus a correction/for breakfast.
4. Make coffee.
5. Have a shower.
6. Get dressed.
7. Eat breakfast.
8. Check e-mail, work on my thesis, check social media, etc.
9. Pack lunch.

5. Check Facebook.
6. Take morning med
