Completely wigged out tonight. Had a long day at work. For some reason I have become the recreation director and am obliged to create "events." It is supposed to be an HR function, but no one helps. I hate it.
Anyway, started as a good BG day--85 at wake up and 95 at kunch. Because the event was a salad potluck, I had some hits of green--no dressing, no pasta salad ot potato salad. Still took 1.5 units because lettuce sometimes has more "carbs" than I think. Kind of forgot about it. Checked BG before driving (3:15) and was 114. At 5:30 checked again--was 203!!!!!
I completely freaked out. Must have cried for an hour. (I ironed and cried--at least I did something constructive.) Completely freaked my husband out. Once I calmed down I changed my infusion set--new bottle of insulin, etc. I am hungry (not much to eat today) but afraid to eat. Oh my! After 2 hours since correction, am still 156.
Just read Sagabetes post. I understand. So hard sometimes--and who understands it besides you (and if lucky your significant other)?
