I woke up today with FBS 84... I had 1 cup cereal milk drink (19g carbohydrates), 4 pcs of crackers (16g carbohydrates, 2g sugar) and half a slice of hotdog for breakfast, then take my dose of metformin.... after 2 hours, I was feeling funny, I thought I was low... check my BG, BAM! 208... wondering what happen there... because this is not the first time that I had eaten the same food... usually after 2 hours, it will be 90 up to 134 only, it was written on my logbook.

Out of shock... Man! you should see me panic! I thought my heart will fall out, I call my husband "Pa, follow me"...and I ran out of the room to the terrace, my husband is behind me, I felt my face is numbing. my husband was telling me to relax while massaging my back lightly... In times like this I find it the hardest to relax, crazy thing is running on my mind, but I am trying... I stared at the trees... ahhh green... hmmm... blurry green... my cousin followed us and asked me, "what's happening"... I said.. "panic attacks"... and he said jokingly... "why do you let Panic, attacks you?"... got me into thinking...well, he got a point... we laughed...

The last time I had a 200 or plus BG was February 17, 2008, a day before my birthday, I know that was stress related, because at that time I was furious with someone...

I've been very picky with what I eat, I can't afford to have a complication since you know how hard life is... though keeping it in a normal readings is a daily workout but I'm trying my very best to attain it.

After feeling relaxed, I drank water successively (up to 1 liter) and after an hour my BG was down to 105... and another 30 minutes passed it's down to 76...

Then lunch time, I had fish and 11/4 cup of rice rice, no metformin for lunch... after 2 hours my BG was 128.. What the ???, this morning I ate light and had metformin but BG shoot up like crazy and at lunch time I had over a cup of rice, no meds but BG is good.. crazy isn't it???

Hope it will stay ok for the rest of the day...

CONTINUATION.....

This is just a continuation of my blog this morning... . my afternoon went well, though I did not take metformin after lunch, it went down dramatically, I took lunch at 2pm... 2 hours after lunch my BG was 128... at 6:30pm my BG was 87...

I ate dinner at 7:30pm... 2 hours after dinner, I felt the funny feeling again, check my BG, BAM! 199, what a day!!!... As I am typing this I am waiting for it to come down(drinking a lot of water)... Let's see what's the reading after 30 minutes (before clicking the publish post button)

30 minutes passed, 152... I know it's coming down... {{{sigh}}}, what a day! really, this is the first time that I have super high readings twice in a day... indeed, there's always a first time...

so, I have to change my previous blog title to what a day! LOL

wow, what a morning. not the kind of way to get your motor running, so to speak. i'm glad that you had your husband and cousin there to help with your panic attack. my toes start to tingle when my sugar goes high. my family call me the tingle toe lady. i guess we all have different ways of knowing when our sugar goes high. i hope you can stay calm and have a better rest of the day.

yes you are all right guys... :-)

{{{Debb}}}: it's a good thing my husband and cousin was there to support me, they were able to divert my attention to something and after that I just laugh at the whole thing, especially when I remember how I look when I was panicking and running... and yes, today is a better day...

{{{DiabeticizME}}} : It's indeed a high day for me, but it's also a revelation that meaning my body is not used to high numbers that I was able to feel it when it shoots up... ;-)

{{{Cathy}}} today, my numbers are ok FBS 89... 2 hours after breakfast BG155 (160 below is my aim) and I hope it will stay ok the whole day...

{{{Robert}}} hi robert, i am really happy for you you had a wonderful vacation... you need that break... and you still need to feed me about your fun fun fun experience there plus more... LOL,
I had a goodnight sleep last night (thanks God), I was able to have 7 and half hour of sleep that keeps me going today... yes... just living... one day at a time... :-)

Thanks for the comments... Be well...
