No, not the name of my new favorite band. Both things I'm dealing with today. Had to go to the walk in clinic (docs office was closed) and it turns out I have pink eye. Though it's so bad one should really call it OH MY GOD WHAT THE @#$% HAPPENED TO YOUR EYE eye. So, after karate and doctors I was starved and over did it at dinner with mint chocolate chip for desert. So now I'm slowly waiting for the high to correct itself (225 grrr I LOATHE getting anywhere over 180).

Hoping it's down by this morning, and that you still think it was bolus-worthy ;)

When I finally got my BG under control, there were some definite changes in my health. You mentioned one: pink eye. I was getting pink eye an average of once a month - which stopped almost instantly when my A1C dropped under 9.0 (I started at over 15 with my reading @ 853 at the time I was dx'ed). It makes me wonder what other health conditions out there are really just D or BG related.
