This is kinda funny, (maybe?)...but just wanted to get maybe some feedback. I've had nothing but high blood sugars for weeks now. trying everything, never had numbers this high for so long with no relief. lowest numbers, with tons of novolog, hourly corrections sometimes, hovering around 160's (oh, will I ever see another double digit number again, 'sigh')...220's at bed, relentless. MY BASAL IS OFF, keeping trying to add, adjust (holding off on pump right now too). So, finally after another week of this, I called my Endo's office and he asked me to come in yesterday to try and partner through this. Ketones all week long too; no food, losing weight..feeling AWFUL..WHY WON'T MY BLOOD SUGARS COME DOWN, what have I done wrong..ugh, new vials, new insulin, more..no food, nothing working..help! ugh!
So, I get to his office yesterday, already fighting with another night of high BG's, tired, frustrated, pissed off with myself, he walks in and I start to cry...feeling drained and I start verbally throwing my numbers at him, my logs, hoping for his skilled, trained eyes to find the 'answer', "Did you see my meter, my numbers (he runs it every time)...i can't get my blood sugars to come down..look at this - look how MUCH insulin I'm taking, blah, blah, blah." He looks at me, first with compassion, concern then he says, "You're throwing SO much (insert F BOMB) data at me I'm not going to be able to just (F BOMB'ing) figure this out." I threw one back myself (ha!)...and we kind of ping ponged back and forth like this for a few minutes, he knew my frustrations, I could hear his too. Anyway, I was kind of shocked. I'm not a passive person but it kinda blew me away. He spent a lot of time, advised me, again, on how we're gonna work through this. Yeah..OK..but how would you feel about this?
