The tital pretty much sums it up. I ate dinner around 7:30 then at aprox. 9:45 I thought about it that my pumps 2 hour bg reminder should maybe have already gone or be going off around then. I checked my pump and saw there was no bolus given at dinner time and tested at once. A reading of 416 confirmed it. I had forgotted to bolus. I most times wait till after I ate so I know better how much I ate but just totally forgot to do it tonight. I’m feeling kinda dumb about it all even though my family said it was just a mistake that I can learn from so I was just wondering if anyone else ever did this or if its just me?
I have done it. a few times actually, the first time I did it was when I ate popcorn once. another time it was when I had breakfast.
the time I forgot to bolus for the popcorn, when I did finally check my blood It read HI. I was so shocked that I immediately took like 10 units of insulin via a syringe. then kept a close eye on my numbers. after 2 hours it went down to 200 something.
the time I forgot to bolus for breakfast I checked 2 hours later and it was only 290 something. I was lucky that time.
many of us have done it–and some of us (she sheepishly grins) have done it more than a few times…my biggest time to miss is lun ch at work–very easy to get distracted
Oh yes…I have done it quite a few times. Sometimes you just forget…Human.
Been there. Also forgot to take my bedtime Levemir a couple of times–oops. You’re not alone in forgetting & feeling dumb about it.
Your family’s right. Just a mistake & move forward.
Don’t beat yourself up Leanna, I’ve done it (quite alot :oS) Life gets in the way sometimes, brain fog… distractions. So easily done x x x
I used to do this ALLLLL the time. I’ve gotten a lot better, now it’s just eeevery once in a while. Don’t feel too bad about it. Sometimes our brains must just say, “NOPE I’m not going to be a pancreas right now, I need a break!”
Thanks everyone Hearing from other that did the same thing helps alot
Yeah, it’s just you.
No, I’m kidding. Of course, I’ve done it. More than once. It happens because we’re hungry or in a hurry or distracted in some way. Sometimes we think we DID give a bolus but . . . no.
So just use it as a lesson and a reminder for your next bolus.
P.S. No, really, it never happened to anyone else.
P.P.S. Kidding again.
I have been there and done that. It is so easy to forget at times. Don’t beat yourself up. It happens to the best of us. I have forgotten at all meal sittings, so I don’t have one time frame that I usually forget. It is called life’s distractions.
Thanks you guys Glad to hear I’m not alone!!!
