…with my own process, rules, protocols, etc. for managing my diabetes. I really went off the wagon last night (don’t ask why, it’s personal). Ran 250-300 all night from about midnight until I woke up at six.
Did an IM injection of a boatload of insulin, around 6:15. BG has just now made it down to 150, I’m doing another IM to correct again and get it into normal in the next few hours.
Main problem, though, is Pinky and the Brain (well, actually just THE BRAIN) does not like bathing in syrup all night, and then have it taken away so quickly. Braino would like to ease off that glucose over, say, a day or two. Taking it away over 6 hours or so makes it mad, and when Braino gets mad, Dave feels bad!
I’m basically worthless today. Light-headed, dizzy, digestive problems, feeling drugged. 'Been through this before, I know it’ll just about have cleared up, oh, about bedtime.
I’ll be a very good boy today and tonight. Problem yesterday was a really bad day, and a large Papa Murphy’s thin crust Chicken and Garlic pizza in the oven. I ate the whole thing. No amount of correct bolusing helped. I still went through the BG roof.
Sigh… just another reminder that, no matter what, no matter how good the tools, technology, protocols, diligence, etc., I am still a diabetic. I can’t get away from it. It’s gonna bite me now and then, no matter what I do.
(BTW, I chose “Other Conditions” for the category for this discussion, as I consider stupidity to be an “other condition” :D)
