So am I the only one that thinks, "oh I can do this." I was in range after lunch, went and taught my course, then stopped to do a couple errands (now 4 hours after lunch bolus). I was at the hardware store, not my most confident shopping, but come on...I was looking for a large container to put catfood in. The top on the container I was looking at seemed overly complex and when I needed the sales person to explain that it was for more permanent storage, I realized I had low blood sugar. So I left Ace and got in my car and we all know the correct action to take - test and treat. Nope. I figured I was just 2 minutes from the post office so I could go there and test and treat, then get my mail. I did this and I was 48. Next correct step: Get my mail, then wait in the car for a bit and test again before driving. Nope again. Figured I'm only 6 minutes from home (on a winding mountain road) so off I went. The sun seemed really distracting despite sunglasses and visor. I got home, tested and was 29!
I have no idea why I went down to 48 4 hours after bolusing, then down again to 29 after treating. But we all know *$%* happens. What I do know is I had no business being on the road even for 6 minutes at either number. So am I the only one who does this, tries to see if I can "beat the train"? Gee, sounds like a drunk slurring the words "I'm fine to drive."
