I know some of my posts can be a downer, but…here goes again:
At lunch yesterday I had a cup of soup with some oyster crackers and bolused my usual 6.5 units, but I had never had this soup before, had rice in it, which I don’t do well with. Two hours later 200, grrrr. Corrected and was fine when I got home and the rest of the night and this a.m. were well…very good, bgs wise.
Before lunch today I was 88, decided to have a cup of soup again and oyster crackers, but this soup was basically broth and a few noodles, hmmmm, 88, but went high yesterday at lunch, but…no rice, I will try 6 units, omg 1 hour later got blurred vision in one eye and very dry eyes (my new sypmtom for a low, dry eyes), I tested and was (laughing now), 88 but could not read my computer or see what I was writing. I have gotten this visual thing a few times in the last few years and it takes about 1/2 hour to get rid of, so I pretended to work, and could still not see, so of course I kept eating until I could see, just because I was in a WTF mindset. I tested and could barely make out where to put the blood and I think I was 95, but still suffering. Finally I could see, felt like crapola and tested again, lovely 202. Felt nauseated and drained, bolused 1.7 units, got home at 176 and thought crap should of done the 2 units, went to cut the lawn, in a nice cool breeze and in less than 1/2 hour front and back lawn cut, but starting to sweat in the nice cool fall breeze, knew my yard time was over, tested again and guess what I was the lovely 88 again, but knowing because of the sweating again, that I could move no more.
Moral of story, I hate this disease because:
–I cannot move when I want, because my bgs drops almost 100 points in 1/2 hour.
–No two days are alike.
–I feel nauseated and lose my vision when a normal person would not because they ate two different types of soups.
So for me if I don’t move and don’t eat, I am fine.
