[IP] depressed ...
The first three weeks for me on the pump was a dream... But in the last two
weeks I've had more nightmares than dreams...
I had a sinus infection which I am sure was the cause of some highs... I had
an unexplained extremely high sugar one morning... I seem to keep getting
myself into trouble by temp-basaling or under bolusing for "future" exercise
and being high by the time we actually start hiking (indecisive and slow
(physically) friends don't seem to understand that my life requires *some*
planning)... these are "new" friends - I just moved. I know in time they'll
understand I would hope.
I am just so depressed that my meter average is HIGH again... it's like I am
right back where I started. My meter average right now is 211. A few weeks
ago it was 140. What the hell happened? I was dying to get an A1c
before... now I am dreading it - I know it'll be worse with all these severe
Last night I pigged out on snacks - I was kind of concerned about my sugar
level considering how much I ate. After about an hour after stopping
eating, I was 114. I decided to test a few hours later just in case (middle
of the night - I was actually concerned about getting low/overbolusing, not
high) - I was 211, gave a bolus and went back to sleep. I woke up at 491 -
the highest number I have EVER had in 17 years of diabetes. I just want to
scream (and cry). I had no ketones believe it or not - in fact with all
these high spikes to 300 and 400 I haven't had ketones yet.
My last unexplained high, michael or ted mentioned that I could have been
sleeping on the site in a way that inhibited absorption. What do others
think about this? In those first few weeks I wasn't using my behind and now
I use that all the time. Although I ate a lot of snack type foods last
night, it was very high fast-acting carbs. I could understand if I had
eaten pizza or something fattening or protein full - I don't necessarily
always sleep the same way. 491 floored me. Made my heart race as I
anxiously counted the seconds on a ketostik.
I know it is not the site because after I bolused my way down, I've remained
steady at 115 or so... I think I need to go to the gym and vent all of my
anger ;) Thanks for listening.
