RE: [IPk] hi carb meal/wrong bolus/where did i go wrong?

Hi Melissa
 Sorry, maybe I was being a bit dramatic so when I say "panic" I did a little
bit and I think YIKESS!!! Probably more apt as at 7.4 seeing active of 5.8 I did
think oh oh await the BIG crash which is why I kept testing about every 20 mins,
just to monitor so I don't think (hope) it was the adrenalin/panic rush

 On a separate note, this is where my now ILLUMINATED contour next is so great
as I can at least SEE in the cinema/theatre what my BGs were doing (I always had
to hoike pump out of bra, turn on the light, shine on finger to check blood
coming out, shine on meter to check strip in right way, then check to see it. At
least now the contour is lit up. hurrah

Hi Clare

 You mentioned feeling panic-stricken in the cinema....could you have had an
adrenaline rush that drove your glucose levels up on top of where the naan would
have taken you?
