high blood sugar, stuck in traffic

I’ve woken up with a blood sugar over 250 all week. It could be a number of reasons.

1. My bottle of Lantus is more than halfway gone…

2. I’m getting sick?

3. Pizza for dinner on Thursday…but what about the rest of the week?

I’m stumped. I don’t feel great but I also don’t feel terrible, a little stomach bug maybe. But it’s been soooo hard to get out of bed every day with high blood sugar. I drag myself out from under the covers and shuffle to the kitchen in my slippers like an old man and I hope for a good reading but I know it’s going to be bad again. And there it is, 275! ugh. It’s starting the day with a bad grade, a rejection, a negative. I try to complain to my husband but he doesn’t know what it’s like to feel this way. Thankfully I can call my sister and she does understand and she can make me feel better because it happens to her too, so I am not as alone as I feel.

I increase my Lantus again, give a big dose of humulog and eat a cup of yogurt and walnuts for breakfast. All day my sugars are high and I’m tired and grouchy with the boys and I can’t eat anything, food is my enemy today.

The problem started on Saturday, and by Wednesday I was back to normal. Well, actually, I was low all day Wednesday and hopefully today my blood sugar will have leveled off. Did I have some kind of a virus? I don’t know. It’s like being stuck in traffic and craning your neck up the highway to see what’s wrong, and after a while, a few miles, speeding up again without ever seeing an accident or a construction site, without ever knowing what slowed you down in the first place. I’m just happy to be moving along again.

One thought on “high blood sugar, stuck in traffic

  1. I was going to ask you if you were on shots or pump. Anyway, I know how you feel, although I tend to wake up on the low side. But if I’m high when I wake up, it’s MISERABLE getting out of bed. I definitely drag the entire day. And yeah, sometimes the absoption’s off or you get a bad site or there’s some hormonal weirdness going on and it just makes no sense.
    I’m glad you’re feeling better though.
