Every morning since Monday I've woken up with a high blood sugar and I have no clue as to why.
It's weird, it's annoying and honestly, I JUST DON'T GET IT.
I've switched infusion sites, done correction boluses and still, I wake up with a blood sugar in the mid to high two hundreds.
I don't like starting my day with a high blood sugar (or a low blood sugar for that matter,) it pisses me off.
And don't even get me started on the whole "It feels like I'm walking through JELLO because I woke up with a high blood sugar," thing.
I've been plowing through the week at gangbusters speed and I haven't let it affect my work.
Because that's what PWDs do. We plough through the muck and shitstorm of curve balls that diabetes throws our way because we must. Sometimes we knock them out of the park, other times they stick around and taunt us from the sidelines.
And by lunchtime my blood sugars are back to normal, and by the end of the work day my blood sugars are downright text book, but I'm left feeling zonked.
At first I thought it was just a string of bitchy blood sugars - We've all dealt with diabetes being bitchy.... but now I think it's more - As in: Time to change my overnight basal rates.
My questions to you guys:
1. Can ones basal rate requirements change in the blink of an eye and out of the blue sans pregnancy or puberty?
And YES, I totally know that basal rates change - I get that - But this just seems freaking weird.
2. Have any of you out in the D blogosphere noticed a daily and or nightly trend in either direction re: your blood sugars that seemed to come out of nowhere - And did the trend stick?
3. Aslo: I AM TOTALLY GIVING DIABETES THE FINGER RIGHT NOW - WITH BOTH HANDS.
