OMG I had a freaking TERRIBLE night, and consequently, terrible feeling day today. Let's go through the happenings, shall we?
1. 7 PM last night, decided, heck I want to make chebe bread buns and have REAL burgers. And sweet potatoes, all in ONE fantastic meal. Not bad for a Monday night, right? Wrooooonnng. I counted carbs meticulously, because that's what I have to do, and saw that I was going to eat exactly 132 grams of carb. Insulin pump told me to take 8.80 units of insulin for that much food, so I did.
2. Finished eating all this around 9:00. Did a little work here and there, 11:00 rolls around, I check my blood sugar. 230, not good, but I've seen worse after lower carb meals, so I just take some correction insulin, plus a little bit more for that handful of chocolate chips that I seem to crave before bed every night. I set a just-in-case alarm for 2 AM to check blood sugar again.
3. 2 AM rolls around, mouth is dry and I have to PEE: bad signs. Blood sugar was 541. FIVE HUNDRED AND FORTY ONE. Holy balls. Never seen that before.
4. Took 8.90 units to correct that high! So apparently, if I'm going to have more than 100g carbs at once (hint: I won't ever again!), I just need to double that freaking insulin. Or not sleep so I can keep checking the blood sugar.
5. Woke up at 6, checked it again. 360. Corrected again.
6. Woke up again at 7, checked it again. 130. Thank you Jeebus.
7. By 9:00, 64. Eat some dang carbs again.
8. By 11:00, 170. Take some dang insulin again.
9. By 2:00, 80 and dropping, eat some dang candy from coworker's desk.
10. By 5:00, 180. Take more #$%@$*& insulin!!! gaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I'm so frustrated. I KNEW it was a high carb meal, but I did my BBS workout the day before, and I typically NEED the extra carbs the next day (not 130g extra, but at least 60g extra, or else lows will be coming). I hate that I can't just relax EVER and I have to count carbs every single fucking day for the rest of my life if I want to keep my feet on my legs and my eyeballs in my head. 541. If I hadn't checked it when I did, I would have been in a coma by morning. fffffffffffff me.
