I just had a crazy day. After changing my insulin pump site last night, all was well and I woke up with a normal bg. I was in a rush and so made a quick veggie sandwich to get some carbs in before going to my active, physical job. I took my normal amount of insulin for this, not bothering to check my bg again since I’d just checked it an hour before and went to work.
I get to work and after an hour, felt funny. I check my bg again and it was 525!!! The highest it’s been since my diagnosis a year and a half ago. I had a coworker drive me home to change my pump site and saw a slight lowering in numbers. I went back to work.
I thought it would be fine but it just hovered at 340 for the rest of the 7 hour shift, no matter my corrections. I didn’t have a pen and have no prescription or money to purchase one.
I came home and changed both the site AND the insulin one last time. It’s finally back around 90-100.
In the mean time, while waiting for my bg to lower, my glucose meter battery died! I had to drive to the store and buy a battery. Just one emergency after another.
It was SUCH A SCARY DAY
Thanks, type1nation, for existing and letting me share my day with other people who might have had (but hopefully haven’t) crazy scary days like mine.
