Ah yes, as always, just when I thought I had some control I get yanked back into the dia-frustration! Holly crap! Last Friday was a really good day until I posted about it. Then all hell broke loose straight across the weekend. My bg's were all over the place. From 400 to 50...all within 15 minutes without warning.
I had gone to Walmart with Morgan and my bg reading was 285. Thinking that I didn't have to worry about another low...for at least a few hours....I set out to get what was on my list (and, of course, something for Morgan as is always the deal). I was making headway and was close to being finished when I started to feel "sick". Thinking it had not been more than an hour since being around 285, that they was no chance of it being a low, I checked Dexter......I was at 70. Crap! I figured that I better also check my meter reading (just in case Dexter was inaccurate) and I was really at 56!!!!! Holly Bat-Crap!!!!!!
So now I'm standing there (in a fog) trying to decide what I should immediately rip open and devour.....juice???.......candy???.... cookies???? Then I thought of Milano cookies, found a bag and began to shove one cookie after another into my mouth, not even getting a glimps of the chocolatey goodness. Panic had taken over and a very nervous Morgan began his constant questioning (his nervous reaction when I'm looking like a crazed diabetic). Trying to contain the mounting panic and fog....I decided to open a bag of Lindt chocolates because I could pop one in Morgan's mouth to give me a quick reprive from questioning. I popped a few in my mouth, too, for good measure.
So now I am able to think a tad bit clearer and decided to check out, pissed that now I had to pay for a half eated bag of Milano cookies and Lindt chocolates. Why couldn't I crave something less expensive??? We get outside to the car and I took another quick look at Dexter.....188! I sat there defeated...depressed....feeling like crap and holding back tears. Morgan now swearing that if he found a magic jeanie and could have three wishes....the first would be a giant robot......the second would be a giant laser that could change things.....and the third would be the ability to get the robot to use the laser and zap a cure for diabetes to all that have it. I was grateful that he included that!!!!
