so i’ve been sick for the past 2 days. it happened suddenly. one minute i felt fine, and then the next i felt like i was on my deathbed.
at first, my BGs were remaining very stable and on target; so i didnt think i was as sick as i actually was. but as the evening crept upon me, i needed more and more basal. i was doing IM bolus corrections every 2 hours, just trying desperately to keep my BGs under 200. this has been working, but i have been having to increase my TB% as the day progressed. and today alone, i have done 5 IM corrections! (so far) and thats with the higher TB%. (currently at 150% TB)
how do you handle your sick days? do you have a plan? do you have any tricks up your sleeves? what is your frustration level like?
please tell all. i am feeling miserable and alone here. and my non-D husband hasnt a worry in the world. (of course he doesnt know how it feels when BGs get so high; its as if i have the flu, on top of having the flu) in his opinion, he just says "no big deal; take more insulin, have some oatmeal, have some tea, take some aspirin, get some rest…all logical of course, but who wants to hear normal logic when battling against one of the crimes of this disease!!
looking forward to hearing from all of you !
