Well, this morning turned out ok. Could have been a lot worse. I woke up with a horrific headache, but at the time still felt hungry for breakfast. I was 80 so I took my normal 7 units of insulin and then went ahead with prepping the English muffin*. I like to give the insulin a good 5-10 minute head start. Well, by the time I sat down a wave of nausea came over me and the food suddenly looked disgusting and I was like, “oh shit”. This is what we call ourselves a little conundrum. I started by drinking a huge glass of OJ, (which actually has more carbs than the English muffin) and I waited and watched my DexCom for about 60 minutes (fast-acting insulin peaks between 60-90 minutes). Around that time I had to drink another small OJ and about 30 more minutes later, two glucose tabs. Shortly after I was holding steady at 135 and it had been about 4 hours since the insulin (fast-acting insulin is pretty much out of your system after 4 hours), so I finally started to relax. Just sucks when you feel sick like that, but you've already taken insulin so you have to force feed yourself.
