|I had no choice but to love football|
My numbers in the morning were okay. After I got to work, my sugars started to climb, and then they hung out in the area of the 300's for about five hours. The first I bolused with my pump, then after that, I bolused with a needle, and still nothing. I was also drinking water, rather than my desired coffee, just to help. Around 5:30, I felt thirsty as though I was probably 500. I was ready to bolus without testing, but decided to give that handy dandy meter a shot. 115. All day I didn't feel high, but I was, and then when I felt high, I couldn't ask for a better number. I was great the rest of the night. I felt low a little bit, but never actually went low.
I was thinking about it yesterday, and I couldn't figure out why my sugars were so high. I was thinking about it this morning and still couldn't figure it out. Not until I sat down to write this, and actually started writing and saw the word adrenaline did it click. Adrenaline raises my blood sugar. A day that was fueled by adrenaline: well now it makes sense. Maybe next time I will be able to figure this out during the adrenaline high, and give myself just a teensy bit extra insulin and I can have a good diabetes day, along with a busy work day.
