The next curve ball came five minutes in to my break, I was informed that I would be on a machine all day. For the next six hours I would be seated and my blood sugar would go crazy. This was the knee buckling curve ball that made me look foolish, a lot like the video below. I quickly took an extra two units of insulin to cover my lack of physical work that would follow. My pump would vibrate around 10am letting me know that I was at 187 and rising, in goes another two units of insulin. My blood sugar would go up to 211 but honestly I felt a bit higher than what my pump was reading.
The rest of my day was uneventful but I was shocked when I sat down for lunch and took five units to cover a sandwich, an apple, and a fiber one bar. On an active day that meal would only take 1.2 units of insulin. These days happen and they are not fun. As time goes on I will get better control of my blood sugars and hopefully stay below the 200 mark.
