I was at 75 at 9am when I took my break, for the next three hours I would be running all over the course. I obviously needed some food but was very nervous about taking any insulin to cover what I ate. I decided that no insulin would be the best bet, for the next three hours I felt great and was very happy that my blood sugar stayed right around 100. At lunch it was the same thing, I was eating a meal that had forty carbohydrates, I decided to go with .3 units of insulin. Again I got lucky and stayed right around 90. It was all luck, I could do the exact same thing tomorrow and I may have blood sugars around 200. Each day is different I'm just happy that today went so well.
The weird thing about diabetes is that the patient has control, yes the doctors and nurses do an amazing job but at the end of the day the patient is the one making the decisions. I don't know of any doctor that would tell me not to take insulin to cover a meal, I know my job and body however and knew what would be best. I do not encourage what I did today but I do encourage everyone to take a chance and trust yourself and your judgement. I have had days like this where I was 300 after work and days where I have been 40 after work. It has been tough learning how to handle a strenuous work day, it takes a lot of trial and error. You will have ups and downs but you have to believe in yourself and trust the decisions that you make when it comes to your diabetes.
