No matter how much you plan sometimes you just can't keep your blood sugar where you would like. Last night Leanne and I headed off to a Noonan family gathering. The Noonan family is large bunch that loves to be together and loves to have fun. The last thing I wanted heading up to Worcester for the party was a high blood sugar.

Having the CGM connected was a good idea but I was getting very angry every time I would look at it and see my blood sugar was above 200. I was with great company but with a high blood sugar I couldn't get out of the funk that I was in. Every little thing was getting to me, the noise and number of people had me taking short trips to the bathroom to get a minute to regroup. During this whole process I kept taking insulin to try and get my blood sugar lower. After a small plate of pasta for dinner I started to slowly feel better, I was getting back to my normal fun and easy going self. I was happy to have an hour or so to enjoy the party without having to worry about my blood sugar.
As I said I kept taking insulin to try and get lower, that would eventually catch up to me and cause a low blood sugar when we got home around 10:30. My blood sugar was at 67, I would have to have a bowl of cereal and an english muffin to get my blood sugar up before heading to bed.
