The toughest part of the bug was trying to figure out how my insulin to take when my blood sugar was high. Around 1am I was at 300 and feeling very warm and sick. I was very scared to take the 3.7 units of insulin that my pump suggested, what would happen if my blood sugar went low?? I could not keep any food down and a low would be very tough to recover from. After taking the suggested insulin dose I returned to bed where I would only be able to sleep for an hour at a time. I was getting up every hour and my blood sugar was very slowly coming down but would never be below 200 until noon today. As the day went on I began to feel better and I very slowly started to eat normal foods again.
Right now my body feels strong again, I never like being sick but if I can be done with it in twenty-four hours I can't complain. Tomorrow will be very interesting as my body starts getting adjusted to an increased work load during the day and working out after work. The fun spring time blood sugar fight has begun!!
